G3 Conference by Synthetic Yarn and Fiber Association
Aug '10
There has been a major transformation of the domestic textile business in the past 12 months. As market conditions quickly changed, the domestic textile market reacted to meet the "just in time" needs of the supply chain. Sourcing patterns have become even more critical to our industry.

Many have described the economy as "uncharted waters". To help the industry navigate these waters, the Synthetic Yarn and Fiber Association (SYFA) is pleased to announce our fall conference - G3: Global Green and Growing - The New Textile Market. The conference will be held September 28-29 at the Sheraton Airport Plaza, Charlotte, NC.

September 28-29, 2010
Sheraton Airport Plaza
Charlotte, NC

This conference will focus on the important factors that are impacting our industry. Sourcing issues will be covered by a major sportswear manufacturer and an industry leading consultant. We will also have industry experts to present on growth in synthetic fibers, raw material developments, product safety, sustainability and current trade issues.
