Man-Made Fibers

Dornbirn Congress at its 52nd edition


The Dornbirn-MFC will take place for the 52nd time and has become the European/American lead event in the field of man-made fibers. The congress, that will take place from 11th to the 13th September, is geared towards future themes like sustainability, innovation but also communication with the upcoming generations and has been very positively accepted and supported by the fiber-making and processing community. Coordinated world-wide activities of the program committee along with profound contacts to academic/research institutions and roof organisations have created an increasing interest in this event. The new preliminary program with more than 100 lectures can be found on the webisite

In parallel to the 52nd Dornbirn-MFC, CIRFS/Brussels, the European Man-made Fibers Association, and IVC/Frankfurt, representative of major man-made fibers manufacturers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland will have meetings in Dornbirn. High ranking delegations including speakers are expected from: AFMA – American Fiber Manufacturers Association, JCFA – Japan Chemical Fibers Association and KOFOTI – Korean Federation of Textile Industries.

In connection with Dornbirn-MFC (from 11th to 13th of September) ITMF/International Textile Manufacturers Federation will hold its annual conference from 8th to 10th of September in Bregenz.
