OUTLOOK™ Latin America is part of EDANA’s Outreach programme that includes an extension to the reach of its established events to new markets, and offers a unique conference and networking event for the nonwovens personal care products industry. During the event, opportunities to promote your company and services will also be made available.

“With both interest and investments across Latin America attracting strong interest from across the nonwovens supply chain, this event offers not only a unique opportunity for businesses to promote their presence, but also a must-attend chance to meet and speak with the local and global personal care and hygiene nonwovens industry.” said Pierre Wiertz, General Manager of EDANA.

“We are delighted to partner with EDANA to reach beyond traditional markets and organize a world-class event in the southern half of our hemisphere.  Latin American producers of nonwoven products in Personal Care represent a growing element of our membership, with several companies operating in both North and South America.  This jointly organized event fulfils objectives of both associations in a single event, and highlights the importance of this growing and dynamic market,” said Dave Rousse, INDA President.

With a focus on providing opportunities for their member companies and local businesses, the focus of the conference and event will be to ensure the sustainable development of the nonwovens and related industries.

The OUTLOOK™ conference series is directly aimed at the producers and converters of nonwoven materials and their related industries for personal care products and wipes.  With 11 editions in Europe and its first edition in Asia Pacific in 2013, the series has attracted more than 4,000 participants from across the globe.
