Fifth IMB Forum to feature a comprehensive congress program

Apr '07
Koelnmesse presents first highlights of the congress program; program to be augmented by Speakers Corner for corporate presentations From sourcing to selling, today's textile-processing industries have a thoroughly global outlook, as they have to transport large quantities of goods and data across great distances.

The presentations will be supplemented by vivid examples of how the process is applied in practice in industry. For example, Prof. Frank Piller (Aachen Technical University and MIT) and Prof.
