The exhibition will take place from 8-10 November. New this year, complimentary admission to the exhibit hall will be offered to industry participants on 10 November.

“The unwavering strength of the Filtration International Conference & Exposition demonstrates the importance and staying power of the filtration segment as it responds to seismic shifts in our industry and the world around us,” said INDA President Dave Rousse. “This event continues to show its tremendous value in connecting industry pioneers, providing clear solutions to needs, and presenting the latest on important industry topics.”

Alfred Weber, President and CEO, MANN+HUMMEL International and GmbH & Co. KG will deliver the keynote address on Filtration Meets Digitalization, followed by a full slate of presentations from top scientists, researchers, engineers, product developers, business leaders, and government officials on 8 November.

The Filtration Exposition kicks off on 9 November and will be highlighted by an industry reception on the show floor where INDA will commemorate the important 25th year milestone with a special recognition. The event also fulfils the educational needs of participants with a one-and-a-half day course from 8-9 November on Nonwoven Filter Media, led by Christine Sun, PhD, Principal, Filtration Technologies International.
