Sponsors contribute to success of Dornbirn-MFC

Along with its income from registration fees, the Dornbirn Man-Made Fibers Congress which will run from September 16-18, 2015, is dependent on support of sponsors like industry, universities, colleges and the technical press.

Long-standing sponsors of the Congress include, Province of Vorarlberg, Dornbirn City, Lenzing AG, CIRFS and IVC, who for many years been actively supporting the Dornbirn-MFC.

The new Congress management headed by Friedrich Weninger has recently succeeded in roping in new sponsors like the Kunstuniversität Linz, the Plastics Cluster of the Lower Austrian Economic Agency, the German Hahl/Pedex Group and Märkische Faser GmbH.

“In the next few years additional sponsors will be solicited at home and abroad to ensure the Dornbirn-MFC's continued success,” a press release from the organiser said.

Dornbirn is Austria's smartest town, according to a nation-wide poll taken by Industriemagazin and it ranks first in as many as five categories out of a total of eight categories.

These include quality of life, enterprise-friendliness, innovative strength, traffic and transport planning, and energy efficiency.

“We endeavour to organize the Dornbirn-MFC in accordance with the standards fixed for the Austrian environmental label ‘Green Meetings & Green Events’” the organisers added.

“For the first time, our catering will also meet this environmental standard as our catering partner will serve products originating within a radius of less than 150 km, a perfect marriage of culinary excellence and sustainability,” they informed.

Papers by top-ranking international experts representative of academic research and industry make the Congress a unique event.

Along with excellent plenary lectures and specialised papers, this year's meeting will also feature a panel discussion with representatives of internationally renowned brands.

Like many others, the Lenzing Group makes use of the Congress as a communication platform and innovation engine.

With its closest partners in downstream textile processing stages, Lenzing will benefit from the findings and most up-to-date insights in the field of cellulose fibre technology.

Main topics of the next Dornbirn MFC include Fibre and filament innovations, Bio-polymers, Functionalisation and adaptation of fibres and surfaces, Nonwovens/Filtration, Environment and health and Advanced fibre and processing technology. (AR)
