Co-organised by the China Industrial Textiles Industry Association (CNITA) and EDANA, the Symposium was also supported by several other key international organisations including the International Textile Manufacturers Association (ITMF), the International Geosynthetics Society (IGS) and the International Society for Geosynthetic Materials China Committee (CCIGS).

“The success of the first edition of the EAGS confirms that our idea to organise a symposium dedicated to geotextiles was a good one," said Li Lingshen, President of CNITA, "We will assess the opportunity for future activities in this field. We thank our partners and sponsors and look forward to our continued cooperation with EDANA.”

Participants had the opportunity to learn of the latest trends and developments in technologies, markets and applications for geotextiles during 22 presentations by industry leaders and experts. The significant potential for global development of the geotextiles market was highlighted through the conference and confirmed by the level of interest in the companies participating in the tabletop exhibition.

“Since we started preparing the EAGS two years ago, the Chinese Belt and Road policy was launched, making geotextiles even more topical and promising as a market segment. Geotextiles will not only be indispensable to implement such a large infrastructure plan, they will also help reduce the environmental impact,” commented Pierre Wiertz, General Manager of EDANA.
