Trade fairs of the conventional kind are hardly possible in 2020 due to Covid pandemic precautions, but a number of organisers are offering digital alternatives. Mayer & Cie. is taking part in the Innovate Textile + Apparel Virtual Trade Fair that the media company World Textile Information Network (WtIN) is holding from 15 to 30 October 2020. The aim of the show is to provide textile professionals with a virtual place in which to share news and views directly, to present products and to demonstrate innovations.
Trade fair focus on mattress fabric, interlock and Relanit
Mayer & Cie. will be concentrating on three product areas at the virtual trade fair. The first is the mattress sector. In this segment the circular knitting machine manufacturer boasts the world’s most productive machine, the OVJA 2.4 EM. It knits up to 30 kilograms of mattress cover fabric per hour. The double electronics OVJA 1.6 EE sets standards for pattern options. In the double jersey segment Mayer & Cie. is presenting the D4 2.2 HPI high-performance interlock machine. Then there is the OV 3.2 Qce, which knits 8-lock structures, Punto di Roma, Piqué and spacer fabrics. The third focal point is a well-known top seller, the Relanit 3.2 HS. The selling points of the latest model in the Relanit line-up are its productivity and reliability, especially when working with elastomeric plating.
New trade fair concept an opportunity for the future
“We have had good experiences with web meetings and video conferences, making increased use of them in view of travel bans, and will definitely be using them on an everyday basis,” says Mayer & Cie. head of sales Wolfgang Müller. “There is no reason why a new trade fair concept should be a makeshift solution either; it can be an opportunity for the future irrespective of the current pandemic situation.”
