TAPPI European PLACE Conference Offers Valuable Educational and Networking Opportunities

TAPPI’s European PLACE Conference has a long tradition of bringing the European flexible packaging and converting industry together in remarkable settings to discuss the latest innovations and developments. The trend will continue at the 18th Biennial European PLACE Conference, 10-12 October 2022 in Bratislava, Slovakia.

Head to the banks of the Danube for an opportunity to hear from academicians and subject matter experts as they share the latest innovations, research and technology transforming the flexible packaging and converting industry.

This year’s conference program focuses on industry-shaping topics like recycling and sustainability; barriers; circulatory issues; extrusion coating; and paper and film-based solutions. There’s even a special Advanced Coatings Exchange session that showcases research from VTT, Rise AB and Aquapak. Start planning your conference agenda.

You also won’t want to miss the keynote address, ‘The Importance of Food-Grade Recyclates for the Circular Plastics Economy’ by Horst-Christian Langowski, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus, Technical University of Munich. Dr. Langowski is widely respected for his research and vast knowledge in the areas of food packaging and processing. As global awareness increases on the future of both consumables and packaging, Dr. Langowski will share his insight and experience that will both inform and inspire you.

European PLACE is the place to be this October to improve your knowledge in the areas of polymers, laminates, adhesives, coatings and extrusion. There’s still time to register for this year’s event, but don’t delay! You won’t have another chance like this until 2025.
