52nd Dornbirn Man-Made Fibers Congress (DORNBIRN-MFC) - 11th To 13th Of September 2013

DORNBIRN, Austria — March 20, 2013 — The DORNBIRN-MFC will take place for the 52nd time and has become the European/American lead event in the field of man-made fibers. The congress is geared towards future themes like sustainability, innovation but also communication with the upcoming generations and has been very positively accepted and supported by the fiber-making and processing community. Coordinated world-wide activities of the program committee along with profound contacts to academic/research institutions and roof organisations have created an increasing interest in this event. Therefore it is possible to print a very detailed preliminary programme folder. The new preliminary program with more than 100 lectures can be found on our homepage www.dornbirn-mfc.com.

New Challenges Need New Solutions
The 52nd DORNBIRN-MFC, from 11th to 13th of September 2013 with more than 100 lectures and held by experts is offering an insight into the innovative power of man-made fibers, multiple fields of application and new approaches for effective solutions. Out of a large number of high-quality proposals we have tried to select for our visitors a representative cross-section of lectures illustrating the contribution of various stages of the processing chain to a final product.

Already in the opening session a lecture of the Institute for Management Research/Denkendorf (Germany) will deal with trends in the textile industry, new business models, development cooperation and the role of the man-made fibers industry in the processing chain of the future. A further lecture of the Sustainable Apparel Coalition/USA is dedicated to environmentally friendly garments from fiber to final product, including distribution.

The DORNBIRN MAN-MADE FIBERS CAMPUS offers again the possibility to young students and pupils from textile schools to present their works in a short presentation to an auditorium of experts.

The other topics run as follows:
-  Sustainable Solutions for the Fiber Industry (Bio-polymers and Bio-technology, Man-Made Fibers for Environmental Protection)-  Fiber Innovations (Filaments)
-  Unconventional Fiber Applications (Composites)
-  Finishing
-  Sports- and Functional Wear
-  Market Overview (Korea, India, Indonesia)

Details to individual lectures will be published on our homepage www.dornbirn-mfc.com.

Stronger presence of roof organisations and lead-industry
In parallel to the 52nd DORNBIRN-MFC, CIRFS/Brussels, the European Man-made Fibers Association, and IVC/Frankfurt, representative of major man-made fibers manufacturers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland will have meetings in Dornbirn. High ranking delegations including speakers are expected from: AFMA - American Fiber Manufacturers Association, JCFA - Japan Chemical Fibers Association and KOFOTI - Korean Federation of Textile Industries.

In connection with DORNBIRN-MFC (from 11th to 13th of September) ITMF/International Textile Manufacturers Federation will hold its annual conference from 8th to 10th of September in Bregenz. Some 200 decision takers from Fibers, Textiles, Auxiliaries and Textile Machinery will exchange their views about the further economic development. For the visitors of the ITMF Annual Conference a participation in DORNBIRN-MFC is foreseen. The idea behind is to encourage the exchange of views between users of cotton and man-made fibers.

LENZING AG will hold in parallel to DORNBIRN-MFC a workshop with app. 70 key customers from Near and Far East.  After coordination of the exhibition dates of DORNBIRN-MFC with PremiereVision / Texworld / Paris both events can be visited.
