The theme of the 9th edition of EURATEX Convention is “A new Paradigm for the European Textiles and Clothing Industry”‘.
What does it mean?
The European T&C industry is facing 2 disruptive challenges:
- COVID19 pandemic, which has an immediate impact on consumer demand and companies’ profitability, but which has also disrupted global supply chains.
- EU policy agenda, which focuses on a “green and digital transition”, leading to an impressive set of new regulations, strategies and programmes, including a dedicated EU Textiles Strategy.
Both elements have a fundamental impact on our industry, putting our companies at a crossroad. The Antwerp convention will focus on these 2 challenges and suggest strategies how to respond to them successfully.
