2019 Miami IDEA Trade Show


IDEA 2019, held in Miami Beach, Florida, was a preeminent event for people working in the nonwovens & engineered fabrics industry. The triennial lDEA is one of the 3 largest non-woven exhibitions in the world, together with INDEX in Europe and ANEX in Asia, each of which is held every three years on a rotation schedule.

Most exhibitors at IDEA 2019 were non-woven fabrics manufacturers. There were only 2 or 3 garment producers on site, so the Medtecs booth really stood out. The top fabric suppliers, e.g. Berry, Wonderful, and Shenghung, were also present. We seized the opportunity to not only interact with as many exhibit attendees as possible for more sales opportunities, but also exchange market information with these suppliers. Compared with Heimtextil, we received fewer enquiries at IDEA 2019. However, most of these enquiries showed real interest and potential. Our BD team has been working non-stop on turning these enquiries into solid leads, and hopefully, future customers. Our goal is to expand Medtecs’ market presence in the United States, Canada and South America.

Due to the location of IDEA 2019, around 60% of the enquiries received were from North American and Mexican buyers who were interested mostly in our disposable product offerings such as disposable isolation gowns and disposable coveralls. The anti-smog hood, used mainly for protection against PM2.5 in the air, was on display for the first time at a trade show by Medtecs, and received a lot of attention, too.

Participation in ANEX 2018 and IDEA 2019 has opened our eyes to the rising popularity of disposable products among global medical suppliers. We look forward to another fantastic marketing and sales opportunity at INDEX 2020, to be held in Geneva next year.
