A global industry of textile companies will come together at the largest display of specialty fabrics and technical textiles in the Americas. Buyers flock to companies showcasing an astonishing array of fabrics, fiber, films, chemicals, end products, components, equipment and technology services at one massive tradeshow event.
While the Specialty Fabrics show will continue on its success of meeting traditional fabric market needs, the Advanced Textiles Expo side of the show continues to build, meeting the needs of roll goods suppliers, materials and other products and services for advanced applications.
New this year will be the introduction of Shade Expo, a stand-alone event with a concentrated focus on all things sun protection. IFAI intends to grow the shade industry through this event, attracting new participants to the show floor, including: architects, pool and deck contractors, landscape architects, parks and recreation officials, and other demographics interested in shade protection.
The show will also feature comprehensive programming with professional business sessions, outstanding networking events, keynote speakers and CEU credits for architects. The 2015 show also features the fourth annual ShowStoppers awards competition, displaying innovative products and services, and the International Achievement Awards.
Attendees enjoy a comprehensive experience which includes educational programming, the industry's largest trade show, industry specific division meetings, networking and social events. Educational programming includes both traditional symposia and features programming in advanced textiles.
