Germans and textiles: a match fostered in Atlanta

Our Manager of Business Development, Carsten Jacobi, speaking at the 2012 Techtextil German Evening Reception

More than 30 German textile manufacturers, suppliers and researchers showcased their work at the 2012 Techtextil North American Expo this week, which ran at the Georgia World Congress center from April 24-26. After Wednesday’s festivities at the Expo, the GACC South hosted a German evening reception at the neighboring STATS restaurant and brought together around a hundred chamber members, friends, and expo attendees for barbeque and drinks.

The German pavilion at this year’s showcase was sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology in cooperation with the Association of the German Trade Fair Industry. The Expo as a whole had companies from all over the world, including some very far away from home, like China, India, Taiwan and Pakistan, just to name a few, and is the only trade show in the Americas dedicated to technical textiles and nonwovens.

GACC South employees helped work the reception, and have been at the Expo throughout the week meeting with companies from all around Germany.
