Starting 2019: Four parallel sessions – with a special focus on industrial topics

Platform and most important meeting ground for exchange between executive management, experts & young professionals from industry and science

Aachen, Dresden und Denkendorf forming the 'textile triangle' of the future– creating textile future together

Partner Country 2019: Great Britain

Boasting over 650 participants at three conference locations, the Aachen-Dresden-Denkendorf International Textile Conference is among one of the most renowned textile conferences in Europe. Based on the positive feedback, the organizers in long-standing support with the advisory board have decided to extend the textile conference to four parallel expert sessions. This increase in sessions will be realized in valuable cooperation with:

Forschungs­kuratorium Textil e. V., Berlin
Gesamtverband der deutschen Textil- und Modeindustrie e. V., Berlin
VDMA, Textile Machinery Association, Frankfurt/Main
