The 4th International Conference on Nonwovens for High-performance Applications (updated September 5, 2018)

11. October 2018 - 12. October 2018

The 4th International Conference on Nonwovens for High-performance Applications will take place at Hotel Novotel Cannes Montfleury in Cannes, France, on October 11-12, 2018, once again bringing together senior managerial, technical and marketing staff from nonwovens manufacturers, suppliers to the industry, converters/finishers, product designers and processors, application sector OEMS, researchers and end-users to discuss progress and possibilities

Organised by International Newsletters Ltd, this conference is a unique meeting designed to inform delegates about the latest technical developments and opportunities offered from technical nonwovens including markets, materials and manufacturing techniques.  The global nonwovens industry is thriving, primarily because new applications for these highly adaptable engineered materials continue to be found.

The core of the programme will be presentations by invited industry leaders, but in order to give an opportunity for anyone with exciting and relevant ideas to present to the high-level international audience.


The global nonwovens market is projected to grow at 6.2 % annually over the next five years. The identification and commercialisation of new, disruptive technologies is critical to long-term growth.

Attendance at the 4th Conference on Nonwovens for High-performance Applications on 10-11 October 2018 in Cannes, France, is a simple and cost effective way of keeping abreast of technological developments.

The latest addition to the programme, entitled The most disruptive technologies in high-performance nonwoven applications: forecast to 2028, Smithers Pira (UK), will examine developments over this 10-year period, including disruptive process technologies, for example predictive analytical process control and single step resin to product manufacturing; disruptive raw material technologies like microfibre and nanofibre spinning; and disruptive product technologies such as smart fabrics and controlled release technologies.

Advances in various areas offer promise of market growth in high-performance nonwoven sectors, several of which reflect the content of other presentations on the programme, delivering a cohesive structure throughout 21 presentations over two days.
