Neonyt, which is believed to have evolved into a major B2B community platform for fashion, sustainability, and innovation, will be held in a B2B format in Düsseldorf from January 28 to 30, 2023, with additional satellite events planned throughout the world. Frankfurt Messe explains Neonyt is a synonym for a major shift in the textile and fashion sectors, and it believes that Germany’s central location in Europe makes it a hub for the sustainable textile and fashion business. In the future, Neonyt will be held as a licenceevent alongside FASHN ROOMS in Düsseldorf. According to the organisers, this will include Neonyt as part of a larger event with at least 600 worldwide businesses.
Messe Frankfurt also emphasises the worldwide and multi-disciplinary Fashionsustain conference, which will take place in conjunction with the Fashn Rooms in Düsseldorf in January 2023. Messe Frankfurt intends to hold further international spin-offs from the conference, which was already held outside of Germany prior to the epidemic. The January 2023 event is being organised in collaboration with Igedo Company, which organises fashion trade events. This means that Igedo will be in charge of the operational planning and implementation of Neonyt in Düsseldorf right now.
“We are happy that the Igedo Company is joining forces with us,” Schmidt says. Neonyt and its cross-sector community are in good company in Düsseldorf, which will benefit the trade-show landscape as well as the sustainable textile and fashion scene –
Ulrike Kähler, managing director of Igedo Company, and managing partner Philipp Kronen add, “Of course, we are very thrilled to have the opportunity to work extensively on Neonyt’s next stage of development.” At the same time, this not only reaffirms Düsseldorf’s status as a fashion centre, but also demonstrates the industry’s extraordinarily high appreciation for the Igedo Company, even 73 years after its founding. We must now roll up our sleeves and collaborate closely to meet the next goals established for Neonyt in Düsseldorf.”
The first direct-to-consumer event for Neonyt, called ‘Neonyt Lab,’ took place in June, and Messe Frankfurt says it hopes to conduct similar events of this type in Frankfurt in the future. “Internationalisation,” it continues.
