Messe Frankfurt launches regional forums for the French textile care industry

The aim of the organiser, Messe Frankfurt France, guided by its advisory board representing the profession, is to dynamise the offer for textile care. In the wake of the Texcare France trade fair (formerly JET Expo), the regional forums are intended to encourage meetings and interactions in the heart of the French regions.

The first Texcare Forum France will be held on Monday 27 September 2021, from 9am to 5pm, at the CCI of Nantes St-Nazaire.

This event will kick-start the sector's recovery and the development of its economic activity. It will bring together a fully representative offer of the industry: equipment, products, services and insurances, for textile care specialists such as laundries, dry cleaners and launderettes. 
Some fifteen exhibitors and partners are scheduled to attend, including: Alliance Laundry Systems (PRIMUS), Association Française des Laveries (AFL), CTTN-IREN, Electrolux Professional, Fédération Française des Pressings et Blanchisseries (FFPB), Gemsys, Generali Assurances, Gesticlean / Brooclean, Girbau, Immel / Lavandys, Kreussler Textile Care, LM Control, Miele Professional, Royant.
Institutions and associations will complete this array of professionals. 

Messe Frankfurt France will focus on the latest advancements in this constantly evolving industry by staging a series of conferences throughout the day around four themes:
- Dry cleaners: back to basics … or almost!
- Textile treatment in times of epidemics
- Manufacturers? Distributors? No, partners!
- Self-service laundries: heading for the future!

The Nantes Forum will be the launching point for a series of regional events in France. The next one will take place in Marseille in December 2021.

These events will meet the sanitary protocol in effect: wearing a mask will be compulsory and entrance will be upon presentation of a valid sanitary pass.
