Messe Frankfurt repeats its new format with a regional forum in Marseille

2 Dec 2021

Following the success of the Texcare Forum in Nantes in September, the organiser Messe Frankfurt France will once again bring together professionals from the French textile care industry, in the south-east region.

This event will gather a fully representative offer of the industry: equipment, products and services, for textile care specialists such as laundries, dry cleaners and commercial and hospital launderettes, as well as linen managers.

The second Texcare Forum France will be held on Monday 13 December 2021, from 9am to 5pm, at the World Trade Center Marseille Provence

During this day full of meetings and exchanges, participants will be able to attend a series of round-table discussions covering 4 themes at the heart of the industry’s current concerns:
- Pressing: what model for the 21st century?
- RABC method: a guarantee of quality and safety
- Why should hotels internalise their linen maintenance?
- Self-service laundries: heading for the future!

Moreover, the four sponsors of the event – Inforum, Kreussler, Miele and Electrolux Professional – will lead thematic workshops following the roundtables.

More than twenty exhibitors and partners will be attending, including: Adelya Textile Care, Association Française des Laveries (AFL), Cabinet CTC, CKSQUARE, CTTN-IREN, EasyPressing, Electrolux Professional, Fédération Française des Pressings et Blanchisseries (FFPB), GARO®TEK by Gaches Chimie, Gemsys, Girbau, Hangers, Inforum, Kreussler Textile Care, LM Control, Miele, MiRiCal Emblems, Primus, SmartLOCKERS, TDU Expert and VEIT.

This will be the last forum in 2021. Other destinations are planned for 2022: Bordeaux, Lyon and Lille.
