IFAI Specialty Fabrics Expo 2016 and Advanced Textiles Conference & Trade Show

October 18-21, 2016

Venue: Charlotte, North Carolina

Experience the future at IFAI Specialty Fabrics Expo and the Advanced Textiles Conference & Trade Show. This three-day event will focus on connecting people, promoting products and advancing ideas with:

  • The broadest marketplace connecting thousands of attendees with more than 400 exhibitors
  • Global connections and networking through events, education and meetings
  • Comprehensive programming to generate ideas, provide solutions and promote business growth
  • Numerous experiences showcasing the breadth and innovation of the industry


Formerly known as IFAI Expo Americas, the newly coined IFAI Specialty Fabrics Expo better aligns with the industry’s flagship publication, Specialty Fabrics Review, and strategically focuses on the growing needs of traditional market segments. The growth and demand for advanced textile applications led to IFAI’s establishment of the Advanced Textiles Conference & Trade Show, held in tandem with Specialty Fabrics Expo.
