INDA releases World of Wipes program

The conference takes place in June and will address the changing role of post-pandemic baby wipes, sustainability and more

As the wet wipes industry adapts to product demands to protect consumers from Covid-related risks, industry experts will present the latest insights for advancing post-pandemic at the World of Wipes (WOW) International Conference.

The shift from “clean” to “safe” in the world of wipes will be among the key topics thought-leading speakers will address at the in-person event, June 27-30, at the Marriott Marquis in Chicago.

The information-packed program will tackle timely topics to support decision making on the following key themes: Circular and Sustainable Wipes, Supply Chain Challenges in Wipes, Nonwoven Substrates for More Sustainable Wipes, Trends in the Wipes Market and Among Consumers, Disinfection Concerns and New Technologies, Sustainable Wipe Packaging Trends and Developments in Flushability Issues.

Impacted by Covid, last year’s event attracted 475 professionals from around the world to attend in Atlanta, and INDA is anticipating another enthusiastic industry response for its 16th conference edition that is exclusively focused on the wipes sector.

Speakers will focus on the future of the $17 billion wipes sector amid changing consumer trends, supply chain complexities, sustainable packaging demands, and medical disinfection challenges, among other sessions.
