To mark the International Year of Natural Fibres, Messe Frankfurt will hold a Natural Fibre Congress during Techtextil, International Trade Fair for Technical Textiles and Nonwovens, which will be held in Frankfurt, Germany June 16-18, 2009. The aim of the congress is, inter alia, to bring natural fibres into closer contact with technical applications and to show trade visitors the benefits of natural fibres for the technical textiles sector. Anyone wanting to contribute to the Natural Fibres Congress on June 17-18 is cordially invited to submit a lecture proposal. The closing date for receipt of proposals is February 27.

The congress will focus on the function of natural fibres to obtain new knowledge about their innovative use in areas of application such as mobility and architecture and construction, and thus generate new impulses for the use of natural fibres in the technical field.
