Textile Exchange Call for Breakout Presentations 

Submission period: February 19- March 20, 2020 @ 11:59pm PST
After March 20, we are unable to accept any other proposals for the 2020 conference.
Accepted and Declined submissions will be notified by May 1.

Textile Exchange has a limited number of Breakout Session slots available at our 2020 Textile Sustainability Conference in Dublin, Ireland that takes place on November 3-6, 2020. We strive to provide conference attendees with the most interesting, timely and relevant content that is aligned with our 2030 Climate+ Strategywhich has a goal of 35-45% reduced CO2 emissions from textile fiber and material production by 2030. We will evaluate breakout session proposals against our 2030 Climate+ strategy and our 2020 conference theme: Climate Action Now- Impact through Partnership.

All breakout sessions must be for educational purposes to drive action and to meet the goals of the Textile Sustainability Conference. You may assume that Breakout Sessions will be between 1-1.5 hours in duration, although this may change as we finalize the agenda. Please note that sales pitches or marketing in any form is not permitted at the Textile Sustainability Conference and will not be accepted by our reviewing team. Preference will be given to Textile Exchange members and partners. 

We are also offering a spotlight session (5-10 min long) where you have the opportunity to showcase your project/initiative in the exhibit area. All spotlight submissions will be reviewed and approved by Textile Exchange.
