INDA, the Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry, has launched a new website for IDEA16, the leading event for nonwovens and engineered fabrics that is set to take place from 2-5 May 2016 at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, in Boston, MA.

The new site contains valuable exhibitor and attendee information, including a live countdown to the highly anticipated event expected to attract more than 7,000 attendees and over 450 exhibitors from more than 70 countries, as well as online reservations for booths and registration, the latest show news, videos, and other useful planning resources.

On the website at, visitors can find transportation, hotel, travel, and special event details, exhibitor benefits, booth packages, show attendee demographics, and meeting room rental agreements, as well as sponsorship and advertisement opportunities, and downloadable event logos to share.    

Positive response

INDA reports high volume in early booth sales and a positive response to the location in the centre of Boston, a city known as the City of Science, offering visitors many opportunities to network, learn, and conduct business with industry peers. 

Boston was selected by show organiser INDA for its accessibility, size, and exhibitor-friendly benefits, when an alternative venue was needed for the triennial event due to major renovations scheduled for the Miami Beach Convention Center. INDA plans to return to Miami for future shows.

Must-attend event

Past attendees praised the show for its size, breadth, and ability to bring the entire industry together in all sectors – from hygiene, medical, and filtration to automotive, geotextiles, building, construction, and home furnishings – to conduct business with current and prospective customers, and learn about the latest new offerings over three days.

“IDEA is the nonwovens industry’s must-attend event for 2016 and we’re excited to be bringing it to Boston,” said Dave Rousse, INDA President.

“This Conference & Exposition will open your eyes to the latest developments in nonwovens and engineered fabrics from around the world, with top-notch speakers, hundreds of exhibitors, and thousands of industry peers looking to advance their business in nonwovens and engineered fabrics.”
