2018 Southern Textile Research Conference

The STRC is Rescheduled for October 7-9, 2018

The Southern Textile Research Conference (STRC) was postponed due to the intrusion of Hurricane Florence. The good news is that our meeting venue, The Hilton Myrtle Beach Resort, survived the hurricane and is now open.

If you could not make the originally-planned dates in September, we hope that the new dates for October 7-9 are open on your calendar. Please take advantage of our on-line conference registration and see the details for hotel room registration.

The Conference Theme is “Advances in Functional Finishes and Innovative Technologies”. The STRC will kick off on Sunday, October 7, with our Keynote Speaker, Will Duncan, Executive Director for SEAMS, who will present “Building the Bridge for a Stronger US Supply Chain”. Other topics will include wrinkle free finishing, thermal regulation technology, plasma technology, low add-on spray finishing, nanocellulose-based coatings, and antimicrobial testing. Details are shown on the conference agenda.
