ITMA 2015 to host Textile Colourant & Nonwovens Forums
May '15
Alongside the exhibition, ITMA 2015 will also be complemented by a wide range of knowledge sharing events that will feature discussions on issues that impact the industry’s sustainability.

Among the events are the ‘Textile Colourant and Chemical Leaders Forum’ and ‘Nonwovens Forum @ ITMA 2015.

“Launched at ITMA 2011, the Textile Colourant and Chemical Leaders Forum was a success, drawing lively participation from colour and chemical professionals from around the world,” a press release informed.

“This year, the agenda will focus on sustainability in dyeing and finishing processes and participants will be updated on industry opportunities and best practices,” it added.

Covering a comprehensive range of issues, such as current challenges, solutions and future trends, the one-day forum on November 14 is divided into three sessions.

The discussions will range on topics related to chemical pollution and environmental issues and how these impact the market place, how does the supply chain respond and what are the trends or game changers moving forward.

To be held on November 16, the Nonwovens Forum @ ITMA is jointly organised by EDANA and MP Expositions.

The forum will address pertinent issues, challenges and opportunities in the rapidly evolving world of nonwovens.

Pierre Conrath, Sustainability & Public Affairs Director, EDANA will kick-off the forum with an introduction on the nonwovens industry.

Revealing details Conrath said, “The programme is built around the theme - ‘Nonwovens: A World of Growth and Opportunities’.

“Presentations on the latest applications and finishing will benefit ITMA visitors who are involved in or have the intention to move into nonwovens manufacturing,” he added.

The first session will focus on applications and technologies for nonwovens and the second session explores added value ingredients and finishing for nonwovens.

In addition to the forums, ITMA said, participants can gain valuable insights on new technologies and research at the Research & Innovation Pavilion’s Speakers Platform.

ITMA 2015 will also feature the World Textile Summit, a high-level knowledge sharing platform on November 13 and co-located with ITMA 2015 is the Digital Textile Conference on November 15.

ITMA 2015 will showcase end-to-end solutions for the entire textile and garment making chain and will be held over 200,000 square metres of exhibition space.

To-date, over 1,500 exhibitors from 47 countries have signed up to take part in the exhibition. (AR)
