ADD International Conference

Digital for the first time // Partner countries Portugal and Spain

With over 650 participants, the Aachen-Dresden-Denkendorf International Textile Conference is one of the most important textile conferences in Europe. This year it is again organized by the DITF. Already last year we had invited to Stuttgart, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic we had to postpone the conference.
Unfortunately, also this year the situation is too uncertain to plan a face-to-face event with an international audience. Therefore, the Aachen-Dresden-Denkendorf International Conference will take place digitally for the first time.

An online event also offers many advantages:
> Planning reliability for speakers and participants
> Industry meeting and exchange for experts from all over the world - independent of incidences and travel restrictions
> No travel costs

Approximately 60 presentations in three parallel sessions await you, and you can switch between them at any time.



  • High-performance fibers, fiber composites, functionalization, medical technology and textile engineering
  • New applications and markets
  • Green deal and circular economy
  • Digital transformation
  • Transfer session “From the idea to the practice”

Speakers from science, associations and companies such as adidas, Dornier, Myant (Canada) and DSM have been recruited. Networking will not be neglected either: There will be the opportunity to exchange ideas in discussion rooms or casually in the virtual foyer during every break. In addition, we will present about 100 scientific posters and there will be an exhibition where you can get in touch with companies. We look forward to your participation!


Would you like to get involved in the digital event? Whether with a digital exhibition stand, an advertisement in the Book of Abstracts or with one of the sponsoring packages: We will be happy to inform you!
