Tim Offray, EVP of Business Operations at OTEX Specialty Narrow Fabrics, Inc. sums up his experience:

“The Outlook Conference provided an excellent forum to connect with industry experts and broaden my knowledge on a variety of valuable and important subject matters.  As a first-time attendee, I was very impressed by the quality of the speakers, the insight and knowledge they shared, as well as their enthusiasm for the new and unique opportunities that lie ahead for the U.S. textile industry.”
