Performance Days

Apr 01, 2016

Summer is in the air at the April 20-21st PERFORMANCE DAYS trade fair in Munich, Germany.

This biannual event, timed to coincide with the sourcing of functional fabrics for seasonal collections, is a unique opportunity for mills and others in the supply chain to attract the attention of top flight international designers, product and purchasing managers. The spring 2016 get-together includes 130 exhibitors from 22 countries.

Besides what is on show, PERFORMANCE DAYS have an enviable reputation for productive networking and information sharing. INVISTA is running two workshops for visitors interested in the widely-specified performance properties of LYCRA® and COOLMAX® branded fabrics.

A one-hour morning session on each of the two days explores the latest COOLMAX® brand innovations. Attendees can get a performance check on their own knowledge of cooling fiber and fabric technology, product specification, measurement and testing, and the optimisation of consumer merchandising and communications opportunities.

The afternoon sessions focus on the performance of LYCRA® fiber branded compression and shaping fabrics with shared insight to consumer needs and wants, and to the subtle combinations of shaping and comfort that increase the market appeal.

These informal, interactive workshops will be hosted by INVISTA experts Huw Williams and Simon Whitmarsh-Knight. Attendance is free to PERFORMANCE DAYS visitors who should e-mail applications in advance to: Places are limited to 15 participants for each workshop.

INVISTA’s rich science base is a continuous source of LYCRA® and COOLMAX® brand innovation that sets standards and enhances consumer appeal across many categories. If you are a mill, brand or retailer, these workshops are a fast-track to better functional fabrics – and better business performance. Don’t miss the opportunity!
