The World of Wipes® (WOW) International Conference attracted a record number of wipes industry professionals from the entire wipes value chain at the annual conference held in Minneapolis, MN, June 2-5. The eighth annual WOW conference highlighted presentations from renowned industry speakers on the $6 billion wipes industry and included round-table discussions, market analysis, receptions, exhibit displays and the announcement of the prestigious World of Wipes Innovation Award.
