Welcome message from VDMA to US and Mexican textile industry

Are you interested in developing and manufacturing new textile products? Do you wish to enhance your competitiveness by increasing production efficiency and quality of your textile products? Do you place a particularly high value on saving energy and material resources in the production process? Are “digitization” and “smart factory” more than empty buzzwords for your business?


Yes? Then we recommend the one-day technological VDMA B2B Forum & Conference themed “German Technology meets US Textile” in Charlotte (November 6, 2017) as a must-attend for you.

Industry experts from around 25 VDMA member companies will present practice-oriented technology topics along the entire textile chain from spinning to finishing and dyeing in two parallel sessions.

Moreover, important cross topics, such as energy and material efficiency, life cycle costs, industrial internet (Industry 4.0) will enrich the program and the interactive discussions among the participants.

The networking will be supported by B2B meetings pre-arranged, or spontaneous bilateral meetings in a separate meeting area including a table top exhibition) and by a conference dinner in a relaxed atmosphere.

Starting from the end of May 2017, visitors can register on this homepage for the company presentations and arrange meetings with the VDMA member companies, their subsidiaries and agents.

The VDMA Textile Machinery Association warmly welcomes all decision-makers of textile manufacturers in the USA to attend this B2B Forum & Conference.

Therefore, please register for the technology lectures and the B2B meetings until 6th October 2017 on this homepage.
