Edana reports a very successful Outlook
With more than 420 delegates from across the nonwovens and related industries, OUTLOOK™, the world-leading conference for the nonwovens hygiene and personal care industry, was again confirmed as the must-attend event of the year for the personal care and hygiene products industries, showcasing Edana’s daily mission to support the growth and promote the sustainable development of the industry
“With the broad supply chain for the NW hygiene market present at OUTLOOK, the Athens event confirmed the value of attending for our business.” Said Eamonn Tighe, European Fibres Business Development for Natureworks LLC.
Feedback from participants throughout the event underlined the satisfaction with the many opportunities to meet with the industry, and the mix and quality of papers. With opportunities engineered for delegates to focus both on the conference proceeding and to enjoy relaxed networking, attracting the whole supply chain of the absorbent hygiene products and wipes industry from across the globe, OULOOK™, the only one of its kind in Europe, is one of the “must-attend” events each year.
“OUTLOOK is the event where the global NW hygiene industry meets. As a nonwoven supplier to this industry, it was essential that we attend and network with other participants.” Said Ray Dunleavy, Head of Global Marketing, Strategy and Business Development at Fitesa.
In 2015, Edana welcomed back Robert Ward from the Economist Intelligence Unit as the keynote speaker to address the “Global and EU Macroeconomic Outlook”, which was complemented by David Dodwell, CEO of Strategic Access Limited, on the final day of the conference on “The Rise of China and the Asia-Pacific: Understanding the challenges, harnessing the opportunities”.
Speakers across the conference presented market data, consumer and demographic trends from Europe, Asia and the global hygiene markets, and product and technology developments, and a special presentation on the role of private equity in the development of the nonwovens industry.
OUTLOOK™ 2016 will take place in Madrid, Spain, from the 21st to the 23rd September, 2015, and OUTLOOK™ Asia will be held again in Singapore for its third edition form the 2nd to 3rd March, 2016.
