18th Biennial TAPPI European PLACE Conference

18 - 20 October 2021

The 18th Biennial TAPPI European PLACE Conference will be held in Bratislava, Slovakia. Bratislava is located on the banks of the Danube river with its famous old town, baroque façades, gothic towers, renaissance arcades, and its castle nestled high above the city.

Bratislava is the small and beautiful alternative between its cosmopolitan sisters, Vienna in Austria and Budapest in Hungary, which have already been host locations of TAPPI European PLACE conferences in 2005 and 2009.  Bratislava is just an hour drive by car or train from the Vienna Airport, a European hub and connection to the world.

Abstracts are now being accepted.

The Crowne Plaza Hotel in Porto welcomed over 100 people from 19 different countries to the 17th Biennial TAPPI European PLACE Conference.  The rich technical program included topics such as Barrier Performance, Adhesion and Adhesives, Feedblock Die and Curtain, Sealing Performance and Sustainability Solutions (just to name a few).  Attendees enjoyed networking with friends and colleagues at the Welcome Reception on Monday and Poster Session and Tabletop Reception on Tuesday.  Following the Tabletop Reception all attendees were transported by bus to the famous Palacio Da Bolsa in downtown Porto for dinner in the historic Arabian Room. 

The European PLACE event is the only event of its kind in Europe that focuses on Polymers, Laminations, Adhesives, Coatings and Extrusion.  Speakers include not only experts from the industry, but many leaders from universities.  To get a better idea of the activities at the event, feel free to browse the photos at the link below, and watch for details on the next European PLACE event to take place in the spring of 2021.  This is truly a unique opportunity to engage in not only technical sessions, but enjoyable networking.
