BRUSSELS - EDANA has announced that Outlook 2020, which takes place on 23-25 September 2020, will go online following the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The date for Outlook 2021 has also been confirmed with the event set to take place in Lisbon at the Corinthia Hotel on 21-23 April 2021.
For the last 15 years Outlook has gathered hundreds of professionals annually around high-level, thought provoking presentations, panels and workshops, while providing a unique networking setting for the whole value chain.
In the last couple of months, notes EDANA, the Covid-19 pandemic has forced people to change the way they work, think and interact with each other. "As an association committed to consistently provide the best services to its members and the industry in general, we have worked hard the past weeks and stepped out of our comfort zone to come up with creative solutions for our events," EDANA said.
With this year's conference moving online, each day a 3-hour webinar will feature a programme with keynotes speeches, presentations, Q&A and discussions. The recent development in the different nonwoven applications contributing directly in the fight against COVID-19, the industry’s efforts and the long-term plans regarding the European Union supply will also be part of the programme. The Whova app will be offered to allow maximum interaction and networking among participants.
Outlook 2021 will take place in Lisbon at the Corinthia Hotel on 21-24 April 2021, featuring a new session on healthcare and medical developments, a sector in which the role of nonwovens has been highlighted during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Those dates in Spring were chosen to allow enough time between the conference and INDEX 20, the leading nonwovens exhibition, that has been rescheduled to 7 – 10 September 2021.
Registration will be open next week with a special package for people registering for both OUTLOOK 2020 and OUTLOOK 2021.
