The INDEX™20 Innovation Awards are presented only once every three years for “Excellence in the nonwovens and related industries”. Originally due to be presented at the INDEX™20 exhibition in April, since postponed until the 7th – 10th September 2021, EDANA has decided to present these coveted industry Awards ‘Live’, in an on-line ceremony which will take place on 6th October 2020, from 3 pm – 4pm.
The Awards are comprised of 7 categories covering all fields of the nonwovens supply chain, with a maximum of 3 nominees selected per category. The winners will not be disclosed until the on-line event on 6th October 2020.
The live ceremony will feature short videos from the nominees in each category (see below), followed by the announcement of the winner of each live on-line.
In addition, during the weeks leading up to the live event, observers and participants in the nonwovens industry will be able to view all the videos from the nominees posted on the indexnonwovens LinkedIn page as of Tuesday 8th September.
By watching the videos of their choice, visitors to the page will be able to participate in a special prize. The video which receives the most ‘Likes’ in total on the indexnonwovens page will be honoured with a special INDEX™20 ‘People’s Prize’, and voted the most liked industry innovation of this year.
All the Award winners’ and nominees’ submissions will subsequently be on display in the Nonwovens Innovation Lab, a new feature at the INDEX™20 exhibition, taking place at Palexpo in Geneva, from 7th- 10th September 2021
