Dornbirn-MFC as idea- and network generator

In recent years Dornbirn-MFC has gradually developed as a “global brand“ and its rising number of participants and international origin reflect its status.

Visitors from more than 60 new companies were registered last year. Overall, more than 700 participants from 34 nations visited Dornbirn (80% from Europe, 15% from Asia, 5% from the Americas).

In 2017 some delegations from Asia and the Americas have confirmed their participation.

The European characterised innovation platform for the fiber industry and the various stages of the value chain should act as idea- and network generator – each participant is part of the success of the event. Help shape the “Innovation Community“ and encourage your business associates to visit the meeting.

For the introductory lecture in the field of protective applications a speaker of NASA/USA could be acquired on the issue of flame retardend textile fibers for space research. Inter alia a reputable global producer of protective clothing will present the latest developments and the requirements of the preliminary stages of the supply chain.

In the field of sportswear Vaude the innovative and repeatedly rewarded outdoor brand will enrich the topic with its presentations. Appealing contributions from industry and research will be delivered on the issue of functionalization and ecological manufacturing process.

In order to generate a more interactive and more vivid programme sequence additional discussions within the main topics are being planned.

Top-class key note speeches with foresighted and partly provocative perspectives will give fresh momentum to all participants.

Expert Panel “Textile & Nonwovens Waste“ – a Threat or Opportunity?“ the day before the opening of the Congress:

This highly topical issue will be handled precisely by an expert team from the fiber industry, the downstream stages, retail and for the first time from the waste disposers (Waste Management Companies).
