INDA, the Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry, announced a new date and location for its fifth annual Research, Innovation and Science for Engineered Fabrics (RISE®) Conference. The event will be held February 9-12, 2015, at Miami’s Downtown Hilton in Miami, Florida.
The RISE Conference date was formerly scheduled to be held September 8-11, 2014, in Atlanta and is rescheduled as a result of INDA’s acquisition of the INSIGHT International Conference from Marketing Technology Service, Inc. and its plan to integrate INDA’s VISION with INSIGHT in October 2015. This new venue and date for RISE were originally scheduled for INDA’s annual VISION® Consumer Products Conference.
Appealing to technology scouts and business/product developers in the global nonwovens and engineered fabrics industries, RISE will provide thought-provoking discussions focusing on technical innovations and applications that contribute to the creation of advanced competitive products. The conference will also announce the winner of the prestigious RISE Durable Product Award.
INDA’s acquisition of the INSIGHT conference has a significant impact on the event calendar for nonwovens and hygiene products overall. Below is a summary of these changes in the 2014-2015 conference schedules.
