The show will feature 177 exhibitors from 24 countries and attracts over 2,000 visitors twice each year.

LYCRA® SPORT TECHNOLOGY TAKES CENTER STAGE PERFORMANCE DAYS

Because Comfort and Performance Matter™

A highlight of the exhibit will be concept garments and commercially available fabric samples made with LYCRA® SPORT technology. Fabrics featuring LYCRA® SPORT technology are certified as having met clearly defined Power-Comfort-Energy (PCE™) index criteria. This revolutionary stretch fabric innovation enables designers to choose fabrics that have been customized to meet the performance parameters of a particular sport, and gives consumers the targeted support they desire to help optimize their performance. This next generation innovation will also be promoted by key INVISTA mill customers exhibiting at the fair.
