I was also impressed by the level of support that the industry supplies to what was a small event. To attract participation not only from Quebec and Ontario, but as far away as Alberta is truly impressive.

I learned a valuable lesson from this event, that is, researchers must connect their research project to industrial production or daily application. Otherwise, the research is meaningless. Finally, I am now more aware of the development trends of the Canadian textile industry; this will help me as I consider career options.

of the textiles segments are currently facing.
