With the business of filtration playing an increasingly vital role in personal and business applications around the world, the Filtration 2009 International Conference and Exposition drew an impressive number of visitors and a total of 109 exhibitors to Navy Pier in Chicago from November 17-19.
Living up to its reputation as the largest filtration industry event in North America, Filtration 2009 attracted 1,426 attendees, an increase from the previous year’s event in Philadelphia. It also offered three days of seminars and tutorials covering all aspects of the supply chain.
The exposition consisted of a strong contingent of filtration-related companies that showcased their manufacturing and processing equipment, filtration media, associated filter components and testing services, as well as liquid and air filters.
“Attendees at Filtration 2009 were able to see and touch the latest developments in raw materials, machinery and finished products,” said Rory Holmes, President of INDA, Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry, organizer of the annual event. “The well-attended Conference offered a host of papers on the latest technology and issues impacting the business of filtration and the two-day Exposition provided attendees a chance to experience the products that are the future of this industry.”
