2019 European PLACE Conference

The European PLACE Conference is the only biennial event in Europe focused on the Extrusion Coating and Laminating Industry. The 17th TAPPI European PLACE Conference will focus on sustainability and the social aspects of packaging, latest trends, technologies and applications affecting the coating and laminating, film extrusion and end use.

The conference will take place 20-22 May 2019 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Porto, Portugal. Best known for its river, the Douro, and its port, Porto is a city with rich history and beauty. As one of the oldest cities in Europe, you will find a maze of steep and narrow cobbled streets as you discover beautiful plazas, churches and houses with colorfully tiled facades. Culture and business go hand in hand...and only the sky is the limit.
