Platforms for Personal Contact

Bayern Innovativ identifies current trends in technologies, industries and markets. Based on this knowledge, Bayern Innovativ, coordinator of the "Textile Innovation" network, conceives and organises topic-specific innovation conferences with accompanying exhibition.

For participants the conferences are the ideal market place to gain insight into latest developments and to meet new potential partners and customers also from other technologies and industry sectors.
As a speaker or exhibitor you can present your developments and competences in an innovation-oriented environment on these cooperation platforms.

Companies and Insitutes from Bavaria present their latest developments on the Bayern Innovativ joint booth on high-tech trade shows like techtextil Frankfurt, JEC Composites Show Paris, Hannover Messe or Materialica Munich.
The Bayern Innovativ Joint booth has an excellent reputation throughout Europe and is a good contact point to obtain information about innovations "made in Bavaria".

The platforms for personal contact are the driving force for continuously expanding the network.
