PERFORMANCE COLORS by Nora Kühner were launched in April 2016 as a cooperation project between PERFORMANCE DAYS and the renown, Munich-based designer Nora Kühner. Together with an international team of experienced designers 40 trend colors are identified for the corresponding season two years in advance. Just like PERFORMANCE DAYS, PERFORMANCE COLORS by Nora Kühner is presented twice a year. The color card fan can be purchased exclusively during the fair and is complemented by color story via email a few weeks afterward. Thanks to DyStar CSI the trend color fan features the light and washing fastness on the backside of the color cards; for colors swatches and color recipe just contact DyStar. To improve the daily business for all visitors and exhibitors, all PERFORMANCE DAYS exhibitors own the color trend fan of the respective event. So starting with April 20-21st 2016 PERFORMANCE DAYS community is speaking the same color language!
PERFORMANCE DAYS is synchronized with the industry’s deadlines – making it possible for designers, product and purchasing managers to perform sourcing at just the right time for the upcoming summer and winter collections in April/May and November. The latest trends and innovations in the functional fabric industry are on display by more than 130 top quality exhibitors from 22 nations. Unlike the other big trade fairs, PERFORMANCE DAYS offers a relaxing and dedicated working atmosphere – creating a platform for specific business meetings and direct introductions to new producers. The early timing makes the trade fair the top address for innovations, trends, and product launches. The independent PERFORMANCE FORUM and PRESENTATIONS make the trade fair a one of a kind event.
All participating exhibitors take part in the PERFORMANCE FORUM, which creates a one of a kind platform where designers and managers can get started on their sourcing. Divided into nine main categories, the PERFORMANCE FORUM TABLES cover all the important areas in the field of functional fabrics. The clear and comprehensive classification provided by the FORUM TABLES offers a great opportunity to get a first look at current trends and textile innovations.
Next to the FORUM TABLES the PERFORMANCE FORUM WALL gives an overview of the highlights in the world of accessories and additionals. Divided into categories and equipped with detail information, the FORUM WALL complements the sourcing overview provided by the PERFORMANCE FORUM.
To assist the sourcing process, PERFORMANCE DAYS offers codes for all products – making it easier to find the right product for the desired application. The PERFORMANCE CODES can be found by clicking the image below and when visiting the PERFORMANCE FORUM, today’s top designers, purchasing managers, and product managers can either search for specific features or get a general picture of what manufacturers are working on today.
