The first CEE-TEX event has shown its potential as a platform for strengthening the collaboration and position of Professional Textile Care (PTC) in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE-region). With the attendance of the region’s leading organizations, over 8 hours of notable presentations, and an abundance of plans for further collaboration the inaugural CEE-TEX has proven to be a great success.
With some 200 attendees—representing PTC companies, suppliers, associations, as well as individual professionals and experts—the event offered ample opportunity for networking, exchanging information and discussing future plans.
Speaking topics during the inaugural CEE-TEX summit covered sustainability, energy savings, technology solutions, new business models and e-learning. Additionally, the summit facilitated country introductions and roundtable discussions—a CEE’s first!
TTE, CINET and TMTE heartily thank the national sponsors Procter & Gamble and Hohenstein and international sponsors Dow|Safechem, Christeyns, Union, Firbimatic and Realstar for their enthusiasm and contributions.
