Finalists selected for IDEA10 Achievement Awards
Feb '10
A total of 16 of the most innovative and successful new products in the nonwovens and engineered fabrics industries of the past three years have been nominated as finalists for the prestigious IDEA10 Achievement Awards. The finalists were selected from submissions in five separate categories and the winners will be announced during the IDEA10 International Engineered Fabrics Conference and Expo, April 27-29, 2010 in Miami Beach, Florida.

The IDEA10 Achievement Awards, co-sponsored by INDA, Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics industry, and Nonwovens Industry magazine, recognize the leading new products in five separate categories – Equipment, Raw Materials, Roll Goods, Short-Life End Product and Long-Life End Product – in the global engineered fabrics industry introduced since IDEA10.

“These IDEA Achievement Awards promote innovation and recognize outstanding achievement within the worldwide engineered fabrics community and it is fitting that they will be presented during IDEA10, the most important industry trade show of the year,” says Rory Holmes, President of INDA, the organizer of the triennial IDEA Conference and Exposition.

Matt Carey, publisher of Nonwovens Industry, points out that IDEA10 is an ideal venue for promoting and rewarding innovation in the industry. “We have been intimately involved in this industry for more than three decades, and this partnership with INDA allows us to recognize the individuals and companies that have made the industry what it is today,” Carey says.

The industry will select the recipients in each category through online voting beginning this week at both www.nonwovens-industry.com and www.inda.org. Voting will remain open through April 1.
