INDA has announced that FiltXPO, the exhibition dedicated to filtration and separation, will now co-locate with IDEA, the triennial global nonwovens and engineered materials exposition, at the Miami Beach Convention Centre, in Florida. IDEA will be held from March 28-31, 2022, and FiltXPO will be held from March 29-31, 2022, as two different events.

FiltXPO brings a global platform to growing North American markets and features three-days of technical conference sessions with daily keynote addresses, and over 20 speaker presentations. Building off its successful 2020 inaugural event, the second edition is expected to attract 200 exhibitors and 2,000 professionals involved in the design, manufacture, sales, use or study of filtration and separation products, equipment, and services in North America. The co-location with IDEA will enhance the value of attending for all material science scouts and product developers, according to a press release by INDA.

FiltXPO is represented by industry sectors including water and wastewater treatment, petrochemicals, plastics, automotive, transportation, aerospace, chemicals and coatings, food & beverage production, biotechnology/pharmaceuticals, HVAC/indoor air quality, pulp & paper manufacturing, mining, oil & gas production, metal processing, industrial manufacturing, clean rooms, building management, and power generation.

FiltXPO technical conference sessions provide relevant, insightful information to aid in planning and decision-making, as well as concepts that add value to international filtration and separation research, development and commercialisation of the latest materials and manufacturing technologies. The FiltXPO audience includes senior-level engineers, R&D professionals, executive management, and supply chain management across multiple market sectors.

“We are moving FiltXPO out of a crowded 2021 to avoid a calendar collision with the World Filtration Congress (WFC) organised by the American Filtration & Separation Society (AFS). They needed to reschedule their event for September 2021, which is too close to the original FiltXPO 2021 dates in October. So, we’ll combine FiltXPO with IDEA in March 2022, significantly enhancing the value for more companies to exhibit and attend,” Dave Rousse, INDA president said
