With a new earlier date, Filtration 2017 is expected to surpass the huge turnout last November for its 25th anniversary edition of more than 1,300 participants in Philadelphia. Registration has opened and the Filtration 2017 website has launched.

Delivering strong value

The powerful combination of leading-edge products and applications, technical advances, networking, top speakers, plus education and training – all entirely focused on the growing filtration segment – continues to deliver strong value for leading suppliers and customers of filtration media and components who exhibit and attend Filtration 2017. 

Filtration 2017 will be highlighted by programme additions on the Industrial Internet of Things, a panel discussion on ISO 16890 standards, and a luncheon keynote address on the attractiveness of the industry that is driving consolidation. 

INDA will again hold its one-and-a-half day acclaimed Nonwoven Filter Media Training Course prior to the exposition’s start, from 10-11 October. The conference will be held on 10 October and the exhibition takes place from 11-12 October. The industry reception will be on 11 October, on the show floor.

Conference headliners

Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) Developments in Filtration will be presented by Abdoulaye Doucoure, Senior R&D Scientist, Hollingsworth & Vose Company, who will moderate a panel with Herve Buisson, Vice President of Veolia Water, and Frank Stamatatos, President of SecureAire. The session will discuss how interconnected smart systems can save time, increase operational efficiency and capture new growth.

Why the Filter Industry Is Suddenly So Attractive – A Look at What's Driving Recent M&A Activity – In his keynote address, Phil Whitaker, President and CEO, AAF Flanders, will explore what’s behind the upswing of M&A activity involving filtration-related companies over the last few years and how players can enhance their value. 

Moderated by Robert Burkhead, President of Blue Heaven Technologies, the panel called ISO 16890 Panel: Is This Good or Bad for the U.S. Industry? will discuss all sides around ISO 16890, which establishes an efficiency classification system of air filters for general ventilation based upon particulate matter (PM).

Other not-to-be-missed sessions include: Key Developments in Air Purification, Latest Developments in Media Design, and Approaches to Measuring Air Filter Energy Efficiency.
