Change is coming, but what form will it take and how should textile companies engage?

Industry 4.0, the new industrial revolution, has arrived at the gates of the Textile Industry. Should we extend it a welcome as the start of a dynamic new world, or resist it as a dangerous and unpredictable threat? Must we, indeed, embrace it with enthusiasm if we are to remain relevant in the new industrial order? And what will it mean for our businesses, partnerships, manufacturing infrastructure and supply chain processes?

The Textile 4.0 Conference is the first professional event dedicated to the realities of Industry 4.0 in the Textile Industry. It will shed light on the many developments that are happening even now and provide expert insights into what the future might hold for business and investment decision makers throughout the Textile value chain.

Over two days we will deliver presentations from leading experts on the new, inspiring services and revenue opportunities that can be leveraged using IoT and best practices to enable smart manufacturing. Case study led discussions will help manufacturers understand and build their own business case for investments in pursuit of Industry 4.0 goals.
