The International Conference on Nonwovens for High-performance Applications is a high-level, commercially focussed symposium which addresses the issues of entering and expanding in the advanced nonwovens market.

This conference is a unique symposium designed to inform delegates about latest technical developments and opportunities offered from technical nonwovens for high-performance applications. 

  • Commodity nonwovens are an established technology, with increasing competition from low-cost producers
  • The use of nonwovens for high-performance applications is a growing area and one with high returns
  • Companies are restricted from growing or even entering these markets because they lack the necessary skills to develop new markets and new manufacturing techniques
  • This meeting informs the audience of those areas needed to address to achieve this aim, with examples of successful transitions, discussion of the best markets to choose, as well as presentations of new technologies, manufacturing techniques and materials

2017 dates announced

We are pleased to announce that the Third International Conference on Nonwovens for High-performance Applications will be held on 7-8 March 2017 at the Novotel Praha Wenceslas Square in Prague, Czech Republic.

Speakers from senior positions in some of the most influential companies in this sector from around the world will gather in Prague to present to delegates.
