Event Partner - to be announced

Ecotextile News magazine is the environmental magazine for the global textile and clothing supply chain and is published six times per year as a magazine delivered direct to your door. This is supplemented by daily news on its web-site and weekly e-news bulletins delivered to over 20,000 signed up members. Ecotextile News is a market leader in information delivery and was the very first B2B textile magazine to develop a cross-platform mobile news app.

Read by the world's leading clothing brands and retailers and the most forward-thinking textile manufacturers and industry innovators, Ecotextile News was established by MCL News & Media in 2006. MCL News & Media owns the Planet Textiles brand.

The Sustainable Apparel Coalition is the apparel, footwear and home textile industry’s foremost alliance for sustainable production.

The Coalition’s main focus is on building the Higg Index, a standardised supply chain measurement tool for all industry participants to understand the environmental and social and labour impacts of making and selling their products and services.

By measuring sustainability performance, the industry can address inefficiencies, resolve damaging practices, and achieve the environmental and social transparency that consumers are starting to demand. By joining forces in a Coalition, we can address the urgent, systemic challenges that are impossible to change alone.

ITMA is the trendsetting textile and garment technology platform where the industry converges every four years to explore fresh ideas, effective solutions and collaborative partnerships for business growth.
