The European Textile Services Association (ETSA) 2017 conference will kick-start from June 14 in Paris. This year, the bi-annual event is expecting around 120 to 130 participants. The conference open for top management of ETSA member companies and associations is based on the theme 'Innovation and disruption- the textile services sector in transition'.

ETSA's mission is to promote the textile services industry and the interests of member companies, in cooperation with national textile services associations from across Europe. At the three-day conference, speakers will elaborate on various topics including Hygiene of domestic washing - Evaluating risks and opportunities, Threat of uberisation? Building on the ETSA 2016 customer expectations' study, The internet: connectivity revolution - impact on textile services, Future of EU policy on resource saving, sustainability and the circular economy, Political disruption, economic innovation and A new paradigm for business creativity.

"Every day, millions of people across Europe wear, sleep on, eat off or use rental textiles in some way or other. Rental textiles include workwear and protective clothing, corporate business wear, hospital and surgical textiles, textiles for hotels, restaurants and care homes, hand-drying towels, floor mats and mops and industrial wipers. Textile services include textile selection, garment manufacturing, stock management, logistics and delivery, care and maintenance," Robert Long, ETSA secretary general said.

"Our industry association represents the leading textile services companies, as well as the detergent, fabric and garment manufacturers. This industry is a major contributor to the European economy, with a current annual turnover of circa €11 billion (2012) and employing 135,000 people in the EU," Long added. (RR)
