Leading the way in specialty fabrics
Formerly known as IFAI Expo Americas, IFAI Specialty Fabrics Expo aligns with the industry’s flagship publication, Specialty Fabrics Review, and strategically focuses on the needs of the traditional market segments.
The growth and demand for advanced textile applications led to IFAI’s establishment of the Advanced Textiles Expo, to meet the needs of the top level of the industry supply chain and companies that supply roll goods, material and other products or services for advanced applications.

The broadest marketplace connecting thousands of attendees with more than 400 exhibitors
Global connections and networking through events, education and meetings
Comprehensive programming to generate ideas, provide solutions and promote business growth
