In the odd years the event is held in Europe and in the even years it is held in North America. In addition to the conference the division supports an annual Extrusion Coating Course and partners with BNP Media each year to conduct a Stand-up Pouch Workshop prior to the Global Pouch Forum in the summer.
The Teams of the International Flexible Packaging and Extrusion Division work together throughout the year to solve problems, develop technical papers, plan conference sessions, and more.
Each year, the International Flexible Packaging and Extrusion Division is proud to provide several awards.
