Committed To Your Growth
Whether you are a textile service operator or an industry supplier, you will benefit from the world-class training and educational programs that are presented by ITRA. Survey responses continually name networking and education as the top reasons to be a member of the only association solely dedicated to the independents!
Networking & Education
Since its inception, ITRA has become the association of choice for independent operators. ITRA holds two educational training meetings each year, and we pride ourselves on bringing all members the tools necessary to succeed in today’s competitive environment.
ITRA Mid-Year Training Conference & Exhibits:
Our goal is to provide exceptional education and training sessions that benefit your sales and service managers and personnel. Whether offered as an incentive or based on a team building platform, attendance at ITRA Mid-Year Training is second to none. Suppliers also play a key role during Mid-Year where they are given the opportunity to showcase their products, services and industry updates. These face-to-face interactions help build strong long-term business relationships.
ITRA Annual Convention:
Networking and peer interaction are all valuable aspects of the ITRA Annual Convention experience. Operators are given the opportunity to develop their business relationships with each other as well as with our diverse group of suppliers in a friendly, non-competitive environment. Members often share their “secrets” of success with each other, helping make independent businesses more successful. ITRA also invites expert speakers to provide industry-specific executive level training to all attendees.
