The 10th edition of Planet Textiles 2019 will focus on sustainable innovation and technology. The exhibition, to be held on June 22, 2019 at the Fira Barcelona Exhibition Conference Centre, is expected to attract up to 120,000 visitors from 147 countries. First launched in 2009 in Hong Kong, Planet Textiles is expected to be a seminal event where apparel retailers, brands and buyers can network with an unrivalled gathering of experts from the textile manufacturing sector.
Delegates to Planet Textiles will also get special discounted access to ITMA where they can view the latest in textile production technology in action. A limited number of Planet Textile curated tours of ITMA will be available so that delegates can see new innovative technology with a positive environmental impact.
Planet Textiles is being supported once again by the Sustainable Apparel Coalition, and will detail disruptive new textile technology, expert insight from leading industry CEOs, retail and apparel brands and NGOs involved in the environmental space.
Special sessions at Planet Textiles 2019 will feature the ZDHC Foundation and Fashion for Good, along with breakout sessions on what denim and textile production will look like in the second half of the 21st Century and how to reduce their environmental impact.
