IFF announces Innovation Award

05
Mar '10
Imagination and inspiration are the driving forces behind innovation. "Innovation" means change. A great idea is the beginning, but until transformed into action, it's simply an idea. The drive for improvement, the willingness to challenge the norm, the passion and belief in what you are doing--these are the characteristics of influential innovators.

The Industrial Fabrics Foundation (IFF) announced the development of an Innovation Award to inspire specialty fabrics industry companies from around the world to not only come up with great ideas, but make them happen. IFF will tell the stories of specialty fabric manufacturers and suppliers who have challenged the norm, succeeded, and who are leading the way to unchartered territories. These companies and their stories will inspire others and act as benchmarks for tomorrow's challengers to surpass.

The three categories are:
- Fabric, hardware or machinery
- End product
- Process

Entries will be judged by textile professors and industry colleagues. The deadline to submit an entry is 16 July 2010. The winners will be announced at IFAI Expo Americas 2010, 27-29 October in Orlando, FL, and will be featured in the Specialty Fabrics Review magazine.

Innovation is the heart of creating a specialty fabrics industry that will lead us all through the 21st century. The IFF Innovation Award will inspire the transformation of ideas into action. Join IFF and help foster the next generation of specialty fabrics industry innovators.
