The PLASTICS Packaging Summit, produced by the PLASTICS Industry Association (PLASTICS) in association with Chemical Data and ICIS, brings equipment manufacturers, materials suppliers, processors, retailers and brandstogether to address common challenges facing the packaging industry.
This year's summit is divided into four main components:
Technology: Learn how new technology is making plastics packaging more recyclable to more easily meet your bold sustainability goals; plus, hear how RFID, QR Codes, and EAS can improve the overall experience of your consumers.
Business Readiness: Future-proof your business with in-depth industry forecasting, updates on key regulatory and legislative activity, real world examples, and proven workforce retention and development strategies.
Sustainability & Recycling: Gain a better understanding of circularity, sustainable business practices, and how to increase recycling.
Join PLASTICS’ Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Packaging Materials Committee (FDCPMC) for a day of educational programming about developments in the regulation and analysis of packaging materials.
This fall’s program will include an update from the U.S. FDA, a deep dive into per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), updates on the regulation of plastic materials in the European Union and California, and more!
FDCPMC’s program will provide a unique opportunity for industry to interact and collaborate with individuals from government and the scientific fields. Don’t forget about our members-only business meeting, featuring valuable updates on the regulation of packaging materials worldwide, and a networking reception.
If you influence packaging decisions or produce packaging materials this the place to be!
