“We are expanding our vision for the future of our important Filtration Expo by providing industry participants from around the world with great new potential to exhibit, learn and meet with others in the industry at a global event in North America,” says INDA president Dave Rousse.
The Filtration International Conference & Exposition will now be held every 18 months, instead of once a year, for greater appeal to the global market and complement the timing of the major European filtration event. This means that after Filtration 2018 in Philadelphia this week, there will be no Filtration Expo in the fall of 2019, as it will jump to February 2020.
Another new change is the location--the event will be held exclusively at the Navy Pier in Chicago rather than rotating locations.
Also, the Filtration Expo will expand its focus beyond nonwovens and fully embrace the broad cross section of engineered media, filtration & separation technologies, filter making equipment, and other equipment related to the manufacture, testing and monitoring of filters and their environment.
“We believe these changes will position this event as a 'must attend' for global filtration industry companies needing a focal point in North America,” Rousse continues. “While filtration is a part of many industry shows, there is no other show in the U.S. dedicated exclusively to filtration. Filtration Expo will appeal across a broader spectrum of the filtration market, going beyond nonwoven media.”
