A future-oriented innovation session that zooms in on the challenges and bottlenecks of launching smart textile products on the market.

Five technical sessions focus on emerging application areas-
-Medical and biomedical applications
-Textile membranes and architecture
-Safety and protective textiles
-Transportation and logistics
-Technology solutions and textile surfaces

Two incredible keynote lectures:

IFAI sponsors and supports this cutting-edge textile technology conference designed to boost innovation in the European-U.S. technical textiles community. According to the German trend-scouting Zukunftsinstitut, the "Yes We Can" theme embraced by the new U.S. president expresses a deep aspiration toward collective identities and a business culture based on true relationships.

This will definitively shape the emerging textile marketplace in the upcoming months, and Advanced Textiles '09 will contribute to this emerging new spirit.
