• Techtextil and Texprocess 2024

    23 - 26 April 2024

    The planning for Techtextil and Texprocess from 23 to 26 April 2024 is off to a promising start.

    Exhibitors from over 40 countries have already registered to take part. This also includes exhibitors who have decided not to participate in 2022.

    The coming trade fair editions will revolve around the theme of sustainability and present future-oriented solutions for the textile industry.

    Start-ups are given an high-visibility platform at the world's leading trade fairs to find business partners. Techtextil and Texprocess reflect the innovative power of technical textiles, textile manufacturing and processing technologies. This is demonstrated by a broad spectrum of exhibitor presentations and a comprehensive complementary programme, including the Techtextil or Texprocess Innovation Awards.


  • Textile Roofs Workshop 2024

    28 - 30 April 2024

    26th edition!

    These workshops are concerned with the design of architectural membrane roof structures. For most people such roofs are typified by world famous sports stadia and temporary exposition structures.  Although prestigious buildings of this type continue to utilise tensile roofing systems, the scope of application has widened considerably over the past decade. Today tensile roofs are routinely used in shopping centres, corporate headquarters, leisure centres, zoos, schools and even factories.  With a combination of visually dramatic curvilinear form, and economic efficiency, such architectural solutions represent an attractive option for many situations.

    The textile roof industry continues to grow world-wide. In order to encourage this development, workshops on the Design and Realisation of Textile Roofs have been held in for more than 25 years. Due to their practical emphasis and unique format, these events have proven increasingly popular.

    The participants of the previous events have come from a wide range of backgrounds ranging from established experts to novice students. This rich-mix appears to form part of the popularity of the workshops.

    The main objectives of this workshop are to provide fundamental information, as well as presenting the state-of-the-art in textile roof engineering. Above all, the workshop aims to provide practical answers to real-world questions

  • VIII Latin American Tensile structure Symposium

    14 - 16 October 2024

    The VIII Latin American Tensile structure Symposium will take place in Buenos Aires between the 14th and 16th October 2024.


    Faculty of Architecture, Design and Urbanism of the University of Buenos Aires (FADU UBA) / Faculty of Architecture of the Interamerican Open University (UAI). The management is being resolved between WAGG, the Vice dean of the FADU Arq. Walter Gómez Diz, and the dean of the UAI Arq. Glory Ten.

    A series of activities

    Among its 2024 activities, FADU has two events that bring together a large audience: academic, professional, and students, and that they want to organize together with VIII Latin American Tensile structure Symposium in the same October week:

    • ARQUISUR, Congress of the Association of Public Schools and Faculties of Architecture of South America, which will take place between 16th and 18th October where academics and professionals are the main attendants.
    • CRETA, Regional Congress of Technology in Architecture that will take place between 15th and 17th October, where students, teachers and professionals are the main attendants.

    For this reason, VIII Latin American Tensile structure Symposium will take place between 14th and 16th October, within the same week. Additionally, the IMS Bauhaus will launch an intensive course of tensile structures after SLTE VIII on 17th and 18th October that will be taught at the same University. This combination of events proposes a synergy of attendance related to technologies applied to architecture where VIII Latin American Tensile structure Symposium will focus on Tenso structures and their contribution to sustainable architecture.


    Topics related to design, project, calculation, engineering, manufacturing and specific assembly of technology will be covered, as well as its relationship with technical and environmental aspects that involve them in the concerns of current architecture. The event will take place over 3 days, with a traditional set of magistral keynote presentations in the morning with national and international guests, and presentations proposed by the participants during the afternoon, adding parallel workshops, presentations by sponsoring companies and visits to tensile structures in Buenos Aires.


    For their feasibility, the Tensile structures symposiums require the contribution of those companies that are part of the provision of raw material, software, tools, engineering and all those activities that add to technology. For those companies interested, we attach the link to the Symposium website, where we have different SPONSORSHIP categories, which will offer different advertising alternatives to collaborate with the realization of the event, and some additional options.
