We are pleased to announce the second edition of Advanced Textiles '09 in Brussels. The Industrial Fabrics Association International (IFAI) has organized 20 lectures by successful, experienced industry and research experts from Europe and the U.S driven innovators creating new solutions for their businesses.

The conference program presents fascinating issues that will accelerate new business opportunities and fruitful partnerships. Advanced Textiles '09 is the European-U.S. entrepreneur networking conference. An energetic 1.5 day program to fuel your entrepreneurial spirits.

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:
Dr. Reinhard Büscher, Head of Unit, D2 Support for Innovation, EU Commission on Transatlantic economic cooperation focusing on eco-innovation and entrepreneurship to achieve sustainable growth in a competitive world.

Michèle Sioen, Chief Executive, Sioen Industries; President of Fedustria on, Technical textiles processing and innovative coating technologies for various industrial applications.

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.
