Be inspired & create future - the KEYHOUSE (hall 5) is the innovation hub and competence center for the textile industry presenting future-oriented and business-related concepts with a highly innovative approach in a concentrated manner. This interactive trade fair format forms a backdrop for smart textiles, future fabrics and technologies with a high degree of integration in textile products and high fashion. Pioneering showcases, sustainability, new technologies and value creation processes are put in a spotlight in the context of cross-sector macro trends, rounded off by expert workshops and seminars on trends, technology, finishing and research.
„The organisers have managed to create an inspiring setting at KEYHOUSE that links two mega trends. One driver is sportswear and the other technology. Both together sketch out the future path for the fashion and textile industry. The participative and interactive concept of this new unique hall gives these developments a further push.”
Pierre-Henry Servajean, Bolid'ster
