Korea to host ANEX 2012

ANEX, one of the top three exhibitions in the nonwoven industry in the world will be held for the first time in Korea in June 2012.

Asia Nonwovens Exhibition and Conference (ANEX), which is held in rotation on a three-year cycle and is one of the top three exhibitions in the Nonwoven Industry along with IDEA in North America and INDEX in Europe, will be held at KINTEX from 13 to 15 June.

At the fifth edition of ANEX 2012, over 230 exhibitors from 25 countries and regions including Asia, Europe, North America and all over the world will present their raw materials and nonwovens production machinery & equipment in over 13,000 sqm of exhibition space at Exhibition Centre of KINTEX.

The global financial status is still not secure with crises in Europe and an economic recession in the US. Moreover, the Chinese economy is giving an indication of a slowdown while oil price and exchange rate volatility is extended. On top of that, we are expecting a big change in Korea, China, Russia and America because of presidential elections this year.

Even with all of these matters, starting with ANFA (Asia Nonwoven Fabrics Association), the nonwoven industry continues to try to turn the crisis into an opportunity. ANFA has been making a breakthrough by organising an exhibition that offers a B2B network and business market to bring improvement to the Asia Nonwoven Industry.

Based on the support from the INDA (Association of the North American Nonwoven Fabrics Industry) and EDANA (Association of the European Nonwoven Industry), ANEX 2012 is arranging country pavilions including Japan, China and Taiwan. In addition to many Korean companies, the world's major nonwoven companies have confirmed their participation at the exhibition in order to secure a better exhibition location.

Leading domestic corporations such as Toray Advanced Materials Korea, Hyosung Corporation, Korea Vilene Co. Ltd, Baiksan, Sam Hwa Machinery Co. Ltd, WELCRON, Kolon Industry, Kolon Glotech and foreign major companies including A. Celli Nonwovens, Andritz, Asahi Kasei Fibers Co., Avgol, Bostik, Dow Chemical, Exxonmobil, Fibertex Personal Care, First Quality, Freudenberg, Invista, Lenzing, Oerlikon, Reifenhauser REICOFIL GmbH & Co. KG, US Pacific will be attending the show. Over 80% of the exhibitors are from overseas. This clearly proves ANEX's high reputation as a leading international nonwoven business market.

Korea, the host country for ANEX 2012, is one of the world's top producers of chemical fibres and woven fabrics, and is ranked seventh in the fibre exporting industry. The nonwovens industry in Korea has shown steady growth by doing active research and development at a nonwoven industry specialised research centre and putting unremitting effort into the development of various uses for nonwoven fabrics.

Furthermore, as the world's textile industry has garnered attention due to the Korea - US free trade agreementand the Korea - EU Free Trade Agreement, the KOFOTI (Korea Textile Industry Leader) announced “2020 Development Vision towards Global Top 4 Textile Nation” on the anniversary of “2011 Textile Day”.

The Global Nonwovens Summit (GNS) and the ANFA Gatherings Fellowship will be held along with the exhibition. There will be earnest discussion with the theme “Population and Nonwovens” and the trends of new technology will also be dealt with in depth. It will help nonwoven industry colleagues to understand the flow of the world's nonwoven industry.
