TRSA will broadcast on September 29 a webinar on the soon-to-be-published, first-ever Global Textile Services Market Analysis, including an executive panel discussion with market-leading, globally operating linen, uniform, and facility services providers. You’ll get some insight into the scope of this Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) research, which examines worldwide opportunities to be seized and risks to be managed by the industry.

Claire Casey, EIU global managing director, will keynote the presentation. Factoring the economic turmoil from COVID-19 into its study, EIU has examined shifts in market sectors key to the industry worldwide, including:

  • Construction;
  • Energy (oil and gas);
  • Healthcare;
  • Hotels; and
  • Manufacturing.

The full analysis covers all world regions and includes detailed forecasts for 13 countries, combining industry expert insights with evidence-driven research, examining how linen and uniform service has grown globally. The full report is available at a discounted pre-order price for a limited time only through the TRSA store (use code “globalwtsc” at checkout to activate the discount).
