“Our biggest challenge as organizers is to get trade back to the exhibition, to get them interested in new things and to encourage exchange.” - Ulrike Kähler, Managing Director Igedo Exhibitions.


Neonyt Düsseldorf will be celebrated on Areal Böhler, from January 28th to 30th, 2023 side by side with FASHN ROOMS, the international trade fair for Fashion, Shoes, and Accessories and their Showroom concept. The concept focuses on a platform that brings together a tailored and transparent line-up of businesses in one area at a certain point in time. In order to participate in Neonyt Düsseldorf, exhibitors had to pass a strict sustainability check. You will find everything from contemporary, casual, and urban wear to denim, streetwear, and sportswear, all the way down to business attire.

"Local, International" is the motto in January. Among the brands taking part are Greenbomb, Wunderwerk, like a bird, HempAge, Werner 1911, Soruka, Thies 1856 and Stapf and Les Racines du Ciel. All strictly checked for sustainability, in cooperation with Lavinia Muth – Sustainability Advocate & Consultant.




A space in the center of the exhibition shared by both trade shows Neonyt and FASHN ROOMS will offer a variety of talks addressing significant sustainability concerns of the Neonyt community in between FASHION ROOMS seminars and trend lectures.



Prepeek is a social event created especially for content creators, bloggers, YouTubers, journalists and multipliers. It will not only demonstrate the fun side of green fashion, but it will also provide a deeper understanding of sustainability. Fatima Njoya, Glamour Junior Fashion and Sustainability Editor, will lead the event on all three days.


Luxiders Magazine, together with Green Knowledge and Greenstyle Munich, will participate on the PrePeek Talk "The Greenwashing Trap", a journalistic insight into transparent and authentic communication. On Sunday, 29th January, 14.00 hours.
