In addition, during the weeks leading up to the live event, observers and participants in the nonwovens industry will be able to view all the videos from the nominees posted on the indexnonwovens LinkedIn page as of Tuesday 8th September.

By watching the videos of their choice, visitors to the page will be able to participate in a special prize. The video which receives the most ‘Likes’ in total on the indexnonwovens page will be honoured with a special INDEX™20 ‘People’s Prize’, and voted the most liked industry innovation of this year.

All the Award winners’ and nominees’ submissions will subsequently be on display in the Nonwovens Innovation Lab, a new feature at the INDEX™20 exhibition, taking place at Palexpo in Geneva, from 7th- 10th September 2021, aimed at showcasing how invention and sustainability drive the industry forward.
