Join us at ACI’s Bio-based Textiles in Clothing: Europe 2025, exploring the latest advancements in sustainable clothing made from renewable resources. Taking place on the 15th & 16th January in Helsinki, just after the EU’s pivotal Textile EPR Directive on 1 January 2025, this event promises a deep dive into the world of bio-based textiles, examining how plants, microbes, and other novel organic feedstock are being revolutionised into sustainable, stylish garments.

The 2-day conference will connect the key stakeholders together from Bio-based Textile Manufacturers, Bio-based Feedstock Suppliers, Brand Owners, Textile Recyclers, Mechanical and Digital Technology Providers, Chemical and Sustainability Associations, Senior Chemical Consultants and Research Academics.

At the event we strive not only to bring you to the same location at the same time as your customers/suppliers/peers, we strive to ensure you meet face-to-face with each and every one of your target contacts and to provide you with the time you need to have multiple unhurried conversations with them and build a lasting business relationship:

•  A pre-event informal introduction the evening before the conference
•  A minimum of five hours’ networking built into the two day conference agenda
•  A networking grid which enables you to make your target contacts aware you are looking for them
•  The option to join either social drinks or dinner during the evening of Day One
•  ACI’s on-site team will assist you in locating your hard-to-find target contacts & make face-to-face introductions

Of course, if there is anybody you are unable to meet over the two days, ACI’s event team will do their best to initiate contact after the event.
