The show will cover a range of innovations from across the nonwovens sector including key areas such as automotive, geotextiles, medical nonwovens, filtration, packaging and hygiene. Around 13,000 visitors are expected to attend the show, 70% of whom will typically be decision-makers within their respective companies.
