When it comes to the Techtextil Forum, it is an opportunity for an interactive exchange of ideas between exhibitors, visitors and researchers. The Techtextil Innovation Award is granted to those with the grandest vision and discovery in the areas of technical textiles, nonwovens and functional apparel fabrics.
