The stretch and shrink film industry is among the fastest growing and most dynamic flexible packaging segments in Europe.
AMI's Stretch & Shrink Film conference has established a position as the forum where the industry meets to discuss key trends and developments influencing business developments and profitability. At this year's conference, in addition to focusing on Europe, the conference will reflect the increasing globalisation of the stretch film market through the presentation of papers from outside the EU. There will be presentations from Novoroll Pack & Service in the Russian Federation, a perspective of the stretch film market from a major Turkish producer, Naksan Plastik, a view of the Asian stretch film market from the foremost stretch film producer in Asia, Thong Guan Plastics & Paper Industries, and an insight into trends and developments in the North American stretch film market from one of the leading US producers, AEP Industries. There will also be a paper from Sabic highlighting trends and outlook for PE Packaging films from the perspective of a global resin supplier.
With unprecedented stretch film capacity expansions forecast for Asia and the Middle East, it is vital that European producers interact with speakers and conference delegates from outside Europe in order to make the right strategic decisions concerning their own capacity installation plans based on the best information possible on the global market. This conference provides just such a forum.
Among the papers to be presented at Stretch & Shrink Film 2008 is information on newly developed metallocene resins from Ineos Polyolefins, high speed blown stretch film production from Davis-Standard, new winding developments from Gloucester Engineering and a discussion of the role of the distributor from Bulteau Systems, one of the largest and fastest-growing distributors in Europe.
Stretch & Shrink Film 2008 will be held at the Tryp Apolo Hotel in Barcelona, Spain, from 20-22 May 2008.
Whatever your involvement in the stretch & shrink film industry, be it raw material supplier, equipment manufacturer, stretch film producer, shrink film producer, converter or customer, this event will provide an ideal opportunity to meet with like-minded professionals and find out about the latest European business trends.
