By ordinance entering into force on February 28, 2020, the Swiss Federal Council has prohibited all events in Switzerland bringing together more than 1,000 people.
In the current circumstances, the situation is qualified as a force majeure event.
As a result, taking into account the negative evolution of the situation, the Index 20, which will take place in Geneva/Switzerland, is postponed to October 20-23, 2020.
The world continues to discover the important role of nonwovens in protecting healthcare staff and patients through medical devices and personal protective equipment, such as surgical masks, respirators, gowns, drapes and coveralls. It is of course unfortunate that the biggest nonwovens trade show ever, with over 730 exhibitors and covering 24,700m², has had to be postponed.
