Polygiene springs into action as trade show season kicks off

Publish date: 13 mar 2023

Polygiene® lines up a busy March and April at leading textile and hard surfaces trade shows around the globe.

Polygiene®, the global leader in antimicrobial and stay fresh technologies, will exhibit at fairs in the USA, Germany, and China to present its leading Freshness and Product Protection technologies and spread its “For Mindful Living” brand message.

Performance Days in Munich, Germany, kicks off proceedings on March 15th-16th. The fair has been the leading sourcing fair for high-performance functional textiles and accessories for over 15 years. Polygiene has exhibited since 2008 and was one of the original partners at the show’s inception. At the fair, Polygiene will reveal a new consumer after-care partnership and the brand’s recent Life Cycle Assessment with Sweco®. The assessment showcases the big environmental benefits associated with using Polygiene StayFresh™ in garments and skipping every other wash.

Discussing the event, Global Category Director, Markus Hefter said, the team at Polygiene Group are very pleased that the increasing importance of sustainability is directly in line with our overallFor mindful living!” message and is now being addressed even more collaboratively within the industry. We are firmly convinced that inter-industry collaborations are the right approach and look forward to developing new long-term partnerships.”
