Dornbirn Man-Made Fibers conference begins from Sep 11
06
Apr '13
The DORNBIRN-MFC will take place for the 52nd time and has become the European/American lead event in the field of man-made fibers. The congress is geared towards future themes like sustainability, innovation but also communication with the upcoming generations and has been very positively accepted and supported by the fiber-making and processing community. Coordinated world-wide activities of the program committee along with profound contacts to academic/research institutions and roof organisations have created an increasing interest in this event. Therefore it is possible to print a very detailed preliminary programme folder. 
 
New Challenges Need New Solutions
The 52nd DORNBIRN-MFC, from 11th to 13th of September 2013 with more than 100 lectures and held by experts is offering an insight into the innovative power of man-made fibers, multiple fields of application and new approaches for effective solutions. Out of a large number of high-quality proposals we have tried to select for our visitors a representative cross-section of lectures illustrating the contribution of various stages of the processing chain to a final product.
 
Already in the opening session a lecture of the Institute for Management Research/Denkendorf (Germany) will deal with trends in the textile industry, new business models, development cooperation and the role of the man-made fibers industry in the processing chain of the future. A further lecture of the Sustainable Apparel Coalition/USA is dedicated to environmentally friendly garments from fiber to final product, including distribution.
 
The DORNBIRN MAN-MADE FIBERS CAMPUS offers again the possibility to young students and pupils from textile schools to present their works in a short presentation to an auditorium of experts.
 
The other topics run as follows:
-  Sustainable Solutions for the Fiber Industry (Bio-polymers and Bio-technology, Man-Made Fibers for Environmental Protection)
-  Fiber Innovations (Filaments)
-  Unconventional Fiber Applications (Composites)
-  Finishing
-  Sports- and Functional Wear
-  Market Overview (Korea, India, Indonesia)
 
 
Stronger presence of roof organisations and lead-industry
In parallel to the 52nd DORNBIRN-MFC, CIRFS/Brussels, the European Man-made Fibers Association, and IVC/Frankfurt, representative of major man-made fibers manufacturers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland will have meetings in Dornbirn. High ranking delegations including speakers are expected from: AFMA – American Fiber Manufacturers Association, JCFA – Japan Chemical Fibers Association and KOFOTI – Korean Federation of Textile Industries.
