OPLA will be jointly presented by EDANA, the international association for the nonwoven and related industries and INDA, the Association for the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry. The Latin American nonwoven event will focus on hygiene, medical and filtration and will take place over three days from 7 – 9 May 2019.

A full list of confirmed speakers for the conference can be found on event website. Conference topics include a Latin American perspective on the industry from brand owners and private companies and information about how Latin American products differ from other regions. There will also be sessions on incontinence and sustainability and discussions about design challenges and raw materials.

A full day will be dedicated to nonwovens in medical and filtration and the programme will also feature an in-depth look at the latest developments in nonwovens for the Latin American and global absorbent hygiene and personal care products markets. This will include expert local insight on the political environment, growth trends and the potential for nonwovens in this region.
