August 2018

North Carolina is renowned for its textile industry. And current developments are ensuring that this also remains the case in the future: in the past two years, companies from around the world have invested more than 100 million US dollars in rural North Carolina, creating hundreds of new jobs. And this is largely due to one of the most significant hubs for textile research and development and the country’s leading hotbed for talent in the textile industry: the College of Textiles at North Carolina University.

An ideal partner for Techtextil North America which, at its upcoming edition from 26-29 February 2019, will be giving visitors and exhibitors direct access to the latest research coming from the world’s leading textile institution. “We are thrilled about this new endeavour, and our first ever official academic partnership with North Carolina State University’s College of Textiles. Our goal has always been to create a unique experience for all visitors. Techtextil North America is where professionals from across industries come to cultivate business relationships and learn about the latest developments, technologies and trends hitting the textile industry. Through our collaboration, Techtextil North America 2019 will serve as a direct link between the industry’s innovators and the next generation of textile professionals. We hope to create an engaging environment that sparks new ideas, partnerships and industry growth,” said Kristy Meade, Show Director, Technical Shows: Textiles, Sewn Products, Equipment and Technology at Messe Frankfurt North America.
