International conference on lightweight plastic tubs, trays, jars, containers and cups for food packaging
18 - 19 June 2013, The Westin Chicago North Shore, Chicago, IL, USA
Organized by Applied Market Information LLC (AMI)
AMI's Thin Wall Packaging 2013 will take place on June 18-19, 2013 at The Westin Chicago North Shore in Chicago, IL, USA. Thin Wall Packaging 2013 offers a unique networking opportunity for leading food companies, retailers, packaging manufacturers, researchers, and suppliers of the industry to debate the latest developments and market trends in lightweight plastics packaging.
Thin Wall Packaging like tubs, cups, pots, trays, clamshells and plastic jars, provides a means of supplying consumer appeal, convenience and product protection, whilst reducing the carbon footprint. Barrier properties can be tailored to the application by careful material selection to be cost-effective. Innovative designs are enabled by developments in manufacturing technology. Applications include margarine, yogurt, ice cream, meat, bakery, fresh fruit and vegetables. TV dinners are a rapidly growing market as households work harder: microwave, freezer and oven-proof containers are included in this sector.
Thin Wall Packaging 2013 will provide lively interaction and debate between the speakers and delegates, and give a comprehensive overview of the latest materials, technology and market trends in lightweight packaging.

We are unable to give refunds to delegates who cannot attend conferences because they fail the visa requirements of the country.
Does the conference program ever change?
AMI always does its utmost to avoid changes in advertised conference programs.

Can I give a paper at an AMI Conference?
Naturally AMI welcomes paper offers for presentation at our conferences provided such papers meet our quality and relevance requirements. Within each conference heading you will find a section on ‘Call for Papers’, which tells you what to do if you want to offer a paper at a specific conference.
I would like to suggest a new conference
We would love to hear from you. Contact our Sales and Marketing Manager, Mrs. Bobbie Linenberger, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have another question that has not been answered
Please mail it to Bobbie Linenberger, our Sales and Marketing Manager, who will do her best to answer it email@example.com.
What if I cannot attend an AMI event because of bad weather, industrial action, sickness or bereavement?
Unfortunately AMI cannot take responsibility for such problems. We recommend that you ensure that your travel plans leave you enough spare time to cope with weather delays or industrial action and that your travel insurance policy will recompense you for any financial loss that you suffer as a result of being unable to travel for other reasons. Remember that if you cannot attend an event then you can always send a colleague in your place at no charge.
