The AFS have assembled a list of blue-ribbon speakers and topics; each relevant to the success of filtration media suppliers, filtration and separation product manufacturers or system producers." Osterhoudt went on to say "We designed this program specifically for management personal who must make critical decisions regarding the business direction at their company. We believe perspective attendees who review the program and associated abstracts on the AFS website and attend the conference, will come to the same conclusion as us; the opportunity for insight and new ideas are unmatched by any previous industry forum and clearly provides vision for new or enhanced company products, validation, market differentiation and accelerated growth."
