Métropole Européenne de Lille
The Textifood exhibition will be an opportunity for the Métropole Européenne de Lille and the Région Nord-Pas de Calais to present their excellence in the field of technical textiles. With the opening of the European Centre for Innovative Textiles in 2012, the UP-tex technology cluster, their dynamic ecosystem and the many companies operating in their territory, the Métropole Européenne de Lille and the Région Nord-Pas de Calais remain true to their long textile tradition, now turning to innovative textiles. MEL and the Region will also accompany a delegation from technology clusters and companies from the region active in the agri-food, design, textile and innovative materials sectors. The goal is to have these regional economic stakeholders showcase their products and know-how internationally.
