Austria PTC Conference in Vienna: Fashion needs care – now and in the future

The 2018 federal meeting of textile cleaners, scrubbers and dyers in Austria was recently held in the federal capital of Vienna. The motto of the event was “Fashion needs care”.

The conference was attended by over 100 textile cleaners from all over the country. On Friday the event started with the annual gala evening at  the conference hotel with dinner buffet and music. The main topics of the actual meeting on Saturday were the care of outerwear, the upcoming collective bargaining negotiations with the keyword minimum wage € 1,500.00 and the basic data protection regulation, since these themes affect each and every business considerably.

Some other items that also were discussed: RFID-technology, training & education in textile care, energy-saving possibilities in the steam production and textile protection in case of irremovable stains. The late afternoon podium discussion featured ‘Does fashion still needs care in the future’ and came up with a fashion-biased future scenario presented by branch experts and fashion manufacturers. All in all, the attendees witnessed an interesting program and were content with the excellent organisation of the event.
