INDA accepts nominations for 2009 Visionary Award
May '08
The nomination process for the prestigious 2009 Visionary Award is now open to the global nonwovens and consumer products industries.

INDA, Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry, which sponsors the annual award, will be accepting nominations through September 1. Now in its eighth year, the award recognizes consumer end products that utilize nonwoven fabrics or employ nonwoven technology during their manufacturing process.

The 2009 Visionary Award will be presented at VISION 2009, which returns to New Orleans January 26-29, 2009 at the Sheraton Canal Street, site of the original VISION Conference in 2002.

The process and criteria for the 2009 Visionary Award are simple:
1. The finished consumer end product must contain a nonwoven fabric or utilize a nonwoven technology during its manufacturing process.

2. The consumer product has to have been introduced to the trade or to consumers in 2007-08.

3. The product can not have been selected as a finalist in any previous Visionary Award competition.

4. Companies can nominate their own products. While any number of products can be nominated, only one product per company will be selected as a finalist.

Finalists will be selected at the TAB meeting prior to the International Nonwovens Technical Conference in Houston, Tex.

Products will be judged on their novel use of nonwoven technology, as well as on their consumer and trade acceptance.

Eligible consumer product categories include disposable diapers, feminine hygiene products, adult incontinence products, household wipes and home filters, among others.
