Due to continuing concerns regarding the coronavirus and feedback from conference participants, the Industrial Fabrics Association International (IFAI) has decided to transform the Women in Textiles Summit 2021 into a virtual event taking place the afternoon of Thursday, March 4, and the morning of Friday, March 5. The timing will mimic an in-person show, immersing attendees for several hours, allowing time for reflection overnight, with additional immersion and reconnection the following morning.
The event will take place on the virtual platform, Remo, which is easy and fun to use. The new IFAI member price for the virtual event is $69, and it is $169 for nonmembers. IFAI staff and committee members are currently working on a modified schedule, which will be released in the coming weeks.
The Women in Textiles Summit does plan to return, in-person, to Château Élan Winery & Resort in 2022. For more information and to register for the Women in Textiles Summit 2021 virtual event, visit www.ifai.com/women/.
