The twin event Expo Hightex (EH) and ADVANCED WORKWEAR CANADA (AWC) is a flagship for the technical textiles, geosynthetics and advanced materials industry in Quebec and Canada. March 18, 19 and 20, 2014, at the Montréal Science Center.
Its immense success over the years is a just reflection of CTT Group’s commitment to accompany its network of partners and textile cluster members “from innovation to commercialization.”
Every year, leaders of innovative textile product companies attend the event in great numbers to establish and consolidate commercial ties and strengthen their knowledge of new technology and innovative products.
Two major areas of activity are planned for 2014: an EXHIBITION AND NETWORKING area focused on business development and a CONFERENCE AND TRAINING area focused on knowledge development.
This edition will mark EXPO HIGHTEX’s 13th anniversary, and for the FIRST time the event will take place over three days, on March 18, 19 and 20. Appropriately, it will be held at a symbol of technical excellence, the Montréal Science Center, and for the first time this year too Expo Hightex will be offering three specialized technical training sessions to Quebec manufacturers, partners and buyers.
- March 18 AM: Introduction to Geosynthetics
- March 18 PM: Human Ecological Textiles and Clothing: From Manufacturing to Certification
- March 20 AM: Workwear and Personal Protective Equipment
Please note that these 4 technical training will be provided only in french, english sessions are going to be organized later this year upon requests.
Over the three days, we expect 600 visitors, 33 exhibitors and 22 speakers and technical trainers. The exhibition and conferences will take place on March 19 and 20 only.
