The 3rd edition of the popular European-U.S. networking event is announced at IFAI Expo 2009. According to Stephen M. Warner, president and CEO of the Industrial Fabrics Association International (IFAI), "The rate of change and innovation in the technical textiles industry is outpacing the consumer awareness of applications, as well as the current standards and text procedures. There is a critical need for more substantive information exchange platforms that discuss the blending of technical textiles with other industry and disciplines such as medicine, electronics and construction.

"Thus, we are pleased to announce we will continue to develop these platforms, locating IFAI Advanced Textiles '10, 16-17 June 2010 in Paris. Based on the endorsement of an international audience and support from many prestigious European organizations for our first two conferences in Berlin and Brussels, we are confident the annual IFAI Advanced Textiles conference is viewed as the leading exchange platform for the technical textile industry."

Warner was on hand at the IFAI Expo 2009 press conference on Sept. 23rd to announce the third of these specialized conferences which promote international cooperation and cross-sectoral partnership between the U.S. and European technical textiles industry-which can include everything from nanotechnology, e-textiles, nonwovens, geosynthetics and many high-performance applications within biomedicine, green building and sustainable design, aerospace, automotive, sports apparel, military, safety, architectural shade systems, graphics and signage.

Further, Warner announced Clubtex, the leading technical textile association in France, will be the key supporting organization of Advanced Textiles '10. "We are extremely pleased to have their support."

According to Warner, "In these difficult times in the world economy we want to back up our industry and pave the way for new business opportunities by fostering targeted networking in professional application communities." The uniquely open conference allows the top experts from different disciplines-both corporate and academic--to engage in lively exchanges and brainstorming, as well as identifying new business synergies, making the event very worthwhile in identifying diverse new revenue-driving business partnerships.

Warner also announced the keynote speaker for the event will be distinguished European executive Frederique Mutel, General Manager, JEC, who will speak on the world markets of composites.

The Germany based agency IHOFMANN, whichspecializes in technical textiles and building up strategic alliances is co-organizer, developing the concept and managing the conference. Dr. Isa Hofmann, CEO IHOFMANN: "The concept is to provide decision makers in the complex value chain of technical textiles the occasion to meet on a professional platform, getting inspiration, face-to-face contacts and networking opportunities in an inspiring ambiance. With Advanced Textiles '10 we want to contribute to initiate new cross-sector innovation projects and comfort our industry to bank on the power of innovation."
