From 13 - 17 July 2020 fashion and digital experts were discussing innovative topics related to business, lifestyle and knowledge in panel talks and live interviews.
Five days of virtual Neonyt
Opportunities and challenges for the sustainable fashion scene in times of COVID-19. Digitalisation as a driver of innovation. And news from the Neonyt community. These and other topics were at the focus of the first “Neonyt On Air”.
As an introduction to the rest of the line-up, on Monday 13 July 2020 Show Director Thimo Schwenzfeier, Creative Director Magdalena Schaffrin and Content Director Max Gilgenmann were addressing the community in video statements. And Olaf Schmidt, Vice President of Textiles & Textile Technologies at Messe Frankfurt, gave us an idea of what will be discussed on Friday, when the focus will be on Frankfurt Fashion Week.
“Data is in the Air” on Tuesday morning for The Brand Show, Browzwear and Yoonatech. Terms like “virtual fashion”, “digital sampling” and “3D body scanning” are part of everyday life for these three digital business experts. In the afternoon Joor talked about what is a B2B online marketplace and about the collaboration with Neonyt for the summer 2020 edition.

In the afternoon, Neonyt partner and fair fashion pioneer Hessnatur, Lisa Jaspers from Folkdays and a representative from Fashion Council Germany talked about the global problem of supply chain disruptions and order cancellations in production facilities.
