Texprocess Americas 2023

Recapping a Productive & Successful Week in Atlanta

Techtextil North America and Texprocess Americas took place May 10-12, 2023 in Atlanta, Georgia. With over 350 exhibitors from 30 countries and thousands of attendees representing the entire textile supply chain, the unified edition of Techtextil North America and Texprocess Americas created a unique environment for business development, where new innovations, products, and technologies were on full display for attendees and exhibitors. The 2023 edition also offered more features than ever before, including the lauded Symposium sessions, Tech Talks, Tech Zone, and Career and Training Center, as well as the first-ever Innovation Awards in the Americas for technical textiles, nonwovens, and sewn product industries.  

The three-day co-located exhibitions highlighted advancements and industry trends in textile design and manufacturing, supply chain optimization, workforce development, and more. Throughout the three days, visitors were able to see products up close, watch live demonstrations, attend over 40 educational sessions, and meet with exhibitors providing the latest solutions across the supply chain. Exhibitors were also able to take advantage of the shared exhibit hall, sourcing suppliers and strategic partners for their own businesses.
