INDA is transitioning two events to an all-virtual format for 2020 in deference to corporate travel policies and individual concerns about travel. Registration is open for the virtual World of Wipes (WOW) international conference, aligned with the WIPES academy training course, and the RISE (Research, Innovation & Science for Engineered Fabrics) conference.

Virtual WOW offers 30 speaker presentations focused on breakthrough wipe technologies, buyer demographics, sustainability, industrial, and flushable wipes, substrates, preservatives, single use plastics, and strategy-setting market intelligence. Presentations will also address industry changes prompted by COVID-19. All speaker presentations will be recorded and available near real-time and on-demand for 12 months, according to a press release by INDA.

Participants will connect with senior-level wipes professionals through audio and visual presentations on relevant technical and educational content with business engagement opportunities through virtual table-top displays, web pages, video, live chat, and calendar appointments.

The Virtual WIPES academy will be held on August 25-26, the virtual WOW conference presentations will be held on August 25-27, the 2020 World of Wipes innovation award presentations will be held on August 26, the virtual WOW table-top displays will be held on August 26-27, and the 2020 World of Wipes innovation award announcement will be on August 27, 2020.

Developed for technology scouts and product developers, the 10th edition of RISE will present ‘What’s Next’ in sustainability developments. Virtual RISE offers 23 speaker presentations focused on new developments in polymers, fibres, additives, and fabrics, from sourcing and disposal to reuse amid the trends that are driving nonwoven advances.

The virtual RISE conference presentations will be held on September 29-30, RISE 2020 innovation award presentations are scheduled for September 29, and the RISE 2020 innovation award announcement will be held on September 30, 2020.

“Survey results from INDA members are telling us companies have extended travel restrictions and people still have personal concerns on travel, at least until the end of September 2020. While we look forward to the industry reconvening in person, virtual WOW and virtual RISE will provide an opportunity for our industry members to access relevant programme content,” Dave Rousse, INDA president said.
