Next Textile 2010: The future meets in Borås
Next Textile Borås is a unique venture by the City of Borås where development and opportunities in textiles are given full focus for two days – a new exciting chapter in the history of the entrepreneurially strong region. The goal is ambitious; Swedish regions Borås and Sjuhärad will be the leading destinations for national and international interests within textile and design.

”We want to create the best possible conditions for everyone in the textile industry generate really good business; make new contacts, find new markets and customers, hear about the latest trends, or just be inspired by some of the leading entrepreneurs and innovators in the world. Next Textile Borås offers something for everyone – whether you are a local manufacturer, a design student from India or a wool producer from Australia”, says Ulrik Nilsson, chairman of the city executive board of Borås.

Next Textile Borås is arranged for 24-25 May. Conferences, company visits, textile award ceremony and matchmaking are on the agenda. This event will be a regular element in positioning Borås as the textile capital.
