(Update: June 18 2022)
The meeting of the DNFI members in Frankfurt, originally planned for January 2022, had to be postponed due to Corona. Now that the Heimtextil trade fair can take place in Frankfurt at the end of June, it was decided to organize a smaller-scale DNFI event in Frankfurt as well.
As with all events, there is also the option to take part online.
The necessary ZOOM link is included in the press release and at the bottom of this page.
