Formerly known as IFAI Expo Americas, the new show aligns with the industry’s flagship publication, Specialty Fabrics Review, and strategically focuses on the needs of the traditional market segments, according to conference management. The growth and demand for advanced textile applications led to IFAI’s establishment of the Advanced Textiles Conference & Trade Show, held in tandem with Specialty Fabrics Expo, to meet the needs of the top level of the industry supply chain and companies that supply roll goods, material and other products or services for advanced applications.
Both shows are designed to advance ideas, products and technologies, and to help grow businesses and markets across the entire specialty fabrics industry. The 100,000+ square feet of show floor showcases more than 400 exhibitors of fabrics, fibers, films, composites, equipment and technology services who meet with thousands of top decision makers and buyers representing global and niche specialty fabrics markets.
Comprehensive programming is designed to help attendees understand the current specialty fabrics markets, end-user applications, emerging markets, advanced technologies and future of fabric products.
Attendees can expect professional business sessions and roundtables, outstanding networking events and keynote speakers, CEU credits for architects and an International Buyers Program.
The 2013 show also features a special exhibit on the aerospace market; the second annual ShowStoppers awards competition displaying innovative products and services, and the International Achievement Awards.
The 2013 events are expected to exceed IFAI Expo 2012 numbers, which was the largest trade show in the organization’s 100-year history, according to conference management.
The Industrial Fabrics Association International is the world’s leading and longest-running specialty fabrics trade organization since 1912, with nearly 1,900 member companies located in 55 countries.
