May '14
The twelfth edition of Techtextil North America, the premier trade show for technical textiles and nonwovens is thrilled to announce the co-location with JEC Americas and the move to the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, TX, June 2-4, 2015. Both events expect to host 450 exhibitors and 4,000 visitors together.
“Houston is the ideal location for our 2015 event as it represents a thriving business environment specifically in the fields of energy, aerospace, medical and other key manufacturing industries that are very relevant to the technical textile industry. stated Dennis Smith, President, Messe Frankfurt, Inc. He went further to add: Our co-location once again with JEC also represents an ongoing initiative to bring related events together to add increased value to the attendee experience”.
Techtextil North America and JEC Americas will provide a platform for suppliers and end-product manufacturers to access the entire high tech value chain. The strength of this strategic event is the opportunity to provide an unparalleled opportunity for technical textiles and composites manufacturers and suppliers to showcase their technologies, expand their expertise and network with a wide array of industry professionals and gain a competitive edge in the ever growing market, helping to provide a well rounded experience for our visitors.
“We favor long-term relations. Our strategic partnership with Messe Frankfurt is meant to gradually bring an increase added value to our respective markets. We are very happy that the first outcomes are very positive.” Says Mrs. Frédérique Mutel, JEC Group President & CEO. 
“Moreover, choosing Houston as the next destination for our joint event happens to be totally in line with JEC’s mission to address every sector and every segment of the composites Industry. It allows us to get closer to clusters such as Energy & Environment, Oil & Gas, Pipes and tanks, Wind Energy or to go further in our Aeronautic or Automotive networks.”
Houston’s foreign trade through February of 2013, was more than $40.3 billion, up 3.0 percent from the $39.2 billion in trade handled in the first two months of ’13*. It is the home to 23 Fortune 500 companies, birthplace of nanotechnology and ranks as one of the top ten metro areas handling significant research and commercialization. Nearly half of all jobs are in non-energy fields, such as business services, technology, aerospace, medicine and manufacturing.
