Euratex Convention on innovation in textile industry

Jul '15
The 2015 edition of the annual Euratex Convention will be devoted to sustainable innovation in the textile and clothing industry.
 
The Convention will be organised by the European apparel and textile confederation (Euratex) and its Italian member federation Sistema Moda Italia (SMI) together with TexClubTec on 18 November 2015 in Milan, Italy, in conjunction with ITMA textile technology fair.
 
“The Convention is designed to launch a debate on tomorrow’s challenges of the industry,” Euratex said in a statement, and invited representatives of business, industry associations, policy makers and media to join the same.
 
In response to the global economic transformations, the European textile and clothing manufacturing has already undergone radical changes in the latest decades. The European companies have increased the variety of their products and found new application fields for the textile materials.
 
The industry moved to production of higher value-added goods and makes considerable contribution to the other sectors – automotive, medical, construction, agriculture and others. To retain their competitive edge, the European companies are increasingly investing in innovation and introducing the latest technologies.
 
Nowadays, sustainable production has become an integral part of the companies’ business strategy. This includes technological innovation of production process, resource efficiency, recycling and use of sustainable textile materials, as well as exploring new business models.
 
At the 2015 Euratex Convention, thought leaders from industry and technology will discuss if the EU textile and apparel sector has found enduring competitive advantages in its focus on quality, innovation, sustainability and high value added. 
 
During the round table discussion, textile and clothing manufacturers will share their practical experience and promising textile technologies and markets, Euratex said. (RKS)
