INDA is transitioning two conference events scheduled for August and September to an all-virtual format for 2020 in deference to corporate travel policies and individual concerns about travel.

Registration is open for the virtual World of Wipes International Conference, aligned with the WIPES Academy training course, and the RISE (Research, Innovation & Science for Engineered Fabrics) Conference.

“Survey results from INDA members are telling us companies have extended travel restrictions and people still have personal concerns on travel – at least until the end of September,” said Dave Rousse, INDA president. “While we look forward to the industry reconvening in person, Virtual WOW and Virtual RISE will provide an opportunity for our industry members to access relevant program content.”

Virtual WOW offers 30 speaker presentations focused on breakthrough wipe technologies, buyer demographics, sustainability, industrial and flushable wipes, substrates, preservatives, single use plastics, and strategy-setting market intelligence. Presentations will also address industry changes prompted by COVID-19. All speaker presentations will be recorded and available near real-time and on-demand for 12 months.

Participants will connect with senior-level wipes professionals through audio and visual presentations on relevant technical and educational content with business engagement opportunities through virtual table top displays, web pages, video, live chat, and calendar appointments.
