If you are a producer, supplier, brand owner or consultant to this significant nonwovens sector, you will want to register soon for this essential event. The Renaissance Vinoy is a highly lauded conference venue and St. Petersburg in late October is a great place to gather,” said Dave Rousse, INDA president.
