Sessions in the C2C track will cover concept and design insights; a glimpse at what’s new—color, print and product development; supply chain trends today and tomorrow; and consumer interests—product performance and innovation for the retail marketplace. The Chemical Applications track will address sustainability, coloration, advances in application technology, and also include the Herman and Myrtle Goldstein Student Paper Competition. Presentations in the Materials track will include protective textiles, medical textiles, and innovative technologies.
