Co-located events Techtextil North America and Texprocess Americas will change their event cycle and shift permanently to odd years after the 2022 editions.

Last year, Techtextil North America and Texprocess Americas postponed their 2020 editions due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The largest co-located event for technical textiles, nonwovens, machinery, sewn products, technology, and equipment in the Americas will next be held 17–19 May 2022 in Atlanta, Georgia.

Beyond 2022, however, due to a shift of the events’ parent shows (Techtextil and Texprocess Frankfurt) to an even-year cycle, the North American editions will also undergo a cycle change, with the subsequent events scheduled for 10–12 May 2023 in Atlanta, remaining in the odd year thereafter.

Kristy Meade, Group Show director – Technical Shows at Messe Frankfurt North America, said that with the changes being made in Frankfurt in response to the pandemic, they had to act in the best interests of the industry. She added that hosting the Frankfurt and North American events within the same calendar year would make it hard, if not impossible, for companies to participate in both.
