The stage is set for the most anticipated event in the textile industry as the 2023 ITMF Annual Conference prepares to open its doors in Keqiao, China, from November 4 to 6. Co-hosted by the China National Textile and Apparel Council (CNTAC) and the Shaoxing Municipal People‚Äôs Government, this year’s conference promises to be a milestone in the world of textiles.

Digitalization and Circularity: Shaping the Textile Industry’s Future is the overarching theme, capturing the pulse of the textile world’s rapid transformation. The conference will bring together over 500 high-level representatives from the entire textile value chain, spanning the globe. These leaders, hailing from China and beyond, will share insights and expertise that span the entire textile spectrum, from fibers to retail.

At the heart of the conference’s discussions lies a crucial question: How is the textile industry adapting to the megatrends of digitalization and circularity? Industry experts and academia will illuminate this path, helping attendees navigate the evolving landscape by understanding its dynamics, identifying risks, and seizing opportunities.

Key sessions will delve into pivotal topics, including the fiber market’s response to the surging demand for recycled fibers, strategies for reducing the carbon footprint in textile production, the role of groundbreaking technologies in accelerating the industry’s shift towards circular practices, and the far-reaching impact of upcoming regulations on global production.

As an integral part of the conference, the ITMF will once again celebrate innovation and sustainability with the presentation of the 2023 ITMF Start-up, Sustainability, and Innovation Awards. These accolades recognize trailblazers who are shaping the industry’s future through pioneering ideas and sustainable practices.

But the 2023 ITMF Annual Conference is just one piece of a textile extravaganza unfolding in Keqiao. Leading up to the main event, the 10th Belt & Road Textile Conference 2023 (November 2-3) will set the stage for discussions on international cooperation and textile development. Following the main conference, the 6th World Textile Merchandising Conference (WTMC) 2023 (November 5-6) will offer further insights into global textile marketing and trade.

Keqiao, a hub of textile innovation, is the ideal backdrop for these critical discussions. As the textile industry faces unprecedented challenges and opportunities, the 2023 ITMF Annual Conference promises to be a beacon of knowledge, networking, and inspiration for all those involved in the journey from fibers to fashion.
