The Fabric Year 2017

Already the first celebration of "The Fabric Year" in 2016 attracted an international audience to Albstadt, Germany. The Groz-Beckert event provided not only a stage for innovative exchange but also invited to a number of expert lectures from the textile environment. A special highlight was Groz-Beckert's presentation of the results of a survey on global fabric production. Analyses and market data from the sectors of yarn and textile fabric production gave a comprehensive and interesting overview of the textile industry. Combining data from different sources, the report gave completely new and exclusive insights from various angles.

Considering the success of the premiere event and the many positive answers to "The Fabric Year 2017", we are all the more sorry that this year's event had to be cancelled as the manager and primarily responsible speaker of the "Fabric Year" cannot participate due to health reasons.

To share the most important contents of "The Fabric Year 2017" with you all the same, we prepared a handout for you to download. Furthermore, we have enriched the country profiles by contributions from industry experts. Summaries of their interviews are also available in the download section.

In spite of the current circumstances, we would naturally like to hold on to this series of events and would be pleased to welcome you next year to our "Fabric Year 2018".

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at gb-exhibition@groz-beckert.com
