The location chosen for this event is right in the heart of the "Southern automotive industry" in Atlanta, Georgia, USA with major OEMs such as BMW, Mercedes, VW, Hyundai, Kia and Toyota along with numerous 1st and 2nd tier suppliers, fabric producers, research facilities and design centres located within 200 miles. On-going investment shows the importance of Atlanta and the Southern area to the industry.

Main areas of discussion will be: Markets - Interior textiles - Safety - Composites -Components and "working textiles".

While the main emphasis of this conference will be on automotive interiors; safety aspects, working textiles and composites will all feature as well as rapid advances in smart fabrics.
CAT13 will be a practical and intensive two-day meeting of senior managers from all parts of the industry worldwide, including suppliers, processors and end-users.
