Advanced Textiles Association New Zealand work closely with the Advanced Textiles Association (ATA) formerly known as the Industrial Fabrics Association International (IFAI), the largest international organisation representing the specialty fabrics industry, and the Specialised Textiles Association (STA),  the Australian industry association, to provide our members with opportunities to connect industry members around the world.

Membership to ATA NZ includes a full annual membership to the ATA where ATA NZ members select one of 12 ATA divisions to be involved with and have access to all ATA member resources. Members have enjoyed attending the annual Expo as well as the Marine Fabricators Conference held in America.  You will also gain additional exposure with listings in ATA’s membership directory.

ATA NZ and STA work very closely with each other. This includes collaborating at conferences, sharing ideas and resources. ATA NZ members receive STA member pricing when they attend STA events. In 2017, STA and the association held their first conference together in Queenstown. We are looking forward to planning another conference together soon.
