The second edition of a unique three-day networking conference and exhibition will examine the latest Latin American developments in the nonwoven personal care, absorbent hygiene, and nonwoven medical products industry.
The first two days of the conference and tabletop display exhibition, March 7-8, offer an economic overview of the Latin American nonwoven markets, the absorbent hygiene markets and technologies, and disposable hygiene markets. The third day, March 9, caps the event with a focus on the growing Latin American wipes market, nonwovens in healthcare and infection prevention, and perspectives in converting technologies.
Keynote presenter, Welber Barral, Ph.D., chairman of the Brazil Industries Coalition and former Brazilian Secretary of Foreign Trade, leads the conference with a presentation on the advantages and barriers to conducting business in Brazil and shares his incisive view on Brazil’s changing political environment and its impact on growth and investment attractiveness.
“This second edition of the Outlook Plus Latin America conference highlights the opportunities and potential for growth across the Latin American nonwovens industry, particularly for the personal care, hygiene and medical products industries. In organizing this conference, we are keen to highlight not just the potential but also the resilience of the Latin American nonwovens markets, which highlight the opportunities beyond Brazil, the traditional market regional leader, and into the broader nonwovens supply chain,” says Pierre Wiertz, general manager of EDANA.
“This is a must-attend event for anyone involved in the growing market for hygiene and personal care products in Latin America,” says Dave Rousse, INDA president. “Building on our successful 2015 event, this gathering of industry professionals will discuss key elements for success in these markets.”
