Why is IFAI Expo going “Virtual”?
Due to the many challenges that the COVID-19 pandemic has presented, hosting an in-person IFAI Expo this November was made nearly impossible. By going virtual, IFAI Expo can still offer attendees and exhibitors the same great education content, networking opportunities and the tools to grow their business without risking their health and safety.
What is IFAI Expo?
For the past 99 years, the Industrial Fabrics Association International (IFAI) Expo has been regarded as the industrial fabric industry’s flagship show for commerce, networking and knowledge. As the premier industrial, specialty and advanced textiles event, IFAI Expo attracts thousands of industry stakeholders from around the world for four days of buying and selling, networking, learning and fun — all designed to help participants grow their bottom line. For the first time this year IFAI Expo will take place as an online only virtual event. The markets served at IFAI Expo are but not limited to:
- Specialty Fabrics
- Advanced Textiles
- Smart Fabrics
- Shade and Weather Protection
- Fabric Structures
Attendees of IFAI Expo are buyers and sellers who are eager to conduct business and learn about industry developments, share new ideas, discover trend data and explore opportunities. Join thousands of manufacturers, suppliers, research and develop professionals, craftsman, designers, fabricators, engineers, product developers and more remotely for an incredible virtual experience.
What about this Expo is unique?
IFAI Expo 2020 is the 100th anniversary of IFAI Expo. This year we celebrate 100 years of textile innovation, virtually! While this is a new way of hosting IFAI Expo, we are confident you will have a great experience.
