OUTLOOK™ PLUS LATIN AMERICA 2019 KEEPS ITS MOMENTUM

The two global nonwoven trade associations, EDANA and INDA, supported by ABINT, the Brazilian Association of Nonwoven Industries, closed the third edition of The OUTLOOK™ Plus Latin America conference in São Paulo, Brazil, thanking over 215 business professionals for their continued support and encouragement.

Opening the conference, keynote presenter Walter Barral, Ph.D., outlined the challenges and opportunities in the political and economic environment within Brazil and the Mercosur Region.

The conference focused two days on the hygiene and personal care sectors, and one day on the filtration and medical sectors. Several speakers discussed the regional opportunities in the hygiene markets and emphasized the impacts to the nonwoven market from retail trends to the current economies in both Brazil and elsewhere on the continent. Consumer demand for product innovation as well as an aging demographic were identified as the catalysts for incontinence market increases.

More than 215 participants heard 31 speakers, visited 18 company tabletop exhibits, experienced three days of organized programming, two evening receptions, and scheduled coffee breaks to connect and advance business.

“INDA and EDANA’s joint vision to promote the sustainable growth of the nonwovens and related industries has again taken us together in this region…” said Pierre Wiertz, General Manager of EDANA.

“INDA is pleased to once again join with EDANA and ABINT to develop a meaningful event for the major nonwoven sectors growing in this important region.” said Dave Rousse, President of INDA.

“OUTLOOK™ Plus Latin America 2019 brought again to Sao Paulo a very good mix of presentations, many of which came from local companies or Brazilian representatives of international players and we were delighted to support EDANA and INDA with the recruitment and selection process of speakers.” said Carlos Benatto, President of ABINT.

 “It was the second time I attended the OUTLOOK Latin America conference in Brazil. It exceeded my expectations in terms of the quality of the content, and the networking during the breaks, and the tabletop exhibition… There is an overall better understanding of what the consumer wants and needs. I look forward to the next edition.” said Rita Cerveira, Market Developer, ExxonMobil Química (Brazil).
