Educational event provided a unique networking and learning opportunity for local disposable hygiene producers

Bostik, a leading global adhesive specialist for industrial, construction and consumer markets,  recently sponsored a unique Smart Summit in Mumbai, India aimed at helping disposable hygiene producers achieve their growth objectives.

Bostik, in partnership with Hanwei Manufacturing, Loparex and Nordson, hosted the symposium on Saturday, June 4th. The one-day event focused on sharing disposable hygiene market knowledge and experience with Indian disposable hygiene producers. 

“In our experience, most disposable hygiene producers value the ability of their suppliers to share knowledge and expertise that they can use to help them achieve their business goals. Bostik’s Smart Summit is one way we are present in the local market to help our customers achieve better results”, said Diane Toonen, Bostik’s Global Strategic Director of Marketing for the Disposable Hygiene segment.

The Bostik Smart Summit featured information on the global disposable hygiene market, including market trends and product design across geographies, technical information about materials and machinery and best practices in product design and implementation. An open Q&A session with suppliers followed by networking and dinner concluded the one-day symposium.

Feedback was very positive from both customers and allied suppliers. “Our customers in attendance said the symposium provided a unique platform for learning and networking. They encouraged us to make it an annual event and praised both the content and the timing”, said Sophia Shen, Bostik Regional Marketing Manager, who presented the range of Bostik disposable hygiene solutions.
