International Textile Services Alliance (ITSA), which includes representatives of national and regional B2B associations, has started to plan a global summit conference on textile services in 2016. The last such event was held in London in 2001.

Brussels has been suggested as a likely venue for the 2016 event and ITSA plans to align the conference with the Texcare exhibition, scheduled to take place in Frankfurt 11- 15 June 2016.

At a meeting during Clean 2013 in New Orleans, TSA executive director Murray Simpson and Joseph Ricci, CEO of the Textile Rental Services Association of America, agreed to lead the planning process.
