WHAT IS PETNOLOGY?
For many years, PETnology has served as an information platform for the international PET packaging industry. Since our first international PET Technology Conference in 2001, we have held another 20 PETnology conferences. PETnology Europe is an independent, neutral event platform. The conference is the practical expression of PETnology’s motto of “connecting comPETence”. The objective: promoting communication, bundling knowledge and providing information for the benefit of all segments of the value creation chain.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND THE CONFERENCE?
As an international technology platform, PETnology Europe covers all aspects of the value creation chain, from market reports to sustainability initiatives to machine technology for films, preforms, bottles, caps and labels, as well as recycling. Participants come from all areas of the PET-processing industry: suppliers, converters, packaging manufacturers, food and beverage producers.
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE ALL4PACK PARIS FOR YOUR NEXT PETNOLOGY CONFERENCE IN EUROPE?
The decision to hold the conference in Paris underlines the event’s increased internationalization. ALL4PACK and PETnology Europe are particularly well matched in terms of their focus, with ALL4PACK’s mission statements also playing a strong role in the PET process chain: packaging, printing, processing & handling solutions.
WHAT ARE THE ISSUES AND THE KEY TOPICS THAT WILL BE COVERED DURING THE CONFERENCE?
Naturally, we will shine a light on the technical and technological developments of thermoformed and stretch blow moulded packaging systems. The latest developments are a response to the omnipresent market requirements, in particular circular economy, sustainability, digitization and eco design. The general theme of technology is supported by networking, which functions like a catalyst by accelerating developments. More and more manufacturers of consumer goods, food and beverages are entering partnerships with packaging producers and recycling companies as well as environmental and humanitarian organizations. This is a response to the demands made in the markets for more environmentally friendly packaging and sustainable secondary use. PETnology Europe 2018 will be focusing on just that.
We are delighted that the PETnology Europe Conference is being held for the first time in France during ALL4PACK Paris (Comexposium Group).
Our organizations mutually pursue the same objective of quality and expertise for professionals in the packaging and intralogistics ecosystem.
We welcome participants to the conference and hope they will enjoy ALL4PACK and Paris. Welcome to France! Bienvenue à Paris!
