29
Oct '08
Building on the success of the first Advanced Textiles conference in June 2008, and the endorsement of the international audience, Industrial Fabrics Association International (IFAI) today announced a second conference to be held 2-3 April 2009 in Brussels, Belgium.

As the headquarters of the European Union, NATO, various stakeholder institutions and international large-scale enterprises, Brussels combines business, politics and cultural tradition and offers a pleasant meeting platform to invite European and U.S. chief executives to discuss challenges and bottlenecks of technical textiles innovation in the next five to ten years.

Brussels is also a very attractive cultural hub with the famous marketplace "Grande Place," designated in 1988 as part of the World Cultural Heritage of the UNESCO. The venue of the conference will be the contemporary Hotel Bloom, a truly modern conference facility in central Brussels.

The premiere of IFAI's Advanced Textiles '08 took place in the cultural hub of Berlin, Germany, 12-13 June 2008, and gathered a U.S.-European business forum of 100 attendees from 14 countries. The conference was conceived as a U.S.-European entrepreneur networking event to foster bilateral and cross-sectoral cooperation, strategic partnerships and innovation project creating new business opportunities.

Based on the success of that event, Advanced Textiles '09 will again be geared to provide a networking platform for industry representatives from the various application areas of technical textiles from clothing and home fashion to medical, automotive, protective via the application in architecture.

According to Hartwig Birszwilks, Director Sales and Marketing Julius Heywinkel GmbH, Germany, who was a speaker at this year's conference: "I was impressed by the cross-sectoral audience coming from various application areas of technical textiles and the tremendous interest in our double-wall fabrics. It was an extremely interesting symposium for those who belong to the community of technical textiles."

For Advanced Textiles '09, IFAI will partner with Brussels-based Fedustria, the Belgian association for the textile, wood and furniture industries. Several other associations and government institutions already confirmed their willingness to actively support once more the second edition of this conference. Among them are:

IVGT, the German association for technical textiles ITMF, the International Textile Manufacturers Federation U.S. Department of Commerce Clubtex, the French Association for the Promotion of Technical Textiles r2ith, the French Network of Innovation for Textiles and Apparel UIT, Union des Industries Textiles, the French association of Textile Industries ACIMIT, the Italian Association for Textile Machinery

The conference will focus on five major themes:

1. Smart textiles: Challenges and bottlenecks in the various application fields
2. Highlights in safety and protective textiles
