Palexpo, Geneva, Switzerland
Route Francois-Peyrot 30, Le Grand-Saconnex

INDEX in Geneva is where professionals can discover the latest developments in the global nonwovens market and form new business connections. Leading producers, converters, raw materials suppliers and machinery manufacturers offer innovative products for diverse applications. Discussions, seminars and presentations are devoted to the matters of circular economy, sustainability and recyclability in the world of nonwovens.

Being the largest nonwovens exhibition, INDEX covers everything from nonwoven machinery, adhesives, binders, chemicals and composites to surface treatments and waste handling equipment.

INDEX 2021 is scheduled on 7 - 10 September, as Palexpo SA and EDANA made the decision to postopne INDEX 20 in view of the COVID-19 pandemic and its implications. The critical role of nonwovens in ensuring the protection and safety of medical workers and citizens, both in the current situation and post-COVID-19, will be among the focus points of INDEX 2021.
