COVID-19 Statement

Update July 29, 2021: As we plan for the 2021 Textile Sustainability Conference, Textile Exchange and its organizing partners are continually monitoring the global pandemic and the possible impacts on the conference. At present, we are making plans for a "hybrid" conference, combining the high-quality in-person conference experience that attendees have come to know and love with an interactive virtual offering for those that require the flexibility of attending online. 

Textile Exchange is speaking with the Convention Centre and they expect policy-makers to determine event and meeting guidelines by mid-September. Due to this and the recent increase of COVID cases around the globe, we have decided to postpone invoicing for registration fees until September 20 at the latest (originally planned to begin August 1). We will continue to monitor the global health impact of COVID-19. No later than September 20, we will weigh the information at hand and decide if meeting together in Dublin is advisable or if we will convene via alternative methods

We apologize for the delay; we know many of you are trying to make travel plans. We believe this delay is necessary to shed more light on the global health concern and what the impact will mean for our conference. Our ultimate goal is to make the best decision to deliver a high-quality event for both virtual and in-person attendees, and ensure a safe conference experience.
