Innovation and new talent are key for growth in the textile sector, so the Belfast School of Art at Ulster University's End of Year Show is the perfect setting for the summer Textiles Industry Group Forum.

Come along to this event to meet the next generation of designers and innovators and get a special preview of the show before it opens to the public. There will also be an opportunity to vote for your favourite designs and the winners will be announced on the day.

After a tour of the show, industry experts will provide an overview of trends in the textile industry across the UK, discuss new funding opportunities and explore how your business can become more productive by adopting Industry 4.0 technologies and making better use of data.
