Flexible packaging experts to converge in Europe for AMI conference

The Asia Pacific region is one of the most exciting and dynamic markets for flexible packaging in the world and the signing of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement is expected to create further opportunities for packaging manufacturers and suppliers particularly in South East Asia.

Singapore, one of the signatory countries of the free trade deal, is playing host to AMI’s third Specialty Packaging Films Asia conference, being held from 15 -17 March 2016 at the Swissôtel The Stamford in Singapore. The extensive programme will cover the very latest innovations in raw materials and film technology to meet the demands of customers in Asia and beyond, as well giving delegates an understanding of how the industry is evolving and the possibilities that are emerging from these developments. AMI Consulting will open with a review of the latest trends shaping new market opportunities.

Sustainable consumption is a high priority across the supply chain, according to AMI and at the conference, Nestlé will discuss the brand owner’s perspective on the use of flexible packaging for maintaining product integrity and safety whilst enabling the reduction of food and packaging waste. Playing a part in this are innovations in speciality films, coatings and barrier properties to improve shelf life and Cosmo Films, Sealed Air, Milliken and Michelman amongst others will explore these areas in more detail. End of life options for packaging will also be examined with presentations from Starlinger and Dow Chemical.

Reifenhäuser Blown Film and Mamata Extrusion Systems will show how their blown film line technologies combine the properties of different polymer materials for the production of customized, economical and source optimized films. Cast film developments for specialty applications will be shown by Futamura Chemical and Scientex Great Wall while Singapore’s Institute of Materials Research and Engineering will look at advanced polymer composite packaging.

AMI’s Specialty Packaging Films Asia is relevant for all members of the supply chain including brand owners, retailers, packaging companies, researchers, materials and manufacturing experts. In addition to delivering quality papers, the conference also offers superb and cost-effective networking opportunities with its extensive table top exhibition area.
