Plans underway for INTC, IDEA10.

INTC 2008 will feature a full-day Nonwovens Enhancements session focusing on Coloring and Finishing of Nonwovens. The 2008 International Nonwovens Technical Conference (INTC will be held September 8-11, 2008, at the Hilton Americas in Houston, TX.

INTC, co-sponsored and organized by INDA, Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry, and TAPPI, Technical Association of the Pulp and Paper Industry, annually brings together hundreds of technical executives from all aspects of the nonwovens, textile and paper markets. It features presentations from dozens of researchers and experts from around the world during the four days of technical sessions, tutorials and networking.

The Nonwovens Enhancements session is co-sponsored by INDA and AATCC and will feature industry experts explaining the technologies and complexities of enhancing nonwoven fabrics. The one-day session will focus on innovative structure technology, coloring and printing techniques, performance finishes and surface treatments for product enhancement. A similar joint session was successfully held for the first time three years ago at INTC 2005.

In other news, exhibitor confirmations for IDEA10 continue at a record pace as INDA puts special emphasis on identifying and recruiting "green" companies that make sustainability and energy efficiency part of their corporate philosophy and product development. The IDEA10 International Engineered Fabrics Conference and Expo, scheduled for April 27-29, 2010 in the Miami Beach Convention Center in Miami Beach, FL, will once again bring together all links of the global supply chain for products and services, including raw materials, machinery/equipment, engineered fabrics, converted products and services.

In 2010, the event, held in the U.S. every three years, will place a special emphasis on how the industry's companies are adapting to and solving today's energy challenges around the world.
