The Belgian Textile Research Centre (Centexbel) and the Federation of the Textiles, Wood and Furniture Industries (Fedustria) will organise the First International Congress "Innovations in sports textiles" in Ghent - Belgium on June 24th & 25th 2010.

This project is enjoying the support of the Belgian Olympic and Interfederal Committee and of the Belgian Sports Technology Club.

Sports cover a large domain characterized by both democratization and a growing professionalism. The great attraction of sports events and the increasing importance attached to health and wellness urge many people from all social classes to practice sports. As a consequence, sports are now a massive growth market.

Comfort, sustainability and the desire to put down increasingly better times, to run/jump/ride longer distances, and to break one's own records (not to mention the ones held by others) boost the development and perfection of sportswear, sports equipment and sports infrastructure. And exactly in these domains, textiles are a clear vantage! For textiles are light, supple, flexible and easy to functionalize and structuralize. The exact combination of the exceptional properties of textiles and the precise application of textile substrates produce fashionable and high-performance sportswear, lighter yet stronger sports equipment and sustainable sports fields, racing tracks…

About thirty international experts are awaiting you with an appealing congress programme on recent textile developments that will add a new dimension to sports! The parallel sessions will focus on comfort, health & well-being, sustainability and sports performances.

This international congress will be more than just a scientific congress on innovations. You will also be able to touch and feel new textile materials and sports equipments by visiting the exhibitors' booths. The partnering and business meetings during the coffee and lunch breaks will enable you to discuss recent product developments in detail. This “European Enterprise Network” in the fringe of the congress desires to promote the co-operation between companies and organizations in the field of sports textiles.

This comprehensive event on innovations in textiles will take place in an exclusive venue in the most delightful city of Ghent!

The congress dinner is set in a medieval castle in the centre of Ghent, in which very premises textiles have been produced during the early days of the industrial era. Today, we would like to use this authentic setting to create a European platform that will boost and support the collaboration and networking in the field of sports textiles.
