INDA Enthusiastically Supports RISI Asia Pacific Hygiene Symposium

New Symposium Focused on Hygiene Trends to be Held in China This Fall

Cary, NC, April 18, 2016 – INDA has joined with RISI to sponsor the Asia Pacific Hygiene Products Symposium that has been relaunched this year to provide a more in-depth focus on hygiene industry developments.

The event combines the well-known Asia Pacific Nonwovens Symposium and new Tissue Symposium for the first time. It will be held Oct. 10-11, 2016 in Shanghai, China.

“INDA is pleased to co-sponsor the Asia Pacific Hygiene Products Symposium with RISI,” said INDA president Dave Rousse. “The new format gives attendees more time to concentrate on hygiene industry developments in greater depth, discuss important issues and make new connections. We expect the Symposium to be even more valuable for both the nonwovens segment and the tissue segment.”

Themed “Hygiene Markets in Asia Pacific: From Now to 2020,” presentations by top industry experts will explore baby diaper and disposable hygiene trends; nonwovens for evolving markets; China’s adult incontinence market; online sales in China; and equipment for tomorrow’s hygiene products among other topics.

Last year’s event, the 2nd Asia Pacific Nonwovens Symposium, organized by RISI and WTiN, was also held in Shanghai in May. It attracted more than 150 attendees from 25 countries. This year’s event will precede the Cinte Techtextil China show scheduled for October 12-14.
