Last year - which marked the first time the conference, expo, and training were co-located - drew 1,400 delegates and the training course sold out. Event organizer INDA, the Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry, expects over 1,500 delegates and exhibitors to connect at the exposition, and more than 30 delegates to attend the training.

The Conference event, one of the most important for air and water filtration professionals will provide everything needed to stay in the know about breakthroughs in the filtration industry. Key themes that will be covered include: Trends and Stats, Cutting Edge Technologies, Filtration Solutions, and Industrial Air Filtration.

Industry participants are looking forward to the event’s return to Chicago, where it is held biennially at Navy Pier, a top-visited destination along Lake Michigan in the heart of the Midwest, offering a myriad of nearby restaurants and attractions for entertaining and making connections.

“Filtration 2015 will once again deliver on its promise of ‘Pure Opportunity’ by bringing together high-quality educational program content, training, product displays and connection opportunities in one location to advance the success of filtration professionals,” said INDA President David Rousse.
