IFAI SYMPOSIUM ON SELECTED TECHNICAL FABRICS MARKETS

Fabric Graphics, Geosynthetics, Smart Fabrics, Construction/Building

(Offered free of charge by the INDEX 11 organisers to all registered visitors and exhibitors of INDEX 11)

Surviving in today’s technical fabrics market environment requires companies to have a thorough understanding of the market conditions they operate in now and in the future.

Insights into market size, growth, and trends is critical in order to make informed decisions about your business—whether it’s trying to invest in product development, deciding what markets to participate in, or figuring out how to set a strategy that works well within the market conditions existing today and in the future.

This symposium from IFAI (Industrial Fabrics Association International) focuses on overviews of four U.S. market segments: Fabric Graphics, Geosynthetics, Smart Fabrics, and Construction/Building. Each overview provides a comprehensive review of the U.S. market situation (size, growth rates, trends, etc.) to help you better understand the current conditions within each market so your company can take appropriate action in the future. 

This Workshop will be led by Mr. Jeffrey Rasmussen, Market Research Manager for IFAI.
 
Registration is mandatory. Please register on-line.
