These include the China National Textile and Apparel Council, Gaiqi (China) KDG Company Ltd, the Hualian Garment Company and the New Wide Group.

The conference will run over three days, with the first day devoted to registration and the opportunity for delegates to visit the colour technology exhibition being staged alongside the event. The delegate package also includes a special banquet organised for the evening of the Thur 24 May.

Comments Susan Williams, SDC president and chair of the SDC conference steering committee, 'This is a unique collaboration and the Society is delighted to be working alongside both AATCC and CTIC to deliver such an important conference.”
