The first two days of the inaugural three-day conference and exhibition will examine market, product and technology intelligence for hygiene and personal care. The third day caps the event with a unique new focus on durable nonwoven applications and future opportunities.

Keynote presenter, Roberto Macedo, PhD, leads the conference with global and regional economic prospects for the Mercosul Region (Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay, and Venezuela).

Nonwovens and absorbent hygiene products

The conference will also highlight latest developments in nonwovens and absorbent hygiene products for these markets and new trends and analysis of components and raw materials, led by senior management and industry area experts.

OUTLOOK Plus Latin America 2015 offers a unique session and panel discussion on medical nonwovens, addressing why single-use drapes and gowns are not yet used extensively throughout Latin America.

Panelists will address the prevailing sentiment in emerging markets that the cost for single-use Operation Room nonwoven products outweigh the benefits.

Shoe and automotive segments

The third day’s focus on Latin American durable and industrial nonwoven markets features sessions on nonwovens for the shoe and automotive segments with an expert outlook on trends and drivers for growth.

“Product Stewardship is a critical element for companies and our Associations, and is therefore a key element of the program,” said Pierre Wiertz, General Manager of EDANA. “OUTLOOK Plus Latin America 2015 is in line with the expectation of our member companies for their trade association to provide leadership in helping them to address the regulatory, product safety, or sustainability challenges facing their business.”

Unique expertise

“It is important that INDA reach out to our neighbours in Latin America and provide an appropriate forum to showcase opportunities and trends in nonwoven materials and their important end markets,” said Dave Rousse, President of INDA.

“Together with EDANA, we’ve gathered an impressive group of speakers with a unique expertise on this important and growing region.”

Conference delegates will find the same ingredients that have made the OUTLOOK series of conferences across the globe a success, with more than 4,000 delegates across Europe and Asia attending in the last 14 years.
