ARTA 2020 Conference is Feb. 26-28 at Gaylord Palms Resort in Florida

Invest in Your Team and Join Us in Orlando! 
The American Reusable Textile Association (ARTA) will hold its
 2020 Education Conference Feb. 26-28 at the Gaylord Palms Resort in Kissimmee, Florida. This year’s conference will focus on research, trends and issues to help your organization better market the benefits of reusable textiles. The agenda also includes tabletop exhibits, Welcome Reception by MIP, and Sponsor Reception. Optional activities include a Feb. 26 plant tour, TBD, and a Golf Scramble on Feb. 28. The $209 conference room rate is available three days before and after the conference dates.

This year ARTA’s education program ranges from best practices to research studies to trends in marketing that help you more effectively sell reusable textiles. For example:

  • The C. diff issue. What's next? ARTA published research in the American Journal of Infection Control (AJIC) that proves the laundry process kills C. diff (replicating the action of a tunnel washer and using Peracetic acid). ARTA is poised to undertake additional research on this issue and wants your feedback.
  • Trends in infection control. Experts discuss the latest trends in infection control and how your marketing and education efforts are key to making a difference.
  • The role of textile services in fighting climate change. Textiles services is an innately green industry. We offer a reusable product that is processed sustainably and recycled at the end of its life rather than land filled. The challenge is to better market ourselves. Learn strategies and get "how-to" examples from experts.
  • Results from ARTA's latest life cycle analysis on incontinence pads. ARTA has recently completed and will share results of its LCA on incontinence pads and how to use the data with clients.

Who should attend? CEOs, managers and marketing/sales staff. Consider bringing your partner and family for a vacation before or after the conference.
