COVID-19 Statement

As we plan for the 2021 Textile Sustainability Conference, Textile Exchange is continually monitoring the current situation of COVID-19 and the possible impacts it may have on the event. While we certainly hope that the pandemic is no longer a concern by that time, like everyone is doing – we are making contingency plans. The conference provides crucial learning and development opportunities that are key to accelerating the uptake of Preferred Fibers and Materials, which in turn is key to reducing climate impact by 2030. Textile Exchange will be offering a virtual solution in addition the in-person event in Dublin, Ireland. Check back often for details.

Dublin Weather

Ireland in November will have an average of 49°F to 54°F (9.5°C to 12°C). We highly recommend that you carry heavy, warm winter wear to stay warm, comfortable and safe. The weather outdoors can be heavily chilly, especially during the nights, and it is always recommended that you carry warming accessories like scarves, gloves or hats whenever you tread outside.

Conference Attire

Conference dress is business casual. Be sure to check the weather before you head to Dublin. This time of year can produce chilly and wet weather.

A coat check will be available next to the check-in desk in the entrance area of the Convention Center Dublin.
