“I am confident in the success of the upcoming Techtextil North America in Las Vegas,” comments Bill Smith, Symposium Director. “Though we are certainly in tough economic times, most individuals I speak with are still upbeat. Some are even reporting record sales while others are new suppliers entering the market. And the chance to expose in greater detail our industry to those in the Western part of the United States is receiving a growing enthusiasm.”

Brown, will present the keynote address “Adapting to Changing Times” which will focus on how the fiber industry has changed and how companies adjust to changes in order to remain competitive.
