While the last two years have been far from straightforward, the woven textile industry in the UK has continued to innovate and find new solutions to some of our sector’s biggest challenges.

UKFT, in partnership with The Weaving Group, has assembled a line-up of insightful speakers from machinery companies including Picanol, Karl Mayer, Staubli and Itema who will present their latest developments alongside sessions packed with topical and cutting-edge research discussion. They will be joined by a number of representatives from leading UK weavers, who will share their experiences of putting new technological advances into practice.

Book your place at the conference now to reconnect with industry colleagues and stay ahead of the issues that matter in our sector.



Please also join us on the same evening for the Conference Reception and Dinner which offers conference participants an excellent chance to network in a relaxed setting while continuing discussions about the day’s events.
