“We are pleased to announce early the conference hotel and open the hotel registration process to enable our many industry supporters to plan their participation in OUTLOOK™ Plus Latin America 2015. We understand Sao Paulo is an active business destination between the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics, and we’re addressing the needs of our members and the local community to plan their attendance at this important event, even before we announce the preliminary program later this year,” said Dave Rousse, INDA’s President.

“This expansion to Latin America in 2015 will provide an exciting and positive outlook on the region, and we are confident that the local nonwovens industry will welcome the opportunity to showcase its investment and capabilities,” said Pierre Wiertz, General Manager of EDANA. “Both INDA, our partner Association in North America, and EDANA, are focused on supporting local business, as well as our member companies to support the ongoing development of the business and regulatory environment, and diversification of exports.
