Throughout the day, the industry players were able to discuss all the issues related to the entire textile care sector, in an atmosphere as warm as it was professional.
The 4th Texcare Forum France took place on Monday 17 October 2022 at the Espace Tête d’Or in Lyon. This day, which also hosted the general assembly of the French Laundries Association (AFL), brought together more than 170 textile care professionals: dry cleaners, laundries, launderettes, etc., national and international suppliers of products and services, and federations.
Messe Frankfurt France organised various round tables on pressing topics, such as: « Dry cleaning – Reacting after the crisis », « Self-service launderettes, laundries & dry cleaning – Recruiting and retaining staff », « Laundry – How to valorise textile waist from professionals », and « The future of self-service launderettes: what other business model? ».
These round tables were held alternately with workshops led by federations and partner suppliers: Inforum, Kreussler, Eberhardt and Electrolux Professional.
The feedback from participants confirms a positive outcome: "As always, great meetings with visitors, organisers and exhibitors", "A forum focused on technology and a more responsible future!", "We will further increase our position as the leading insurance provider for dry cleaners thanks to this event! See you in Paris in November 2023 for the next Texcare trade fair!"
Save the date!
The next appointment will not be regional but national. Texcare France will return as a trade fair from Saturday 25 to Monday 27 November 2023 at the Parc des Expositions de la Porte de Versailles in Paris.
