The exhibition leg of Filtration 2011 began today at Chicago’s Navy Pier. The exposition, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary, features more than 120 exhibitors from all links in the filter supply chain. Exhibitors, including nonwovens makers, media makers, machinery and equipment suppliers and raw material makers, are showcasing the latest products, technologies and end products for filtration. Between today and tomorrow, the event is expected to attract close to 1400 attendees from 30 countries to network, attend the conference and walk the aisles of the exhibition hall.
“As it returns to Chicago after a successful show in Philadelphia last year, Filtration 2011 will certainly live up to its reputation as the most important and largest gathering of the global filtration business this year,” says INDA President Rory Holmes.
Holmes points to the vital role filter products plays in everyday personal and business lives as a reason for the success of the event year after year, and especially in this challenging economic climate.
“Issues such as interior air quality, control of airborne diseases and illnesses, and greater efficiencies for industrial applications are topics that remain vital to individuals and businesses and Filtration 2011 will address all of these issues, and many more,” Holmes says. “The business of filtration is at the forefront of these challenges and they will certainly be topics of discussion at Filtration 2011.”
The exhibition will conclude tomorrow.
