From: Stephen M. Warner, president and CEO Industrial Fabrics Association International
Dear Industry Professional,
It is my pleasure to invite you to participate in a dynamic gathering for our industry—IFAI Expo Asia 2011.
This event is at the new Marina Bay Sands Hotel and Exhibition Centre in Singapore 22-25 March, 2011. It is specifically organized to serve the rapidly growing specialty fabrics marketplace in the Asia-Pacific region.
There is a tremendous output and consumption of specialty fabrics in the Asia-Pacific region. The current trade shows in India and China focus almost exclusively on the disposable nonwoven industry. IFAI Expo Asia 2011 will now become the first major event in the region that targets as visitors the end-product fabricators who use all types of materials—woven, nonwoven, knit, and composite textiles.
IFAI Expo Asia 2011 will feature a trade exhibition, attracting as visitors three targeted audiences:
- Those who are involved in the supply chain seeking networking and partnership opportunities.
- The fabricators of finished products in applications such as construction, medical, automotive, safety, military, recreation, and structures.
- Those who have design, application, and market influence, such as government purchasing agencies, architects, and geotechnical, environmental and civil engineers.
More than two dozen trade associations have already endorsed this first-time specialty-fabrics industry gathering. And in addition to the trade exhibition, the four-day event will feature educational symposiums for 10 specific niche end-markets for specialty fabrics, including geosynthetics.
I hope you will join us at this international trade event that promises to be a lively marketplace for buyers and suppliers.
