The second edition of Neonyt, the hub for fashion, sustainability and innovation, as its organizer Messe Frankfurt calls it, will again take place at Kraftwerk. This season, the thematic focus topics of Neonyt are on retail and sustainability, water and denim production. Thimo Schwenzfeier, show director Neonyt says: "For multilabel fashion retailers, it's more important than ever to reinvent oneself. After many companies have just started to implement digital and omnichannel concepts, they now face the next challenge–sustainability." Neonyt will address these challenges and also continue to deal with the subject of water, as in the January edition. Closely connected with the topic of water is denim production. For this reason Neonyt dedicates denim as a key topic. Parallel to the Neonyt trade show, industry experts and speakers will be presenting best practice examples and discussing approaches to solutions during the denim panel at the affiliated conference Fashionsustain. Neonyt offers a comprehensive supporting program including keynote speeches and panel talks throughout the trade show times. All panels and presentations will take place on Tuesday and Wednesday, July 2-3, at Kraftwerk Berlin and are embedded in the program of the conference formats FashionImpact and FashionSustain parallel to Neonyt.
In addition We Want Shoes, the digital trade fair for footwear, bags and accessories launches The Brand Show (TBS), a new video ordering platform in the fashion sector at Neonyt. TBS will be presented exclusively at Neonyt for the first time.
