Research & Innovation Lab

Staying ahead of the competition and continuing to be relevant and sustainable in this fast-paced industry requires you to be at the centre of innovation.


The Research & Innovation Lab (R&I Lab) will be the hub of innovation at ITMA 2023.

Innovation: the heartbeat of transformation


The R&I Lab (previously the R&I Pavilion) showcases cutting-edge developments from research and educational institutes, and the industry.


Participating in the Lab not only allows you to profile your research projects and solutions, it gives you access to network and collaborate with global brand leaders to bring your projects a step forward to market, and with top textile universities and research organisations from around the world.
