The theme of the conference is to promote Investment Opportunities for Indian Technical Textiles. The conference will focus on Agrotech, Geotech, Buildtech, Protech and Sporttech.

The key note address will be delivered by Dr J.N.Singh, Joint Secretary, Ministry of Textiles and the valedictory address by Mrs. Shashi Singh, Joint Commissioner of Textiles.
