Recap: Virtual IFAI Expo

Without a doubt, this year’s Virtual IFAI Expo was an experience like no other. In a first, the show shifted to a virtual gathering due to the pandemic. From show organizers to exhibitors to visitors, everyone worked tirelessly to make the industrial fabrics industry’s flagship show a success.

We hope you enjoyed the experience and were able to visit the Trivantage® booth. As a follow-up to the show, we have produced a New & Noteworthy brochure, with new and innovative solutions Trivantage offers to help you bring any project to life, from start to finish.
