The organizers of Techtextil North America and Texprocess Americas have announced that the co-located events have been postponed beyond 2020.
“We have been monitoring the global spread of COVID-19 that began earlier this year, and to uphold our commitment to the industry, we postponed [the events] to October 1-3, 2020. However, as coronavirus cases in the U.S continue to rise, we are once again faced with the difficult decision of whether or not to proceed as planned,” Kristy Meade, group show director, said in a letter to exhibitors Friday. “Several outside factors, including travel restrictions, quarantine mandates and other governmental regulations across the globe have made moving forward with an in-person event impossible at this time.”
The next edition of Techtextil North America will take place August 23-25, 2021, in Raleigh, N.C. The next edition of Texprocess America will take place May 17-19, 2022, in Atlanta, and will be co-located with the 2022 edition of Techtextil North America.
