“This third edition of the Outlook Plus Latin America conference highlights the opportunities and potential for growth across the Latin American nonwovens industry, particularly for the personal care industries. In organising this conference, we are keen to offer a programme that addresses both retail and marketing aspects as well as product design considerations that are key to understand the Latin American nonwovens markets. The programme also features important presentations on medical application and – for the very first time- filtration media, highlighting the opportunities into the Latin American nonwovens industry,” Marines Lagemaat, technical director of Edana said.
“INDA is pleased to once again co-organize a major nonwovens conference in South America focused on nonwoven markets in South America. For this edition, we have had outstanding support from ABINT, the Brazilian nonwovens organisation, in developing a programme consisting largely of Brazilian presenters on the markets there. This will be a must-attend event for all elements of the nonwovens supply chain in South America, from raw material supplier to roll goods producer to the converters and brand owners,” Dave Rousse, INDA president said.
