Learning from the PastInspiring the Future

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 TAPPI European PLACE Committee is please to announce its next biennial conference on 20 - 22 May 2019 in Porto (Portugal).

This conference is the only conference in Europe which focuses on extrusion coating and lamination of webs and substrates.

PLACE stands for Polymer, Lamination, Adhesives, Coating and Extrusion -- it's the place where technical exchange occurs through papers, posters, table tops and a variety of discussions and debates. The biennial conference covers latest technologies and societal subjects around the make, the position and the importance of laminates and their applications. TAPPI is following anti-trust guidelines strictly.

The value of the special format of this conference is to be seen in the technology lay out with the papers and posters shown, but as much on the breaks and your opportunity to meet highly qualified experts throughout the value chain. Use the place for networking and saving your travel budget by meeting all important expertise at once! All presenters are available for individual discussion and debates. Every TAPPI member is keen to pass on expertise in educational discussions for newcomers in this specific conversion segment and field of applications. Make sure you expose yourself or your valuable employees and colleagues to this concentrated pool of experience, actualities and auxiliary innovations.

The conference team would appreciate your participation. Join within your peers as …
