INDA will present a brand new conference to the nonwovens industry in April. CAB 2012 expands on the conference formerly known as needlepunch to include a host of technologies used by the entire nonwovens industry, according to the organizers. In addition to needlepunch, the conference will cover spunlace, chemical, spray, foam bond, powder, stitch, thermal, through-air and ultrasonic bonding technology.

“The CAB conference will attract a larger, more diverse audience looking for information on and solutions for their bonding and converting needs,” says INDA president Rory Holmes. CAB will be held April 17-19 at the Hyatt Regency in Greenville, SC.

Highlights of the event will be a Bonding Tutorial, led by Holmes, a spunlace panel featuring executives from PGI, Jacob Holm and Suominen, a converting tutorial president by David Kessenich of Paper Converting Machine Company, a speed networking lunch as well as several tabletop and reception events and sessions on machinery technology, thermal technology and converting technology.
