SMART TEXTILES & HIGH-PERFORMANCE MATERIALS

The key technologies of the future: The interaction between man and machine, artificially-intelligent systems, wearables and digitized production processes will be key topics in the near future. Research and industry are developing new solutions, and intelligent textiles and high-performance materials offer various new process and application possibilities for both producers and consumers. SALTEX brings together innovative players from the sectors of high-performance materials und smart textiles for an interdisciplinary exchange of experiences. The goal is new synergies, from research to automation.

SALTEX – CATALYST FOR TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER

The two-day event will feature high-level, cross-industry dialogue on the future. International experts from various industries will introduce their products and technologies, and new and exciting application scenarios and transfer solutions will emerge when participants make the choice to look past their own horizons.

As a content- and community platform for smart textiles and high-performance materials, SALTEX links the entire value chain and creates fertile ground for the innovations of the future. Combining the top-level Smart Textiles Symposium with a trade exhibition creates the ideal framework for personal encounters and professional discussions. 

  • THE MINDSET OF THE FUTURE BRINGS PEOPLE TOGETHER
    No matter how different the products, business spheres, and areas of application may be, the mindset of the future connects speakers, exhibitors and industry visitors at SALTEX.

  • INNOVATIVE EVENT FORMAT
    SALTEX is both knowledge broker and network platform. The cooperation-exchange organized by Wirtschafts-Standort Vorarlberg GmbH (WISTO) initiates targeted personal business contacts, which form the basis for exciting development projects and cooperations.

  • LOCATIONAL ADVANTAGE
    Vorarlberg, a textiles stronghold in the Four-Country region of Austria, Germany, Switzerland and Liechtenstein, is an ideal venue for SALTEX. The complete existing value-added chain impresses with a multitude of highly-specialized industrial and research companies. Cross-border cooperation and international cooperation across industry boundaries are equally commonplace. This close connection allows the regions around Lake Constance to bundle their competencies and thus further develop their exceptional strength in this sector.

  • SALTEX AND THE DORNBIRN GFC – A STRONG CONNECTION
    For the coming year, SALTEX and the international Man-made Fibers Conference have agreed on an initial cooperation. The coordinated events will open up exciting international networking opportunities and synergies for exhibitors and visitors.
