EDANA confirms that the OUTLOOK™20 conference will take place in Lisbon from 23-25 September as planned despite the unforeseen and forced postponement of INDEX™20.

OUTLOOK™ has a long tradition established since 2001, to gather annually the whole value chain in Europe for Absorbent Hygiene Products (AHPs) and wipes, in a unique combination of both high-level conference presentations and networking opportunities among key decision makers of the industry.

The 2020 OUTLOOK™ programme will have a specific focus on industry priorities such as product safety initiatives, global business and trade perspectives and evolving consumer perceptions. The impact of the EU Green Deal, the implementation of the Single Use Plastics Directive, and the practical consequences for the supply chain of the EU Medical Device Regulation will also be featured.     

The OUTLOOK™ format, in terms of topics discussed and venue, is uniquely designed to address such a whole range of business and sustainability challenges and opportunities, which cannot be offered in an exhibition setting.


Imagine one location where you can meet, connect and partner with more than 500 senior professionals, saving time and numerous trips...  
OUTLOOK™ makes it happen!

Learn about market growth and opportunities, innovations, technological developments and regulatory activities for the diaper, wet wipe, femcare and incontinence product categories.

Exchange through multiple networking opportunities with all players from middle-to senior management in the Hygiene Products supply chain.

"One of the most successful OUTLOOK conferences I have experienced. The record attendance and senior leader participation provided invaluable input on industry dynamics that will shape our participation for the next 5 years. Our company will be incorporating the learnings, particularly around sustainability, to enhance our offering with modified solutions based on the input from the week. Well done EDANA!"
Mark Siebert, President, EMEIA Health, Hygiene and Specialties Division, Berry Global           

"The quality of the people in attendance is really high calibre, it’s a very efficient use of my and my team’s time to meet with customers and suppliers and look for new opportunities.”
Lynda Kelly Senior Vice President, Care Division, Suominen

“Wonderful program, venue and execution. I now understand why Outlook has the reputation it so deservedly enjoys.” 
Alexander Koukoulas, President, A2K Consultants
