Techtextil North America Recognized in Fastest 50 for 2017 Event

Mar 19, 2018

Techtextil North America has been named one of Trade Show Executive’s 50 Fastest Growing shows of 2017

The fourteenth edition of the North American event dedicated to technical textiles and nonwovens is one of the few shows included in all three categories: net square feet of paid exhibit space, number of exhibiting companies and total attendance.

Techtextil North America was held at McCormick Place - Lakeside Center in Chicago, Illinois alongside co-located show JEC Americas.  With exhibitors from around the world, the event brought decision makers from all of the major industries that touch technical textiles, nonwovens, and composites together in one place to experience the latest in innovation.

“It is an honor to be recognized for our hard work and commitment to the industries we serve,” said Kristy Meade, Show Director. “We have a wonderful network of exhibitors and industry partners who have helped us make this show what it is today, and we look forward to continued growth and success together.”

Recipients of the 2017 Fastest 50 will be honored at Tradeshow Executive’s Fastest 50 Awards & Summit, June 13 - 15 in Chicago, Illinois.

Techtextil North America will return to Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center from May 22 - 24, 2018 and will once again be co-located with Texprocess Americas. The just-announced 2019 edition will be held in Raleigh, February 26 - 28.
