IOP cosponsors barrier film and stand-up pouches events

IOP: The Packaging Society is cosponsoring two conferences addressing essential topics for the packaging industry: Barrier Film and Stand-up-Pouches. These events, organised by EPN conferences, take place in Brussels on 21-23 February.

Barrier Film, on 21-22 February, will examine both the business and technical concerns of the barrier market, not only in Europe, but also across the globe. Delegates will be able to learn first-hand from across the supply-chain about current research into plastic films for flexible barrier packaging, and hear from suppliers, research institutes, converters and end-users about the new developments in barrier properties and their market applications. Presenters will also explore the hard realities in terms of cost and market share.

Stand-up-Pouches, on 23 February, will look at the market for stand-up-pouches, which is experiencing strong success. This event will be the first forum in Europe for this exciting area of the packaging market. Presentations will examine the technical developments in pouch design and construction as well as the latest market analysis of branding.

IOP: The Packaging Society and IOM3 members are entitled to a discount for registration at this event.
