EDANA, the leading global association serving the nonwovens and related industries today launched the draft programme of the International Nonwovens Symposium, to be held in Vienna from the 12th to 13th June 2019.

The symposium covers a range of nonwovens topics across all type of applications with a predominant emphasis on sustainability. As Pierre Wiertz, General Manager of EDANA noted “Looking back at the focus of the INS over the years sustainability as a topic has evolved from a minor interest subject to take primacy on the agenda, thereby reflecting our industry’s priority concerns”. 

The 2019 programme will kick off with a key note speech on the impact of the changing global trade patterns on the nonwovens industry by Hosuk Lee-Makiyama, Director of the European Centre for International Political Economy (ECIPE).

A range of presentations will feature, covering essential business areas of the nonwovens sector, including:

  • Nonwovens innovation
  • Sustainability
  • Material, Process & Products Development
  • Market & Industry trends

The International Nonwovens Symposium has been recognized by professionals as one of the best forums worldwide for knowledge enhancement with excellent technical content. The tabletop exhibition organised during the event is also a great opportunity for participants to extend their network and develop business contacts.
