Textile Testing Workshop for Specifiers*

September 17, 2024 - September 18, 2024

AATCC Technical Center
1 Davis Drive
Research Triangle Park, NC

*Specifiers are the designers, developers, product managers, technical designers, marketers, and entrepreneurs
who define the fit, function, look, and performance for the products that reach the market.

You may never set foot in a lab, but the claims you make, requirements you set,
or reports you approve of are important components of textile testing.


The AATCC Textile Testing  Workshop for Specifiers: Test Requests & Interpretation Simplified
will help you understand which tests are important for various product categories and performance claims—and which are required by law.

Learn the value of quality assurance and dependable testing for customer satisfaction and legal protection. Become adept at interpreting test results and making acceptance decisions. Develop a more efficient, effective supply chain. This AATCC workshop will equip textile, apparel, and home goods specifiers for requesting tests, communicating with labs, and interpreting results.
