INDEX 08 - Nonwoven textiles fair to be held in April

Feb '08
INDEX 08 exhibition is scheduled to be held on 15th-18th April 2008 at Geneva and organized by Edana.

Total number of visitors increased by 7.5% in comparison to INDEX 02 to just over 12'000 visitors. The geographical reach of the exhibition increased to attract visitors from 107 different countries worldwide.

INDEX 05 was the largest edition ever with 21'200 m2 of net stand space, occupying 50'000 m2 of exhibition hall. 470 exhibitors from 36 different countries from around the world were present showing all the latest developments in the nonwovens industry and representing all sectors of the nonwovens value chain.

Diversification of market confirmed:
Twice as many visitors said their company was involved in the automotive sector than in 2002 demonstrating the buoyancy of nonwovens in this particular sector.

We saw an increase from around 6% to almost 9% in both gas and liquid filtration sectors. Number of visitors operating in the construction field increased by an impressive 39%.

The percentage of visitors active in the agriculture and horticulture sectors almost doubled from 5% to 9.5%. However there remains a firm bedrock of visitors also present in the traditional sectors of hygiene and medical.

As expected, all the other targeted sectors such as carpeting, geotextiles, composites, electronics, fuel cell, home furnishing, cleaning and wiping, interlinings, nanotechnology, packaging, printing, protective wear, leather goods, technical textiles and others were very well represented.
