POSTPONED – World Textile Services Congress (WTSC)

June 18-19, 2020   •   Frankfurt, Germany
Due to the ongoing global impact of the COVID-19 virus, this event has been postponed.


The World Textile Services Congress (WTSC) provides a global forum for the exchange of best practices, trends and research critical to the growth of the nearly $125 billion (USD) international industry that supply, launder and maintain linens, uniforms, protective clothing, mats and mops, towels, wipes and other reusable textiles to businesses, retailers, hospitals and long-term care facilities, hotels, restaurants and other organizations that enhance their image and provide clean, safe environments for their employees and customers.

The previous WTSC in 2016 attracted nearly 90 executives from more than 50 laundry companies and 12 countries, as well as 14 sponsoring suppliers for a total of nearly 200 participants. We expect a similar interest and attendance for the WTSC 2020 based on the research being presented and proposed global issue discussions including:

  • An exclusive presentation of the first-ever global textile services market analysis by The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU).
