Techtextil, the world's biggest trade fair for technical textiles and nonwovens, will present a comprehensive symposium programme for exhibitors and visitors from 24 to 26 May 2011. As in the past, the 16th Techtextil Symposium and the 6th Avantex Symposium are being held under the patronage of EURATEX – European Apparel and Textile Confederation. Top speakers will present the latest product, material and technology developments and offer a future-oriented view of the trends and developments in the international sector.

“Fully in keeping with the motto of the leading international trade fair for technical textiles and nonwovens, 'Pure innovation energy', the two symposiums take an in-depth look at issues of importance to the sector and where the trends are headed”, explains Michael Jänecke, Brand Manager Technical Textiles of Messe Frankfurt. “The sym¬posiums offer orientation and information in the expanding sector of innovative textiles and their applications.”

Altogether, visitors and exhibitors have the choice of 60 different Techtextil and Avantex lectures. The focus of the speakers, all experts from business and research, will be on user-oriented presentations with the emphasis on aspects of practical interest to visitors.

New symposium concept
The concepts of both the Techtextil Symposium (from 24 to 26 May 2011) and the Avantex Symposium (on 24 and 25 May 2011) have been revised to ensure greater transparency. There will be two lecture blocks in the morning, each with six lectures, and two in the afternoon, also with six lectures per block.

Thus, two blocks of lectures will always be held concurrently. The daily time¬table has also been changed with the morning programme running from 09.30 to 12.15 hrs and, following a break for lunch, the after¬noon pro¬gramme from 14.00 to 16.45 hrs. This restructuring gives visitors and exhibitors the chance to take part in as many of the highly interesting lectures as possible.

A programme committee made up of renowned international experts has compiled the individual lecture blocks. Each lecture block is devoted to a single subject.

Ten lecture blocks on three days
The 16th Techtextil Symposium begins on Tuesday, 24 May, under the chairmanship of Dr. Guy Némoz, Consultant for Technical Textiles, Lyon, France, on the subject of 'Fibre-reinforced com¬posites'. The individual presentations will explore the opportunities offered by combining different fibres and materials.

Also on the Tuesday of the fair, Dr. Klaus Jansen of the Berlin-based Forschungs¬kuratorium Textil research organisation will chair lectures on the subject of 'New materials', reviewing innovative material develop¬ments including organically based agricultural textiles, 3-D knitted spacer fabrics for medical applications and thin silicon mem¬branes for use as barrier layers.

On Wednesday, 25 May, the Techtextil Symposium will be chaired by Prof. Roshan Shishoo, Shishoo Consulting, Askim, Sweden, and spotlight 'The latest developments in the field of high-performance textiles using nano-technology'. Rounding off the Techtextil Symposium on Wednesday will be a lecture block on 'Intelligent materials with versatile electronic systems'.
