Head to Atlanta, GA from May 17 to 19 and be sure to stop by the Georgia World Congress Center for Texprocess Americas. It is co-located with Techtextil North America, making the two-for-one event an ideal representation of the entire global textile value chain—from high-tech textile products and fibers, functional apparel fabrics, smart textiles, composites, and nonwovens, to the technologies involved in the processing of textiles, including design, cutting, sewing, knitting, embroidery, finishing, refining, IT, and logistics.
Walk the show floor and view over 170 exhibiting companies, visit the Texprocess Americas Symposium to learn more about pressing issues faced by players in the sewn product industry, and sit in on Tech Talks led by influential members in these segments.
