Outlook 2020 nonwovens conference to go online

May 14, 2020 - Belgium

Edana, the global association serving the nonwovens and related industries, has announced that Outlook 2020, which was to be held from September 23-25, 2020, will go online. Outlook 2021 will be held in Lisbon at the Corinthia hotel, from April 21-23, 2021. Outlook is the leading nonwovens personal care, hygiene, and wipes products conference.

For the last 15 years, Outlook has gathered hundreds of professionals annually around high-level, thought provoking presentations, panels and workshops, while providing a unique networking setting for the whole value chain.

Outlook 2020 will take place from September 23-25, 2020 via an online platform. Each day a three-hour webinar will feature an outstanding programme with keynotes speeches, presentations, Q&A, and discussions. The recent development in the different nonwoven applications contributing directly in the fight against COVID-19, the industry’s efforts and the long-term plans regarding the European Union supply will also be part of the programme. The Whova app will be offered to allow maximum interaction and networking among participants, Edana said in a press release.

Outlook 2021 will feature a new session on healthcare and medical developments, a sector in which the role of nonwovens has been highlighted during the COVID-19 pandemic. Those dates in Spring were chosen to allow enough time between the conference and Index 20, the leading nonwovens exhibition, which has been rescheduled to September 7-10, 2021.
