SMART TEXTILES & HIGHPERFORMANCE MATERIALS

The industry is demanding components that are increasingly lighter, but extremely powerful at the same time. Research and industry are vying for new lightweight construction concepts for use in a wide range of economic sectors. And weight reduction and energy efficiency are paramount. 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 innovative composites and intelligent textile structures, 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 forum, organised by the office of economic development, initiates targeted personal business contacts that often lead to exciting development projects.

  • LOCATIONAL ADVANTAGE
    As the “Silicon Valley for textiles” in the four-country region, the business hub of Vorarlberg is an ideal venue for SALTEX. The value chain consists of many highly specialised companies from research and industry. And the agenda offers close cooperation within the immediate vicinity and on the international level.

  • SALTEX AND THE DORNBIRN MAN-MADE FIBRES CONGRESS – A STRONG TEAM
    SALTEX and the Man-made Fibres Congress have come together in perfect timing! Holding the events simultaneously promotes exciting international network possibilities and synergies, which can be expanded to benefit both events.
