About Material Vision

Trade Exhibition and Conference on Materials for Product Development, Design and Architecture


A forum for innovative materials – in collaboration with Techtextil in May 2011!

Material Vision offers a singular platform for materials innovations, product development and architecture. At Material Vision, materials companies make fast and effective contact to the important strategic target groups of product developers, industrial designers and architects. They receive feedback, precise definitions of requirements and new markets for their materials. Product developers and industrial designers develop products from the view of the consumer’s requirements, which means for a buyer’s market. That’s why they need tailor-made materials and the materials specialist’s knowhow.

Since 2009, Material Vision is being staged parallel to Techtextil, International Trade Fair for Technical Textiles and Nonwovens. Both events together attracted 23 902 expert visitors from 85 countries in 2009 and provide a comprehensive overview of the international market for innovative materials – representing considerable added value for exhibitors and visitors alike.

As of 2011, Texprocess - Leading International Trade Fair for Processing Textile and Flexible Materials (May 24 – 27, 2011) – will also join forces with Material Vision and Techtextil to build a powerful professional platform.
