FiltXPO, North America’s only exposition and technical conference dedicated exclusively to the filtration and separation industry, will be co-located with IDEA in Miami Beach 29–31 March 2022 to avoid conflicting with other filtration events that were originally planned in 2021. FiltXPO then returns to an 18-month schedule and will next take place 10–12 October 2023, at Navy Pier, Chicago.

Following IDEA 2022, the event will next take place 23–25 April 2024. Both the 2022 and the 2024 events will be held as live, in-person events at the Miami Beach Convention Center in Florida. 

The last time IDEA was held in 2019 it broke all attendance records. INDA expects the 2022 edition to attract several thousand senior-level buyers and attendees from over 60 countries and several hundred exhibitors from a myriad of industry sectors.

Dave Rousse, INDA president, said: “This new schedule, approved by the INDA Board, responds to the new findings in event research, developments in Asia, and to the need for our industry members in North America and beyond to create more opportunities to showcase their offerings, make new connections, and grow their businesses. He added: “Establishing this new timing for IDEA and returning FiltXPO to its original cycle aligns with our industry’s needs to continue the growth of the nonwovens industry and establish its global leadership and versatility in delivering essential, environmentally-responsible materials and products.”
