Learning from the PastInspiring the Future

TAPPI's 17th European PLACE Conference is the only biennial event in Europe focused on extrusion coating and lamination of webs and substrates. This year's conference focuses on sustainability and the social aspects of packaging, and latest trends, technologies and applications affecting coating and laminating, film extrusion and end use.

PLACE stands for Polymer, Lamination, Adhesives, Coating and Extrusion -- 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, position and importance of laminates and their applications. TAPPI follows strict anti-trust guidelines.

The value of the special format of this conference can be seen in the technology offerings in the papers and posters shown, as well as time for networking, and your opportunity to meet highly qualified experts throughout the value chain. Save money on your travel budget by meeting all this important expertise at once! All presenters are available for individual discussion and debate. Every TAPPI member is keen to pass on expertise in educational discussions for newcomers in this specific conversion segment and field of application. Make sure you don't miss out on this great opportunity to expose your valuable employees and colleagues to this concentrated pool of experience, actualities, and innovation.
