Topics to be covered at this year's event include smart fabric technology advancements, the needs of the consumer, and how to market and sell smart fabric technology to manufacturers.

“We have a dynamic lineup of speakers from around the world who will be presenting at this year's Smart Fabrics conference, which will be chaired by Stacey Burr, CEO of Textronics and a V.P. at Adidas,” said Barbara Rojas, Senior Producer, IntertechPira. “Smart Fabrics 2011 will offer conference attendees a variety of perspectives on the industry with presentations from researchers and developers, designers and textile manufacturers, to name a few.”

The pre-conference seminar, “Fashion Phreaking,” will be led by Nancy Tilbury, Nancy Tilbury Studios, and Course Director of MA Fashion Laboratory, Kingston University London. The seminar will provide an interactive learning atmosphere for participants to examine ways in which smart fabric technology can be incorporated into cutting-edge fashion, with the finished products to be showcased in London storefronts.
