EDANA welcomes acquistion of MTS' INSIGHT by INDA and congratulates both parties

INDA has purchased the INSIGHT International Conference from Marketing Technology Service, Inc. EDANA congratulates INDA on this move and commends Jim Hanson for 35 years of success in bringing the industry together in the USA on an annual basis in a distinct type of event with a unique flavour and atmosphere.

INDA, the Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry, has purchased the INSIGHT International Conference from Marketing Technology Service, Inc. (MTS), announcing that it will combine the long-standing event with its VISION Consumer Products Conference. Both events have focused on the absorbent product and disposable hygiene market segments - See more at: http://www.inda.org/inda-acquires-insight-conference-from-marketing-technology-service-inc.

EDANA congratulates INDA on this move - which meets the nonwovens industry’s requirements for fewer, more focused sector events – and commends Jim Hanson for 35 years of success in bringing the industry together in the USA on an annual basis in a distinct type of event with a unique flavour and atmosphere.

“EDANA”, says Pierre Wiertz, the association’s general manager, “will continue to schedule its OUTLOOK™ conference every year towards the end of  September in Europe, and expects that global industry participants will be satisfied by this move, which reduces the number of events for nonwoven-based personal care products, a welcome outcome for our cost-conscious business community. Additionally, this ensures an interval of 4 weeks or more between the two events, as INSIGHT has always taken place between the end of October and mid-November.

OUTLOOK™ has gone from strength to strength in Europe for 12 editions, attracting over 400 participants from 30 countries in 2013, and will again come to Barcelona in September 2014. OUTLOOK™ is now a true intercontinental series of conferences, with recent expansion to Asia in 2013, where it will again be held in November 2014, and the launch of the Latin American edition in Sao Paulo from the 3rd to 5th March 2015, together with support from INDA and ABINT, the Brazilian Nonwovens Association. The OUTLOOK™ conference series owes its success to high level speakers, a diverse and relevant programme and unparalleled networking opportunities for all companies and individuals throughout the supply chain. “With a real need for a comprehensive programme, and a chance to meet with individuals from across the globe, we have consciously kept a focus on presentations of interest and topical relevance to the industry” concludes Pierre Wiertz

The preliminary programme for OUTLOOK™ 2014 (September 24-26th in Barcelona) will be announced in the coming weeks on our dedicated webpage.
