OUTLOOK 2009 programme announced

EDANA is pleased to announce the programme for the 8th edition of OUTLOOK, which will take place in Malta from the 23rd to 25th September 2009.
Personal Care Products Conference to drive industry and business growth

EDANA is pleased to announce the programme for the 8th edition of OUTLOOK, which will take place in Malta from the 23rd to 25th September 2009.  Included in the programme are sessions which focus on emerging markets and technology trends, innovation and R&D, the retail sector’s approach to sustainability, and the impact of the economic environment on retailers and suppliers.

The 2009 conference is designed to bring together key players within the personal care products industry, providing an environment for delegates to both attend sessions with renowned business consultants, top academics and authoritative industry speakers, and to also engage their business partners in the various formal and informal networking opportunities organised throughout the event.

With 2009 the European year of Creativity and Innovation, the challenges faced by business in the current economic climate make it all the more important for producers and marketers of personal care products to focus on the horizon – where their business is placed for the future, and what features or qualities consumers will demand over the coming years.

The selection of Malta as the location for the 2009 Outlook conference reflects both a budget-conscious location and the established tradition of a suitable environment for high-level business contacts, with EDANA passing along the country’s lower VAT rate to attending delegates.

EDANA welcomes both its members and non-member industry and representatives from the whole supply chain to the event, which attracts key industry players from Europe and across the globe.  A copy of the full programme, registration forms and current delegate list can be found on the EDANA website, under ‘Events’.

EDANA, serves the nonwovens and related industries (previously known as the European Disposables and Nonwovens Association), and has 220 member companies in over 30 countries.  Its Mission is to create the foundation for sustainable growth of the nonwovens, absorbent hygiene products and related industries through active promotion, education and dialogue.  Information about upcoming events can be found at
