INDA, the association of the nonwoven fabrics industry, has announced new dates for the 22nd edition of IDEA – a leading exhibition for nonwovens and engineered fabrics. 

Originally scheduled to take place from April 23-25, 2024, it will now be held from April 29-May 1, 2025, at the Miami Beach Convention Center in Miami Beach, Florida.

In 2022, IDEA attracted 5,000 participants from across the global supply chain to engage with nonwovens and engineered materials senior-level leaders in Miami. IDEA 2022 was co-located with the second FiltXPO, North America’s only exhibition and conference dedicated exclusively to filtration and separation.

“We are moving IDEA away from an already-crowded 2024 event calendar to better serve the industry,” said Tony Fragnito, INDA president.  “In 2025 this IDEA schedule, again co-located with FiltXPO, is much more desirable as other industry relevant events adjust schedules post-pandemic. INDA remains committed to a two-year cycle for IDEA, which will take place every other year in the spring.  IDEA 2027 will be held March 29 to April 1.

“We are excited to return to Miami Beach to build upon our successful 2022 event.  The 2025 programme will focus on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) innovation and practices within our industry. We will also continue to expand our workforce development programmes and highlight award-winning innovation with the coveted IDEA Achievement Awards programme.”
