From the show’s opening on day one, the excitement to meet, in-person, with industry peers and learn about the latest innovations could be felt throughout the Georgia World Congress Center.
“After such a long hiatus, it was really wonderful to finally hold these events together under one roof, “said Kristy Meade, Vice President of Technical Textiles & Technology Shows.
“COVID-19 proved to be a challenge for everyone, but it is clear that these industries are resilient overall, and more motivated than ever to continue to push for innovation and advancement. We’re happy to be able to provide a platform for them to do so,” she said.
Exhibitors & Products
The co-location of Techtextil North America and Texprocess Americas is known for creating the largest event in the Americas for the sourcing of materials, machinery and equipment, technology, services, and more representing the entire technical textiles, nonwovens and sewn products industries.
This year, the joint exhibit hall brought together hundreds of exhibiting companies from across the textile industry spectrum, showing the latest in textile research and development, raw materials, advanced textile production, processing, manufacturing technology, sustainability and more.
Throughout the three days, visitors were able to see products up-close, watch live demonstrations, and meet with exhibitors providing the latest solutions across the supply chain. Exhibitors were also able to take advantage of the shared exhibit hall, sourcing suppliers and strategic partners for their own businesses:
“We've had such a great time at Techtextil North America, being able to not only meet with our customers, but also finding great equipment suppliers as well,” said Megan Hartford of MidMountain Materials.
Educational Program 2022
Visitors and exhibitors alike attended sessions addressing today’s hottest topics in textile innovation and sewn products manufacturing, with access to 16 paid symposium sessions and over 20 complimentary sessions on the show floor. Sessions ranging from Automaton and Robotics in Sewing to Military and Protective Textiles brought leaders from across industries to learn about the latest innovations, technologies and trends.
“We attend the symposiums every year and there is always something new to learn, not only from the speakers but also the questions asked during the sessions. The show is a very good experience, we will continue to attend because it is always going to be very helpful.”
- Edwin Rosado, Visitor, Fruit of the Loom

- Michael Rhoades, Visitor, MSA Safety
“I think these have been very good presentations by important people in the areas of smart textiles and high performance fibers.

- Guowen Song, Visitor and Speaker, Iowa State University

- Shini Arora, Visitor, Amazon
“I'm thrilled to be at Texprocess (Americas) because innovation in manufacturing and textiles is where my focus is.
