OUTLOOK™ 14 Highlights the Future of the Nonwovens Industry

From raw materials to the customer, personal care and hygiene products deliver tangible benefits. With more than 420 delegates from across the nonwovens and related industries, OUTLOOK™ was again confirmed as the must-attend event of the year for the personal care and hygiene products industries

In opening the 13th edition of OUTLOOK™, the world-leading conference for the nonwovens personal care industry, Pierre Wiertz, General Manager of EDANA reminded delegates that there was a close relationship between many of the conference themes, and EDANA’s daily mission to support the growth and promote the sustainable development of the industry.

“While our industries continue to face challenges, be it those raised by the relative uncertainty of the current global economy or geo-political situations, or the demands from the end consumer, our industry will address these – as you do with other challenges – with a recognition of the indispensible role your products play in our lives every day, and the social benefits they deliver.” said Wiertz.

“With the changing demands from the consumer, from developing markets, and evolving requirements along the supply chain, both the Association’s coordinated programme of work, and the continual investment and development by companies are essential to the sustainable and profitable growth of individual companies and the industries we serve.” continued Wiertz.

With more than 420 delegates from across the nonwovens and related industries, OUTLOOK™ was again confirmed as the must-attend event of the year for the personal care and hygiene products industries.

Feedback from participants throughout the event underlined the satisfaction with the many opportunities to meet with the industry, and the mix and quality of papers. With opportunities engineered for delegates to focus both on the conference proceeding and to enjoy relaxed networking, attracting the whole supply chain of the absorbent hygiene products and wipes industry from across the globe, OULOOK™, the only one of its kind in Europe, is one of the “must-attend” events each year.

With OUTLOOK™ having already expanded into Asia, with its second edition in November 2014, and the first edition of OUTLOOK™ Plus Latin America in Sao Paulo, Brazil in March 2015, the nonwoven personal care and hygiene industries (and a broader industry focus in Brazil), regardless of location, have the support of a world-leading event to both meet and get informed about those topics and issues essential to its development.

The next edition of OUTLOOK™ will take place in Athens, Greece, from the 23rd to the 25th September, 2015.  Details about the location and booking forms for the hotel will be posted to the EDANA website.
