The two global nonwovens associations, EDANA and INDA, have announced that the Renaissance Sao Paulo Hotel, Sao Paulo, Brazil has been named as the conference location and is now accepting room reservations for Outlook Plus Latin America.

The inaugural conference will cover market, product and technology intelligence for hygiene, personal care and durable applications from 3-5 March next year in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

“This expansion to Latin America in 2015 will provide an exciting and positive outlook on the region, and we are confident that the local nonwovens industry will welcome the opportunity to showcase its investment and capabilities,” said Pierre Wiertz, General Manager of EDANA.

Outlook Plus Latin America

Outlook Plus Latin America is co-organised by both INDA and EDANA with support from ABINT, the Brazilian Technical Textiles and Nonwovens Association.

The conference is part of the EDANA Outreach programme to provide high-quality information, conferences and networking events to the global nonwovens, engineered fabrics and related industries, particularly outside Western Europe.

Outlook Plus Latin America is the first occasion for the two global nonwovens associations to partner in a Latin American event.

Expanded programme

This new conference offers an expanded programme with the last day covering all nonwoven applications. All presentations will be simultaneously translated into English, Portuguese, and Spanish.

The Outlook conference series is aimed at the producers and converters of nonwoven materials and their related industries for personal care products and wipes.

With 12 editions in Europe and its first edition in Asia Pacific in 2013, the series has attracted more than 4,400 participants from across the globe.

Active business destination

“We are pleased to announce early the conference hotel and open the hotel registration process to enable our many industry supporters to plan their participation in Outlook Plus Latin America 2015,” commented  Dave Rousse, INDA’s President.

“We understand Sao Paulo is an active business destination between the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics, and we’re addressing the needs of our members and the local community to plan their attendance at this important event, even before we announce the preliminary programme later this year.”

“Both INDA, our partner Association in North America, and EDANA, are focused on supporting local business, as well as our member companies to support the ongoing development of the business and regulatory environment, and diversification of exports. These important themes will obviously be reflected in the topics of presentations,” commented Pierre Wiertz.
