Trade show organiser Messe Frankfurt and SPESA (Sewn Products Equipment & Suppliers of the Americas) have agreed to extend the contract to co-produce the Texprocess Americas trade show through 2032.

The fourth edition of Texprocess Americas will be held 22-24 May 2018 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, and once again co-located with Techtextil North America, making it the largest technical textile, non-woven, machinery, sewn products, technology, and equipment trade show in the Americas.

"Messe Frankfurt prides itself in focusing on a long-term commitment to the industries it serves," said Dennis Smith, president and CEO, Messe Frankfurt, in North America. "As the largest organiser of textile events globally, extending the ongoing collaboration agreement with SPESA is special for us and underlines our dedication to the sewn products industry in the Americas."

Benton Gardner, SPESA president, added: "The announcement is further evidence of the close relationship between SPESA and Messe Frankfurt, which has grown exponentially since the original agreement was signed in 2010. This agreement with our long-standing and valued partner, Messe Frankfurt, will have a positive impact on the industry that both organisations serve. SPESA is pleased and excited to continue this important collaboration."
