INDA Postpones Asian Conference

December 8, 2008

Interest high but economic issues prevent event.

With the global economic crisis impacting all aspects of the business of nonwovens, INDA, Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry, has decided to postpone the inaugural Link with Asia 2009 Conference, which was scheduled for early May in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

“The Link with Asia has been in planning for nearly a year and our market research, along with our initial interest by both participants and sponsors, indicated that this is an excellent idea,” said INDA president Rory Holmes. “However, with the worldwide economic issues impacting all aspects of our business, it was not the right time to launch a new event."

Billed as “The East/West Business Connection,” The Link with Asia was conceived to bring together North American and Asian companies with a common interest in the business of nonwovens and engineered fabrics.

INDA will reassess the concept of The Link with Asia Conference as the global economic situation improves and will look to reschedule the event at a later time.
