Dornbirn Global Fiber Congress

Austria, Dornbirn

As generator of ideas and networks, the 58th Dornbirn-GFC would especially like to offer the platform to young companies by organizing a “Startup” Event in cooperation with PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), a worldwide and internationally operating auditor and consulting firm. Because of being the world’s biggest Fiber Innovation Congress, the Dornbirn-GFC has been an inherent part in the calendar of about 700 participants of more than 35 nations.

Last year over 700 international participants (70% from Europe, 30% from Asia and America) utilized the fiber innovation congress in Dornbirn as networking platform and 50 new companies were welcomed to the congress. 

The “Creme de la Creme” of the fiber industry as well as international global players of the entire value chain will be present at the 58th Dornbirn-GFC. This year, the congress is entirely dedicated to the topics of sustainability and digitalization. Thus, the top-class lead sponsor Lenzing Group, Indorama Ventures and Märkische Faser as well as PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), Microsoft and Palo Alto Networks will be expected as important partners. 

More than 100 expert lectures concentrate on the following key themes: 

  • Fiber innovations  
  • Circular economy and recycling
  • Digitalization and smart textiles
  • Surface modification and additives 
  • Sports and leisure wear 
  • Nonwovens and technical textiles 

This event will take place on 11-13 September 2019 in Dornbirn, Austria.
