For those who can’t come to Geneva in person, and for the first time ever, INDEX™ will also include an interactive and immersive virtual platform. Visitors from anywhere in the world will be able to watch presentations, interact directly with speakers, exhibitors and other participants and even arrange live discussions together.

Follow the stimulating Sector Seminar Programme on-site. Composed of six free-to-attend half-day seminars covering highly innovative and enterprising sectors including Infection Prevention, Smart Nonwovens, Nonwovens and Sustainability, Geotextiles, Filtration and Transportation, each sector will feature a wide selection of eminent speakers discussing up to the minute topics in the field. Each one will take place live in Geneva and, in parallel on the virtual platform, where all attendees will be able to interact with speakers, participate in discussions and Q & A sessions.

Live visitors should explore the INDEX™ Innovation Lab, an entire zone dedicated to discovering at first-hand the depth of innovation and imagination in the nonwovens industry and its suppliers, aimed as an inspiration to us all.

So whatever happens, be it virtually or in-person, we will all be able to focus on meeting contacts old and new and enjoy learning from experts about the latest technologies in many fields. After a whirlwind of innovation and collaboration over the last 18 months, we can look forward to discovering what the future holds for our dynamically evolving industry.

With all this and more on show, we’re confident that INDEX™ will be a true celebration of all that the industry can create, and a demonstration of the glorious future ahead. We look forward to warmly welcoming you to Geneva, at last. No need to R.S.V.P – Register for INDEX™20!
