Industry Relevance

index first entered the scene of the nonwovens industry in 1973 and the trade show is spaced at three-year intervals, which allows exhibitors and organizers to create a completely different event single time. What makes index so popular is the commitment to innovation and the fact it offers an exact snapshot of the industry and the multiple sectors across the processing chain. These are filtration; geotextiles and civil engineering; hygiene and cleaning; medical infection prevention; transportation and packaging. Within these sectors, there’s much to discover such as raw materials for nonwovens, spunlaid, superabsorbents, nonwoven machinery, binders, chemicals, composites, nonwoven converting machinery and waste handling equipment. We want to point you towards the additional training opportunities, tutorials and conferences that are part of the shows’ DNA.

Who Are You Going to Meet?

Exhibitors cover the full spectrum of the nonwoven industry – producers, converters, raw materials suppliers and machinery manufacturers. All these come with the intention of showcasing their best products and latest innovations that give them a competitive edge. The object is not only to show where the industry is heading, but also grow their market share and create name recognition. This attracts professionals that work both in technical and non-technical capacities at the highest levels.
