Planet Textiles ’17 To Be Held In Bengaluru

The leading, independent, textile industry event, ‘Plant Textiles 2017’, annual summit on environmental issues for the global textile sector is once again co-organized by MCL News & Media and the Sustainable Apparel Coalition with support from leading organizations such as long-time partner Messe Frankfurt. The event will be held on May 24, 2017 at the JW Marriott Hotel, Bengaluru.

This year’s high-level event will tackle the crucial issue of textile wastewater pollution, chemical management and natural resource conservation including both energy and water use. These significant issues are becoming even more critical to the growth of India’s vast textile industry and remain under the microscope of apparel buyers that are considering sourcing from the region.

Planet Textiles 2017 will be part of a week-long series of events on textiles and sustainability in Bengaluru including the Sustainable Apparel Coalition’s annual member’s meeting. As in 2016, the vast majority of attendees at the SAC members meeting are expected to attend the Planet Textiles Summit, so delegate places are expected to sell out once again.

Due to the influential nature of Planet Textiles the event also draws interest from NGOs and policymakers. Last year senior representatives from the German, Danish, and Honduran Governments were present in Copenhagen, this included Juan Orlando Hernandez, the President of Honduras.
