The 9th annual Planet Textiles 2018 summit, a sustainable textile summit, is set to be held in Vancouver, Canada on May 22, 2018. The major aim of the event is to share new environmental innovations and business models, and to show how new technologies and financial innovations can increase the collaboration and transparency in the industry.

For the first time, Planet Textiles 2018 will host ‘#PlanetTextilesPod’ as well as a ‘#TeninTen session’. In ‘#PlanetTextilesPod’ interviews with key personals from textile industry will be filmed while in the ‘#TeninTen session’ selected key innovators will pitch their technology or service to the delegates within 10 minutes.

Moreover, sessions will be conducted on financial models and mechanisms, real-world examples and original case studies of textile companies that have already managed to scale up sustainability, how they have successfully applied new investment to grow and what true investment costs actually look like.

The event is scheduled one day prior to the Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC) meeting at the same venue, making it easy for members to move between the two events.

The event follows on from 2017’s edition held in Bangalore, India where around 350 delegates debated the issue of water use, conservation and pollution throughout the textile supply chain. It is being organised by MCL News & Media and the SAC. (VM)
