32 B2B meetings among 39 companies.
From 14 to 17 May 2019 EU-TEXTILE2030 team took part in the last edition of Techtextil and Texprocess, the most important exhibition related to technical textiles: an international platform for users of technical textiles from the widest variety of sectors, as well as for manufacturers of apparel, fashionwear, upholstered furniture and leather products.
With a total of 1,818 exhibitors from 59 countries and, in all, some 47,000 trade visitors from 116 countries, Techtextil was an excellent opportunity for networking actions and for getting in contact with companies, R&D centers and stakeholders.
Besides, the EU-TEXTILE2030 partners focussed mainly on B2B meetings, specifically planned for companies affiliated to cluster members.
Po.in.tex, the Textile Innovation Cluster based in Biella (Italy) was in charge of the organisation and management of these meetings, and the results achieved are very satisfying: 32 B2B meeting were held among 39 companies.
Also the first follow-up from companies is very positive; companies appreciated the organisation and the high levels of technical expertise of the exhibitors met, and confirmed their interest in having the chance to meet other companies for establishing new co-operations.
The next exhibition for EU-TEXTILE2030 partners will be ITMA Barcelona (20-26 June 2019), when the companies affiliated to partner clusters will have the chance to take part in the EU-TEXTILE2030 Networking Dinner, on June 24th.
