Speed Networking to attract 300 industry executives to Vision 2011
Oct '10
Vision 2011 Consumer Products Conference, January 10-12, 2011 at the Park Hyatt in Carlsbad, California will feature an ambitious, far-ranging program with topics as diverse as Brand & Market Strategy, Social Trend Forecasting and Boomer Demographics!

Celebrating its tenth consecutive year as the most important conference bringing together the worlds of consumer products and nonwovens, Vision 2011, organized by INDA, Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry, will once again focus attention on the role of nonwovens in consumer products ranging from diapers, feminine hygiene and incontinence products to filtration, wipes and other personal care items.

“The world of consumer products is constantly evolving and for the past decade the Vision Consumer Products Conference has kept the nonwovens industry and its related businesses up-to-date on these changes,” says Rory Holmes, president of INDA. “Attendees at Vision 2011 will have the opportunity to hear from some of the country's most respected experts on topics that will drive the consumer products and nonwovens industries for the next 10 years.”

One unique, new feature of Vision 2011 is “Speed Networking”. Described as “compressed networking in a low-pressure environment,” Speed Networking provides attendees a series of small group opportunities where each participant spends up to three minutes talking and sharing business cards before moving on to make additional connections in the next small group. The rest of the time at Vision serves to cultivate those contacts and develop them into credible relationships. Space is limited and pre-registration is required.

Among the highlights of Vision 2011:

• “The World Ahead: Global Trends Shaping the Future,” led by Paul Leinberger, SVP Global Accounts, The Futures Company.
• “Global Hygiene Trends,” presented by Pricie Hanna, of John R. Starr, Inc., will discuss new trends that are taking shape in the global hygiene market.
• “A Flushability Update – What Consumers Flush” led by
David Powling, Kimberly-Clark and chairman of INDA's Flushability Task Force.
• A final session on “Sampling, the Hot Targeting Tactic,” to be led by Kevin Burke, of Lucid Marketing.

A perennial highlight will be the prestigious 2011 Visionary Award, created to recognize the most innovative use of nonwoven fabrics used in a consumer product. Finalists will make presentations to Vision attendees, who then vote to choose the recipient of the 2011 Visionary Award – announced the final day of Vision 2011.

As usual, networking opportunities abound at Vision 2011 including two nights of Table-top Displays and Networking Receptions where the entire nonwovens/consumer products value chain will showcase their products, making it an ideal opportunity to reach current and potential new customers from around the world.
