Austrian Fibers Institute, Korean Textile Federation (KOFOTI) and Dyeing & Finishing Technology Institute (DYETEC), are cooperating for 1st Dornbirn-GFC Asia fibre innovation congress, which will be held at Samsung Creative Innovation Center in Daegu/South Korea from March 3-4, 2020. An agreement on this cooperation was signed on October 21, 2019 in Portugal.

Around 300 to 400 participants from the whole textile chain are expected to join this event. This special event should improve the network activities with Asian companies.

The Dornbirn-GFC takes place in Dornbirn/Austria every year in September. Over 700 international participants from more than 35 nations utilise the Fiber Innovation Congress in Dornbirn as a networking platform and to be informed on the latest innovations of the global fibre and textile industry. 

As a federation, KOFOTI will be covering the whole textile chain, as it has strong links to China, Japan, Taiwan and other South Eastern Asian countries. KOFOTI will also be organising the trade fair Review pid, which will run at the same time in Daegu. This will lead to a strong synergy as the trade fair gets around 500 exhibitors and approximately 25,000 participants.

The programme design will be similar to Dornbirn-GFC congress in Austria. Plenary speakers will open the Dornbirn-GFC Asia congress on March 3, 2020. Around 30 expert lectures will concentrate on March 3-4 on key topics like fibre innovations, nonwovens and technical textiles, mobility, smart fabrics, sustainability and circular economy.

From European side, renowned university professors and board members, owners of top companies from the fibre and textile industry, have already confirmed their participation.
