SAVE THE DATE – June 25, 2019

Texmeeting by Texfor is going to take place on the morning of June 25 at the Fira de Barcelona Gran Via exhibition Center, within the ITMA fair. Save this day

Textile has been a pioneer in the internationalization of industrial companies, being one of its main competitive levers for decades, by vision or need, exchanges with the outside have been the mainstay of our sector. At present, global trends make it necessary to redesign the strategy to adapt to new changes and competitive challenges.

In this edition of Texmeeting with the motto Work intl Progress, we  will deal with internationalization from a different point of views, not only from the classical sense of the concept but also from the impact that digitalization has on the new context, the growing importance of global sustainability and the challenge of traceability for the entire supply chain.
