Munich Fabric Start
As omnipresent as the topics of sustainability and digitalisation are, the need for information, discussion and advice remains high. That's why we will once again be focusing on these two topics at the coming Munich Fabric Start, we will once again place great emphasis on these two topics - both visually and in terms of content. Starting with the leading theme "Dare & Care", new exhibitors and areas and a top-class exhibitors and areas to a top-class lecture programme.
