Organisers of the trade fair for processing textile and flexible materials, which makes its debut in Frankfurt later this year, say the show's IT platform is almost fully booked up.

The Network@Texprocess IT market place for software products has signed around 60 IT companies as exhibitors

The exhibitors, most of whom are small to medium-sized firms, are presenting IT solutions for pattern design, product lifecycle management (PLM), enterprise resource planning systems, trade and internal and external logistics. The line-up also includes 3D visualisation, 3D body scanning and RFID technology.

Texprocess takes place from 24 to 27 May 2011 alongside the Techtextil, the International Trade Fair for Technical Textiles and Nonwovens.

The event covers the entire value chain from pattern design and cutting, to textile processing, finishing and logistics. The Source it! sourcing platform will also bring together production companies and fashion labels from all over the world.
