Specifically, the event will introduce the audience to electroplating techniques in the textiles industry and how this might be used to open up new opportunities for local textiles and related businesses to strengthen their competitiveness. In the second part of the event, the audience will be introduced to how algorithms can be used to tailor textiles production and services to improve competitiveness, and the audience will be shown how this can be easily achieved through professional service input.
