EATP's Executive Seminar to be held on May 22 in Brussels

30
Mar '12
The European Association for Textile Polyolefins (EATP) has released details of the programme for its annual Executive Seminar, to be held in Brussels on May 22.

The theme of the Seminar is “Meeting the Challenges of a Changing World”.

Introducing the programme, EATP Director General Frédéric VAN HOUTE said: “2011 started with a further recovery of the European fibres and textile industry from recession but was marked, later into the year, by new financial and economic uncertainties. In this moving context, the aim of this year's EATP Executive Seminar is to have a fresh look at the evolution of the industry in the near and longer term future.”

“Times are uncertain and challenges numerous. However, anticipation is essential and therefore the European textile industry should come together to discuss the strategies of success in tomorrow's world.”

“Indeed, in a global and rapidly changing world, the knowledge of all factors affecting the value chain is crucial. Understanding the evolution of feedstock costs and detecting future trends will allow to work on strategies in man-made fibre and in textile markets. Developments in old and new Europe and the emergence of third countries will create competitors but also new opportunities.”

“So business will need to integrate the dynamics of an ever-increasing competition and the instruments to guarantee fair trade as well as growing sustainability concerns and a more stringent environmental legislation. Innovation will continue to be key.”

“Our seminar will include presentations on all these issues and look into how an association and its members will be able to help meet this challenge.”

“Some of the presentations will be more relevant to polyolefin fibres and textiles, but a majority of them will deal with general textile issues. Indeed, members are increasingly interested in the total competitive position of European textiles. Therefore, the conference is of interest to companies involved in polyolefin fibres or textiles, but also to all other actors in man-made fibres and textiles. CIRFS is again closely associated to the organisation of this event.”

“The 2012 EATP Executive Seminar will include papers from companies, associations and consultancies, providing an in-depth look into the industry and providing participants with new information and ideas.

It will give industry leaders a unique opportunity for strategic reflections about the future of the whole fibres/textiles value chain with excellent networking opportunities.”

Highlights of the programme include:
- A consultant on polyolefin feedstock trends;
- Views on developments of the global world fibre production;
- Results of the annual EATP Market Study;
- An insight into textiles in Russia;
- Global challenges for polyolefin based nonwovens;
- An overview of sustainability aspects of carpets;
- A paper on the upcoming “bio-revolution”;
