University of Georgia is going to partner Texprocess Americas next year!
Yes, Texprocess Americas announced recently that University of Georgia will be their official academic partner for the 2020 edition that will be held from 12 to 14 May.
The partnership will bring the experts from the University’s faculty and staff to provide the attendees at Texprocess with top educational opportunities.
What else! The visitors and exhibitors will get a hold on the latest researches done by the university. Besides, there will be a feature area on the floor that will provide the school’s undergraduate and graduate research programmes an exposure and platform to showcase their contributions to the industry.
The partnership between the two will also help facilitate future careers and strategic partnerships with the university’s administration.
Additionally, the event will serve as a platform for highlighting North America’s global innovations and industry developments for the textile industry.
Talking about the partnership, Kristy Meade, Show Director, Technical Shows: Textiles, Sewn Products, Equipment and Technology at Messe Frankfurt North America said, “We have been involved with UGA’s College of Family and Consumer Sciences through the Georgia Softgoods Education Foundation Board for several years. After the successful relationship between Techtextil North America and North Carolina State University (NCSU) in 2019, it was clear that Texprocess Americas and UGA could utilise the same model to help in providing advanced industry exposure to the next generation of textile industry professionals, promoting a healthy future for the industry as whole.”
“The Department of Textiles, Merchandising and Interiors focuses on the textile complexities in education and training along with placement of students in industry positions within the textile and sewn product industry. This partnership with Texprocess Americas 2020 is a natural fit for our programme as a platform to exchange information between industry and academia,” said Dr. Gajanan Bhat, TMI Department Head.
