SAVE THE DATE! AATCC Textile Discovery Summit



RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., USA, March 3, 2021—The AATCC International Conference is undergoing some exciting changes in 2021, including a new name: AATCC Textile Discovery Summit!


Although the name is changing, this event will continue to serve as a valuable opportunity for the textile community to connect, share, and learn. This “must attend” industry event will be held November 16-18 at the Sheraton Imperial in Durham, North Carolina.


To provide a consolidated schedule and less travel, the Textile Discovery Summit will be held immediately following AATCC Fall research committee meetings, which are scheduled for November 15-16, 2021, at the Sheraton Imperial.


As well as the educational presentations, this event also includes networking receptions, interactive breakout sessions, special onsite activities and resources, an exhibitor showroom, a poster session, the Herman & Myrtle Goldstein Graduate Student Paper Competition, and the Awards Luncheon, where AATCC’s most prestigious awards will be presented. All are welcome!


Tabletop exhibits and sponsorships are available to share news about products, services, and processes directly with attendees. New offerings and opportunities have been added to this year’s exhibitor and sponsorship package. For anyone interested in learning more, please request a 2021 Textile Discovery Summit Exhibitor & Sponsor Packet from Angela Jabara at


Please save the date and plan on joining AATCC and the textile community in celebrating 100 years of AATCC and the first annual Textile Discovery Summit this November 16-18, 2021!
