Shrinking Sleeves and Barrier Bottles

Barrier PET Bottles and Advances in Shrink Sleeves, associated events for material producers, brand-owners and packaging specialists, are being supported by the Institute. The former runs from 22-23 May, while the one-day Advances in Shrink Sleeves takes place the following day. Both will be held in the same Brussels hotel, and are organised by PRW and European Plastics News.

Barrier PET Bottles is unique in its focus solely on barrier technology for PET bottles. Presentations will cover the global market, a converter’s perspective, closures, recent developments in the sector, and consumer taste tests. The event will also cover packaging for specific contents, such as carbonated soft drinks, oxygen-sensitive drinks and dairy products.

Digital printing, materials selection, application technology and PLA films will all receive dedicated coverage at Advances in Shrink Sleeves. Speakers include Niklas Olsson, Global Brand Manager of XSYS Print Solutions and Sales Director of Decorative Sleeves Jon Cowan.
