February 09, 2024 - United States Of America

INDA, the association of the nonwoven fabrics industry, has announced that registration and tabletop exhibit reservations are open for the World of Wipes (WOW) International Conference. WOW 2024 will take place June 17-20 at the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis, Minneapolis. The theme for this year’s event is ‘Wipes Innovation & Sustainability – From Inception to Perfection’.

WOW will feature not-to-be missed content in responsible sourcing, end-of-life solutions, and innovations in sustainability. Industry leaders, such as The Clorox Company, Kimberly-Clark Professional, and Nice-Pak, amongst others, will present their sustainability insights in formulations, industrial and institutional wipes, alternatives to plastics, production technologies, recycling options, and regulatory issues, INDA said in a press release.

WOW conference will kick off with the WIPES Academy, from June 17-18. The course will be led by Heidi Beatty, chief executive officer, and her team of wipes professionals from Crown Abbey LLC. Participants will gain insights from product concept to commercialisation. Participants will develop insights about materials, design, manufacturing, packaging, and cost implications for industrial, institutional and consumer wipes applications.

Nominations are still being accepted for the World of Wipes Innovation Award. Nominees will be selected from a range of products and technologies that have been commercially available two years prior to WOW 2024. Products and technologies may include end product components, fabrication techniques, or end-products that use a nonwoven technology. The deadline for submissions is April 15. Finalists will make their presentations to WOW participants on June 18, with the award being presented on June 20.
