NEONYT on air 2021 – the program

NEONYT will also go on air again with its January 2021 edition. The digital format was already introduced in July 2020 when the global hub for sustainable fashion could not take place due to Corona. Here are the first (and soon more) topics

Under the motto “Creating the future of fashion sustainably together”, NEONYT / Messe Frankfurt and its community will go on air from January 18 to 22, 2021. On the sustainable agenda are industry topics that are discussed in interviews, keynotes and panel talks and provide industry insights. In addition to topics such as digitization, the focus is on a transparent textile value chain and everything that goes with it: circularity, accountability, green financing, sustainable sourcing and blockchain solutions.

Who: Neonyt Community
When: January 18-22, 2021
Where: on Neonyt’s social media channels
Why: Creating the future of fashion sustainably together

During the planning for “Neonyt on Air” it was felt how important knowledge transfer is for the future of fashion and that we are jointly responsible for generating it. Thimo Schwenzfeier, Show Director Neonyt.
