EDANA and Palexpo confirm dates of INDEX™ 23 and triennial frequency beyond 2023
31st March 2022 – Brussels - In times of uncertainty and questioning for the future of industry events, the Board of EDANA and Management of Palexpo wish to reiterate their vision and announcements for INDEX™ exhibitions in 2023 and beyond.
As already announced, INDEX™23 will take place from 18-21 April 2023 in Geneva.
Regarding future exhibitions, “results of surveys among members of EDANA and INDEX™20 exhibitors, after the outstanding show last October, have clearly shown a strong preference of our customers for the continuation of our triennial frequency” said Pierre Wiertz, General Manager of EDANA.
“We have heard our key stakeholders’ voice, and the leading position of INDEX™ among global nonwovens exhibitions gives us full trust in the industry’s favourable response to both INDEX™23 and INDEX™26”, said Michael Staal Axelsen (CEO at Fibertex Personal Care), Chair of the EDANA Board.
Exact dates for the 2026 edition will be announced later, but Palexpo and EDANA are confident in the traditional positioning of the exhibition in the spring.
Magali Fakhry, Exhibition Director at Palexpo concludes: “It is always comforting to see the drive from past exhibitors to re-book their stand as early as possible for the next edition 3 years ahead, -an interval which of course this time, under the circumstances, is shorter for the 2023 edition.”
“The 3 year-cycle provides an ideal frequency to keep the momentum and eagerness for visitors and exhibitors alike to live the unique INDEX™ experience, reconnect with their business contacts and rediscover Geneva’s scenery again. We are looking forward to welcoming them again in April 2023 and early spring 2026”.
