EDANA will offer a special REACH workshop for members on the morning of 30th May, just before the opening of the Symposium.  Advice on the practical implications of REACH for the nonwovens and related industries will be provided by experts.  Pre-registration is necessary, as the limited places will be allocated on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.

And last but not least, EDANA’s cocktail will take place in the impressive Hamburger Bahnhof Museum für Gegenwart.  Delegates are invited to enjoy a drink and networking surrounded by works of art.

Synonymous with top level quality and outstanding networking, like all EDANA events, the International Nonwovens Symposium promises to be a great success.   It presents a unique chance to reach the most highly qualified audience of nonwovens professionals in 2007.  Previous EDANA Symposia in Barcelona in 2004 and Vienna in 2006 have attracted up to 300 delegates.
