ITMA has become the Headline Sponsor of the Future Materials Awards, which will take place in November 2014, in Dresden, Germany.
 
ITMA joins Invista’s CORDURA brand (the durable fabric brand) and ARCHROMA (a global leader in specialty chemicals), which are Platinum Sponsors of the event. 
 
The glittering gala dinner to reward innovation in the technical textiles industry will be held on Wednesday 26th November, 2014 – the day before the 8th Aachen-Dresden International Textile Conference starts.
 
World Textile Information Network, publisher of international technical textiles magazine Future Materials, launched the Awards to recognise success in textile innovation and celebrate the essential work of the many businesses which support the industry.
 
“The technical textile and nonwovens materials sector is on a growth trajectory, led mainly by end-user industries’ demands for more applications and innovation,” said Charles Beauduin, President of CEMATEX, the owner of the ITMA exhibition. “We are delighted to be involved with the Future Materials Awards, which will honour the businesses and individuals that are shaping this sector.”
 
The ITMA Future Materials Awards are open to all the end-use sectors for technical textiles as well as materials experts, product developers and designers. 
 
They will celebrate winners in 21 categories, including the best innovations in sportswear, protective textiles, industrial textiles and medical textiles.
 
There will also be awards for groundbreaking partnership development, best start-up company and a lifetime achievement award.
 
A panel of renowned industry experts will decide the winners, including Linda Keppinger, Global Materials Director at Nike; Dr Jean-Pierre Haug, Secretary General of Oeko-Tex; Dr Peter Dinsdale, World President of the Textile Institute; Michael Sieber, Research Textile Engineer at the US Army Natick Soldier Systems Center; Siegfried Winkelbeiner, CEO of Schoeller Textil, Thomas White, Textile Innovation Director at Under Armour; and Lutz Walter, Head of R&D and Innovation of EURATEX.
