Thank you to everyone who participated in the Smart Fabrics Virtual Summit 2020!  We look forward to seeing you all again in 2022!

Ideation to Commercialization

The 2020 Smart Fabrics Virtual Summit provided a forum for professionals in the industrial textiles industry to discuss, examine and understand how to bring a “smart” product to market.  

Known as “smart fabrics”, these high tech products have the ability to interact with their user or the environment. Reaching the market with a final product involves many steps from initial concept to market research to intellectual property protection to design and ultimate manufacturing by U.S. companies.  

The two day webinar event focused on: 

  1. Bringing together industries that need to collaborate in order for the smart fabrics industry to meet its full potential and accelerate its development by U.S. manufacturers
  2. Spurring original thinking among public and private sector organizations on how new and existing policies affect future smart fabrics products
  3. Providing resources, standards, best practices and a call-to-action that will support your organization’s work in the smart fabrics industry.
