The purpose of the IFF Innovation Award is to inspire companies from all over the world not only to come up with great ideas, but to make them happen. The program is designed to recognize and promote the successes of these companies, and use their experiences as a means to encourage innovation throughout the specialty fabrics industry.
The competition is open to any company that has developed and manufactured an innovative specialty fabrics product. Entries are reviewed and evaluated by an expert panel of judges, who will select the winner. The award will be presented Oct. 27, 2011, at the closing banquet of IFAI Expo Americas 2011 in Baltimore, Md.
Applications for the 2011 IFF Innovation Award will be available in March 2011. For information, visit www.indfabfnd.com.
