Euratex develops strategy


The 9th edition of Euratex was held in Belgium, November 9 and 10, 2021. The event brought together over 250 apparel and textile industry professionals, from across Europe and beyond. The theme ‘A new paradigm for the European Textiles & Apparel Industry’, focused on the impact of Covid 19 and the role of the European Union in boosting the competitiveness of the industry. The plenary panel discussion, with representatives from fibers, apparel, luxury brands, and textile machines, confirmed the need to develop a common strategy across the supply chain.

Nine different workshops focused on specific aspects on that EU strategy: how to manage textile waste, the importance of traceability, the impact of the new chemical strategy, the need for new skills, relations with Turkey and the global trade dimension, EU support programs. Each workshop allowed participants to share their perspective and proposals. The convention was also an opportunity to get together again, after nearly two years of virtual dialogue. There was intense networking. With so many topics on the table, so many positive ideas circulating, the convention delivered on its purpose to bring the entire industry together and move forward with confidence. It also gave a boost to Euratex’s work in promoting the European textile and apparel industry. This was held back-to-back with the IAF World Fashion Convention.
