Drive for individual, cost-effective and sustainable products to keep consumption of water, chemicals and energy low was very much evident at the latest edition of the International Conference on Textile Coating and Laminating - TCL2017 – held in Berlin during November 8-9 2017. New concepts and techniques were described towards this goal at the event.

It was for the first time in its 26 year history that speakers and delegates travelled to Berlin, Germany, for the conference.

The presentations given over two days highlighted the drive for individual, cost-effective and sustainable products keeping consumption of water, chemicals and energy low. New concepts and techniques were described to achieve these aims, sparking informative discussions.

Participants opined that TCL2017 presented a unique opportunity to co-locate different strands of the global industry at one place. One delegate, Chia-Hsun, Su of Wideplus International, Taiwan, said “I benefitted from purchasing all the proceedings of TCLs from 2010-2016 and enjoyed attending TCL2017 very much. Many of my daily working problems have been solved by this information and thanks again for your persistent efforts for the last 26 years.”

Yvonne Heinen-Foudeh, Gerber Technology agreed, “Thanks to International Newsletters for making Gerber part of TCL2017: Excellent speakers for an agenda focusing on innovation and future-oriented topics, high-calibre delegates from all over the world, an interactive, contemporary conference format and all of that in a pleasant perfect work environment. With the 2017 edition, International Newsletters proved their leadership position as knowledge mediator for the segment of coated and laminated textiles – with all various facets involved. Together with many fellow market players we look forward to the 2019 opportunity for exchange and communication.”

The conference was organised by International Newsletters. (SV)
