EATP Executive Seminar to be held on May 27

EATP (the European Association for Textile Polyolefins) has released details of the programme for its annual Executive Seminar, to be held in Brussels on May 27.

The theme of the Seminar is "Strategies for Success in the European Fibres and Textile Industries".

Introducing the programme, EATP Director General Colin Purvis said: “The theme of this year's EATP Executive Seminar has been influenced by the gradual recovery of the European fibres and textile industries from the recession which marked much of 2009. The period of crisis is over, but many challenges remain. So now is the right time for the European textile industry to come together to debate the strategies that can bring success in tomorrow's competitive markets."

“Managing a business during recession has short-term needs, like understanding cost trends in raw materials such as feedstocks and the rapidly changing dynamics of global competition in fibres and textiles. These are covered in our programme."

“But no business which intends to be around for the future can afford to neglect medium and long-term issues even during recession. So our programme includes also presentations on strategies essential to future competitiveness and growth, such as innovation and global competition."

“Although a few of the presentations will be of specific relevance to polyolefin fibres and textiles, most deal with general textile issues. This was a strong request from EATP members, who want to see the total competitive position of European textiles. This means that the conference is of interest not only to companies involved in polyolefin fibres or textiles, but also to those from any branch of textiles."

“With presentations on key industry issues and activities from leading companies, associations and consultancies, the 2010 EATP Executive Seminar will provide new information, new ideas and new contacts for the large number of industry leaders who will be present. The 2010 EATP Executive Seminar will be a valuable venue for strategic thinking and high-level networking for the whole textiles value chain.”

Highlights of the programme include:
- A senior European Commission official, on EU textile policies
- The President of CIRFS: European Man-made Fibres Association, on the challenge for man-made fibres
- A prominent consultant on global feedstock and polymer trends
- The Director General of Edana, on growth and technical change in nonwovens
- Success and development in a major Turkish textiles group
- Growth in technical textiles
- Innovation as a tool for success
- Challenge of global competition
- Results of the annual EATP Market Study

In line with the industry trend to pack a maximum of business into a minimum time, and to reduce costs, the 2010 conference will be limited to a single day, at a substantially reduced cost.

The Conference is open to EATP and CIRFS members (Conference fee €150) and to non-members (Conference fee €195). The Conference is of interest not only to industrial companies but also to consultants, financial institutions, machinery producers and chemical suppliers.
