Information about how our virtual conference will work.

Virtual Conference Announcement 

In light of on-going developments with COVID-19 and after thoughtful discussions with our Board of Directors and a few member companies, Textile Exchange has decided to move our 2020 Textile Sustainability Conference to a fully online, virtual experience that will take place on Monday, November 2- Friday, November 6. We believe this is the safest approach for the well-being of our global audience and we are excited that a virtual event makes it possible to broaden the learning opportunities and engagement with the industry at this time. 

Attendees will be able to participate virtually in vital conversations around climate change and transparency within the industry. Networking is a cornerstone of our annual event and attendees will be able to partake in interactive and engaging experiences through a new dynamic virtual conference platform. The virtual system we will use also has interactive exhibition features and includes plentiful opportunities for sponsorship exposure, all while attendees connect from the comfort and safety of their home or office. 

The conference agenda will now be spread out over the week of November 2nd with shorter 3-hour days to ensure that content is delivered in more digestible segments. Best of all, plenaries and breakout sessions will be easily accessible on-demand for conference attendees to view at their own convenience.
