AATCC IC&E Co-Location Spurs ATME-I® 2004 Dyeing, Printing, Finishing Participation

The American Textile Machinery Association, Falls Church, Va., and Greenville-based Textile Hall Corp., co-sponsors of the American Textile Machinery Exhibition-International® (ATME-I®) 2004, report that its co-location with the Research Triangle Park, N.C.-based American Association of Textile Chemists & Colorists' (AATCC's) International Conference & Exhibition (IC&E) has prompted increased participation at ATME-I by dyeing, finishing and printing machinery and equipment suppliers.

As of Textile World 's press time, 431 companies from 25 countries have registered as exhibitors at ATME-I 2004, to be held Sept. 13-17 at the Palmetto Expo Center in Greenville. Of these companies, 79 are first-time exhibitors.

"The ability to make and deliver quick style changes to the US marketplace has kept the US dyeing, printing and finishing industry strong despite a downturn in other areas," said Butler Mullins, ATME-I director. "We are seeing considerable exhibitor interest from manufacturers and suppliers to those textile manufacturing processes."

Organized since 1973 as two events - one targeted to the fibers, yarn and nonwovens sectors of the textile industry, as well as plant engineering and maintenance; and one to the weaving, knitting, dyeing, printing and finishing sectors - ATME-I this year will bring all sectors of the industry together at one event. This year's show also will present the Knitted Arts Exhibition-Fabric, sponsored by the Boston-based National Textile Association and AATCC's IC&E.

IC&E activities also will include technical and Consumer 2 Consumer educational programs such as roundtable discussions covering a range of topics including color communication, dyeing, finishing, flammability, information management, international business, preparation and product improvement.

AATCC also will host an opening night street festival, a student textile bowl, an awards banquet and its annual AATCC Foundation golf outing.
