Southern Textile Research Conference

The STRC Is Rescheduled

The STRC Planning Committee regrets to announce that the Conference has been postponed due to concerns regarding the COVID-19 virus. We waited as long as possible to make this decision; however, as the safety for our audience is paramount, the conference was rescheduled to September 12-14, 2021.

The theme for the 2021 STRC will remain the same: “Innovation for Wellness, Safety, & Sustainability”. We are recruiting speakers, so if you have any suggestions, please send them to Don Alexander, Program Chair, at

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to the Hilton Myrtle Beach Resort for allowing us to move the dates for the STRC. When you are making travel plans, please keep the Hilton and their family of hotels in mind. This will be a nice way to thank them for their efforts.

This was a very difficult decision for the STRC Planning Committee. We hope that the change in plans was not an inconvenience, and we remain optimistic for the coming year so that STRC 2021 will be a great event. Please keep safe! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact any of the STRC Planning Committee.
