Conference date and venue

Introducing the First Edition of the World Congress on Textile Coating (WCTC21),
18-19 February 2021

The organisers of the successful and long-running conference series Textile Coating and Laminating (TCL) are pleased to announce its expansion and refocus as the World Congress on Textile Coating (WCTC21). The event will debut in Berlin on 18-19 February 2021.

In the modern textile industry, coating, surface modification and laminating are the key means to tailor textiles and nonwovens to create functional products for specific, often high-performance, applications. The expanded event will take the necessary wide perspective on all these processes.

Unlike other events, it will not be an academic research-based meeting, but a practical, industry-focussed conference, and participants will be encouraged to share real-world problems with the assembled experts and their fellow attendees in the dedicated discussion forums.

With major speakers from around the world, looking at novel applications and processes of textile coating from a practical industry perspective, WCTC promises to be dynamic and lively, attracting delegates from companies on every continent.

The conference venue is the 4-star Novotel Berlin Am Tiergarten hotel, in Berlin, Germany. The hotel is located in the centre of the capital by the Tiergarten S-Bahn station. A variety of attractions and shopping centres are close by, including the zoo and the Kudamm with the Memorial Church. The hotel's central location makes it ideal for exploring historical Berlin and the Brandenburg Gate. Tegel Airport is a 15 minute drive away.
