IDEA16, a leading trade fair for the international nonwovens industry, received more than 7000 visitors from over 60 countries, the largest turnout ever received at its triennial event, which concluded recently in Boston.

A total of 555 companies displayed their products and services at three-day event, an increase of 15 percent over IDEA13.

“With the increase of 6 per cent in registrants, this provided the larger crowd with additional space to move about and comfortably interact with each other. The new Boston venue was well-accepted. We are all fortunate to be in a dynamic, innovation-driven industry with continued great prospects, as evidenced by the many announcements of new products, new machinery and new capabilities during the show,” said Dave Rousse, president, INDA, organiser of the event.

The IDEA16 achievement awards were also presented in partnership with Nonwovens Industry magazine, at the event. In the segment of online voting for the awards, ITW Dynatec’s Ultra Strand Coating System won in the equipment category, Jacob Holm’s SoftLite lightweight nonwovens won in roll goods category, and BASF’s SAVIVA SAP Technology won in the raw materials category.

The next IDEA event is expected to be held in Miami from March 26-28, 2019. (HO)
