The French textile care industry meets once again at a Texcare Forum

23 Dec 2021

On Monday 13 December 2021, the second Texcare Forum France was held at the World Trade Center Marseille Provence. This day brought together textile care professionals from the south-east region: dry cleaners, laundries, launderettes, etc., and national suppliers of products and services.

This second Texcare Forum maintained the ingredients that have made this format so successful: meetings, exchanges and speaking times, all in a professional and friendly atmosphere.

Many moments of exchanges took place throughout the day. This time, Messe Frankfurt France chose to alternate round tables and workshops. The round tables gathered experts from the profession to discuss the latest industry developments and common challenges, while the workshops allowed the event's sponsors to present their latest products related to the discussed topics. Participants were able to interact directly with the speakers, providing direct feedback and interesting discussions. 

A fruitful day for the participants, as their statements attest: "A true moment of meetings and exchanges", "Thank you all for these enriching professional exchanges and these round tables which enabled us to improve our sector knowledge", "Thank you to Texcare France for the organisation, and this opportunity for everyone to meet again!”. This enriching day confirmed this attractive format. The next meeting will take place on Monday 28 March 2022 in Bordeaux.
