10-11 October 2018: 4th International Conference on Nonwovens for High-performance Applications, Cannes, France

Following the success of the previous three conferences held in France and the Czech Republic, the latest edition of this conference series took place 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

The conference brings together senior managerial, technical and marketing staff from nonwovens manufacturers, suppliers to the industry, converters/finishers, product designers and processors, application sector OEMS, researchers and end-users from all around the world to discuss progress and possibilities. 

The conference series offers ample networking facilities via the exhibition area and evening reception, as well as during the breaks and lunches, which previous delegates have found invaluable.
