Southern Textile Research Conference

The STRC Has a New Keynote Speaker!

Diana Wyman is the new Executive Vice President for AATCC, and she has generously volunteered to be the Keynote Speaker for the 2019 STRC. Since this will be Diana’s first time at STRC, this will be a chance to welcome her in her new role at AATCC! Diana will start the conference with her presentation, “Testing and Standards for a Global Textile Industry”. Please come, one and all!

As a reminder, the deadline for booking rooms for the special STRC rate at the Hilton Myrtle Beach is August 15. The Hilton Beach has added an online option for making room reservations this year, so please click this link for hotel room registration.

We are looking forward to the fantastic lineup of speakers; in addition to Diana Wyman as the Keynote Speaker, Dr. Roger Barker from TPACC at NCSU will make a presentation about TPACC’s capabilities for evaluating performance textiles. Three loyal STRC attendees, Preston Aldridge, Tim Heller and Don Alexander, will be making presentations at the STRC about unique and varied applications for textiles. Capping off the STRC will be David Clark from Huntsman and Katelyn Lee from Cotton Incorporated to make back-to-back presentations about digital printing technology.  Please see the conference agenda for details.

Please register now for the 2019 STRC. We hope to see you there!
