Inaugural RISE Award to recognize durable products

Feb '11
The nomination process is now open for an innovative new industry award – the RISE Durable Products Award – that will be presented at the Research, Innovation & Science for Engineered Fabrics (RISE) Conference in October.

The inaugural RISE Durable Product Award will be awarded to a durable product using nonwoven fabric and/or technology that is commercially sold and utilized in the consumer or industrial marketplace. It will be presented at RISE 2011, which will take place from October 3-6, 2011 at the Sheraton Raleigh Hotel, Raleigh, N.C. RISE is organized by INDA, Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry.

Now in its second year – the premier RISE Conference took place last September in Baltimore, Maryland – the goal of RISE is to provide information and stimulation for both durables and disposables companies looking for strategies to compete in an increasingly challenging 21st century marketplace.

Nominations for the inaugural RISE Durable Product Award must be received by July 15.

Categories such as raw material, roll goods, converting, packaging, active ingredients, binders, additives and end product will be considered for nominations. The finalists for the RISE Durable Product Award will present their innovation to the industry during RISE 2011 and the winner will be selected by RISE attendees and announced on October 6.

“Since the early days of the nonwovens industry, our products have played a significant role in the growth of a host of durable products categories and it is appropriate that the best of the best be recognized for their contribution to this business,” says INDA President Rory Holmes. “Similar to other industry awards sponsored by INDA, the recipient of the RISE Durable Product Award will be selected by attendees at the conference.”

The target audience for the annual RISE Conference ranges from product managers, technical sales and marketing executives to product engineers, purchasing managers and research engineers at both consumer and industrial products companies.
