Together. Now and here. – this is the motto under which the Neonyt community will come together in Berlin next January.

How can collaboration in the fashion industry and other industries succeed in an era dominated by social distancing? If proven solutions and the established annual plan lose their effectiveness, the priority must be reset. The winter edition of Neonyt will take place in Berlin from January 19 to 21, 2021 and will show how it can work. Now and here. – this is the motto under which the Neonyt community will come together in Berlin next January. The global hub for fashion, sustainability and innovation thus meets the industry's need to move closer together and cooperate more closely. Hot topics that concern the entire fashion industry define the agenda: Globalization and collaboration will be on Neonyt's agenda in January, as will diversity and digitalization. "For many people, the change came practically overnight – it made it clear how networked and at the same time fragile the entire system is," says Thimo Schwenzfeier, Show Director of Neonyt. "How seriously we really take sustainability, we must show through our actions – here and now! The global corona pandemic has exposed injustices in the textile supply chain and at the same time triggered international discussions on equality and justice. In contrast, solidarity was shown in the fair fashion industry whenever possible. The Neonyt exhibitors are showing it: They have launched the Fair Fashion Solidarity movement and provide labels and stores with concrete recommendations on how they can work for fair conditions in the fashion industry, especially in times of Covid-19. Glocalization, collaboration, diversity and digitalization - from September 2020 to January 2021, these are the topics of Neonyt. Exhibitors and long-standing partners will describe their perspective on these issues and provide the fair fashion community with insights into their business.
