Cary, NC – June 2, 2015 – INDA announces the Filtration® 2015 International Conference & Exposition will take place at Navy Pier in Chicago, Illinois, Nov. 17-19 and will focus on filter media for air and liquid filtration.  The conference and expo will feature industry-leading presentations, filtration educational training, face-to-face engagement, and showcase new products on the exposition floor. The “Pure Opportunity” theme of the event builds on the purification function of the filter media industry which is valued at $15.4 billion in 2013 end use sales in North America and a robust 4 percent annual growth rate from 2008.

Filtration 2015 session topics will highlight Industry Intelligence, Leading Edge Technologies and Potential Solutions and Standards. Filtration market macro trends will also be discussed with business intelligence from INDA’s recently released North American Nonwovens Industry Outlook 2013-2018 Report.

Back due to popular demand, INDA’s Nonwoven Filter Media Training Course will co-locate with Filtration 2015 prior to the exposition, for 1.5 days beginning, Nov. 17 and concluding Nov. 18, Wednesday morning.
