Industry to anticipate a robust showing in 2009 TTNA
Apr '08
The fifth edition of Techtextil North America (TTNA), the international trade show for technical textiles and nonwovens, took place April 1-3 at the Cobb Galleria Centre in Atlanta, Georgia.

The show hosted 310 exhibitors representing 21 countries, while the total verified registration reached 3,711 from 39 countries. The show welcomed nine international pavilions from Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy (two pavilions – fabrics/nonwovens and machinery), Portugal, Taiwan and Turkey.

“Our exhibitors and attendees alike commented repeatedly on the point that Techtextil North America provides them a unique opportunity to connect and get business done, all in one place, over three days' time,” said David Audrain, president of Messe Frankfurt USA.

“This level of value results from bringing together a variety of industry segments, products and services from across the globe.”

Techtextil North America 2008 attracted an eclectic group of researchers, manufacturers and product specifiers and provided them with an internationally recognized Symposium program and industry-leading exhibitors, spanning more square feet of exhibition space than ever before.

Techtextil North America continues to exceed attendee expectations. Simply put, “The key is seeing what's new, and we are,” said Rieter Corporation's Tim Hockney.

Symposium Snapshot:
