World of Textile Processing Expo from April 21

14
Nov '08
In 2009, visitors and exhibitors at IMB – World of Textile Processing in Cologne can once again expect the fair's supporting program to provide an informative and professional range of presentations. The theme of the 2009 IMB Forum will be “Technology for Shaping the Future – Chances through Progress”.

The opening day of IMB (April 21, 2009) will begin with Future Talk, which will be a permanent feature of the program and deal with further important questions on the future of the sector. In the coming year it will be devoted to the motto "Chances for the future: Ecology and Sustainability”, the megatrend of the next decade.

Starting at 2:00 p.m., six high-powered experts will gather in the presentation area in Hall 8 to discuss topics of current interest in the sector. The discussion will be hosted by Prof. Andreas Stockert, Senior Vice President at Kühne + Nagel Management AG, Switzerland.

Even though they come from a range of companies and represent very different perspectives, they are united by their concern for the environment and are trying to implement sustainability in the textiles value chain. After a short introduction of the representatives and their positions, an open discussion will ensue.

The IMB Forum, an integral part of IMB, will take place on April 22 and 23, 2009 in the morning from 10:00 a.m. to 12:10 p.m. and in the afternoon from 2:15 p.m. to 4:25 p.m. In an already tried and tested structure, the four presentations will be split into morning and afternoon sequences, each on a main theme.

On April 22, 2009, the IMB Forum will start with the sequence " Chances for the future: CAD/CAM & Management solutions”. The area of clothing in all its varieties, from women's outerwear and men's and boy's outerwear right through to young fashion and sports clothing, will be the focus during these four presentations.

Special attention will be given to the management of product data and lifecycles with new features and functions that are Web-based and globally usable. The motto of the afternoon is “Chances for the future: Material flow/Logistics/Supply Chain Management”. The presentations will revolve around process acceleration along the value chain and the problems of proving originality. There will also be two further presentations under the aegis of the trade journal Textil Wirtschaft on supply and distribution logistics.

On April 23, 2009 the IMB Forum will start at 10:00 a.m. with the sequence “Chances for the future: Processing of technical Materials”. After looking at the area of smart textiles/wearable computers and the introduction of a new EU project, two presentations from the automotive sector will follow. The IMB Forum program will conclude in the afternoon with four speakers addressing the topic “Chances for the future: Product development/Apparel technology”.

The noon hours on April 22 and 23, 2009, will be devoted to practical solutions developedas part of the EU research project L.E.A.P.F.R.O.G. (Leadership for European Apparel Production From Research along Original Guidelines), which is conducted by Euratex. Koelnmesse is particularly proud to have accompanied this, the largest EU project for the European clothing and textile sector, during all periods of its development.

This was the case in 2006, for instance, when an international L.E.A.P.F.R.O.G. conference was held in parallel to IMB. At the IMB Forum 2007 some of these results were presented for the first time. Now the four main areas of research can present their results.
