TAPPI PLACE Conference Promotes Flexibility

NORCROSS, GA | Staying up-to-date on the advances and changes in consumer packaging is a must. Without knowing the current influences of consumer needs on new packaging designs, functionality and performance, it is easy to overlook market opportunities to improve your business.

And, one way to learn all about the latest “Innovations in Flexible Consumer Packaging” is by attending the 2008 TAPPI PLACE Conference, which will be held Sept. 14-17, 2008, at the Renaissance Portsmouth Hotel in Portsmouth, VA. The program will feature more than 65 technical presentations, and keynote addresses on Sustainability by Keynote Speakers Drew Gilchrist, VP of sales, Vanguard Packaging & Display; and A.J. "Tony" Burns, associate director, Procter & Gamble Co.

The TAPPI PLACE Conference also will feature a “New Technology Showcase,” where attendees can expand their knowledge of new products and meet face-to-face with representatives from a long list of suppliers. A “Sustainability Workshop” will explain how sustainability will affect your customers or your bottom line. Attendees can also visit here to learn about the latest developments in food safety and regulatory issues that are constantly changing and requiring continual updates; learn and discuss practical applications and information related to the use of renewable polymers and look at case studies for sustainability and flexible packaging; hear technical presentations on new packaging requirements and designs, such as active and smart packaging; learn about advances in solventless adhesives, aqueous coatings and primers, as well as the equipment used to apply and measure these materials; learn about new applications and innovations for web handling and winding to improve production and productivity of web forming, printing and converting lines; and more.
