Texprocess Americas Wins Award Two Editions In a Row

Feb 14, 2017

Trade Show Executive Magazine has awarded Texprocess Americas two awards for the Fastest 50. Each year winners are selected based on the highest percentage of growth in each of the following categories; net square feet of paid exhibit space, number of exhibiting companies and number of attendees. This year Texprocess Americas brings home for the second edition in a row (2014 and 2016) awards for net square feet of paid exhibit space, and number of attendees.

"Making the Fastest 50 list once again is a sign of success and underlines our commitment to the U.S. industries that we serve, commented Dennis Smith, President and CEO, Messe Frankfurt North America. Achieving this accomplishment is the result of our successful industry partnerships combined with the hard work of our U.S. and global textile team which keeps us very motivated."

Texprocess Americas, co-produced by SPESA, was held at the Georgia World Congress Center, in Atlanta, Georgia May 3-5, 2016 alongside co-located shows Techtextil North America and JEC Americas. The three in one show brought in over 9,000 visitors from top industry executives, buyers, designers, engineers, technical directors, plant managers, product development managers, media and more.
