2 - 4 October 2023

    The XI edition of the conference on Textile Composites and Inflatable Structures (STRUCTURAL MEMBRANES 2023) will be organised on 02-04 October 2023 in Valencia. The previous conferences of these series were held in Barcelona (2003, 2007, 2011, 2015, 2019, in conjunction with the conference commemorating the 60th anniversary of the International Association for Shell and Space Structures (IASS)), Stuttgart (2005, 2009) and Munich (2013, 2017). The last edition of the Structural Membranes conference as virtual event on September 13-14, 2021.

    The objectives of Structural Membranes 2023 are to collect and disseminate state-of-the-art research and technology for design, analysis, construction and maintenance of textile and inflatable structures. The conference will address both the theoretical bases for structural analysis and the numerical algorithms necessary for efficient and robust computer implementation. A significant part of the conference will be devoted to discuss advances in new textile composites for applications in membrane and inflatable structures in the building and construction sectors, as well as in innovative design, construction and maintenance procedures.

    Structural Membranes 2023 aims to be a forum for discussing recent progress and identifying future research directions in the field of textile composites and inflatable structures.

  • 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
