Nov '08
Symposium is Prime Opportunity to Learn of New Technologies, Applications and What Will Be Shaping the Industry in the Near Future.

The latest technology, applications, and the overall direction of the technical textile and nonwovens industry will be presented by experts and leaders from around the world during Techtextil North America Symposium(TNAS) being held April 21-23, 2009 at the Sands Expo & Convention Center in Las Vegas.

Held concurrently with the exhibition, the symposium will contain thirteen sessions with more than 65 presentations in a variety of formats that will cover a wide range of topics from composites, automotive, defense textiles and nanotechnology to performance textiles and materials technology.

“I am confident in the success of the upcoming Techtextil North America in Las Vegas,” comments Bill Smith, Symposium Director. “Though we are certainly in tough economic times, most individuals I speak with are still upbeat. Some are even reporting record sales while others are new suppliers entering the market. And the chance to expose in greater detail our industry to those in the Western part of the United States is receiving a growing enthusiasm.”

Keynote Address and General Session

Performance Fiber's CEO, Richard C. Brown, will present the keynote address “Adapting to Changing Times” which will focus on how the fiber industry has changed and how companies adjust to changes in order to remain competitive. Other topics in this opening session will include global participation, the state of the manufacturing industry in North America, and a look at the current state of the industry.

Buildtech / Architecture

This special session presents ideas and methods learned from several international conferences on the subject by the staff of International Newsletters

Military / Defense Textiles
