Comments from previous NHPA delegates

"This conference is one of the best global networks for high-performance nonwovens regarding technique diversity and worldwide origins. I was surprised again this year about the active innovation results which each manufacturer or machine companies has demonstrated during the conference. New materials are sometimes coming from nonwovens to create new structures, taking advantages of nonwovens but sometimes to reach a new construction and new performances.

SAVE THE DATE:  10-11 October 2018: Fourth International Conference on Nonwovens for High-performance Applications, Cannes, France

We are pleased to announce the date and venue of the Fourth International Conference on Nonwovens for High-performance Applications.

Following the success of this year's event in Prague, we are holding the next conference at the Novotel Cannes Montfleury in Cannes, France, on 10-11 October 2018.


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

Conference Venue & Hotel Booking form
