ITMF Opens Registration For Annual Conference In China
The International Textile Machinery Federation (ITMF) has opened registrations for its ITMF Annual Conference 2023, scheduled to be held in Keqiao, China from November 4-6, 2023.
The conference is being co-hosted by the China National Textile and Apparel Council (CNTAC) and the Shaoxing Municipal People’s Government.
More than 500 international industry experts from around the world from along the entire textile value chain, from fibres to retail, are expected to attend the conference.
The theme of the conference is ‘Digitalisation & Circularity – Megatrends Shaping the Textile Industry’, under which experts and academia will shed light on how the textile value chain is coping with these trends.
They will also help better understand the underlying dynamics and identifying the risks and opportunities.
In the various sessions, experts will discuss topics like, how the fibre markets will adapt to the increasing demand for recycled fibres and also on how the textile industry can reduce the carbon footprint.
Other topics include how new technologies will accelerate the industry’s transition towards more circularity or how upcoming regulations will impact production around the world.
In addition, ITMF will once again recognise the winners of the ITMF Start-up Awards 2023, ITMF Sustainability & Innovation Awards 2023 and ITMF International Collaboration Awards 2023.
The conference will also host two other concurrent events, which are the 10th Belt & Road Textile Conference 2023 and the 6th World Textile Merchandising Conference (WTMC) 2023.
