Today technology and marketing
play an increasingly important role in choosing the right packaging system. At
the same time brand owners are looking at the full packaging solution of their
products in which the role of closures is increasingly valued to improve
product differentiation, aesthetics and functionality.
Demand for innovative plastic
closures is growing fast in many end use applications driven by changing
consumer behavior and growing consumerism as well as by category
diversification thanks to brand owners’ evolving brand activity and by changing
packaging trends. Demand for premium brand opportunities is increasing too which
is strongly facilitated by plastics technology and system developments. As the
industry is becoming increasingly technology driven, caps and closures
producers have to innovate in order to protect and grow profitability.
The primary focus of technology
developments in closures production has been the increase of capacity and
efficiency a few years ago. Today technology improvements go beyond that.
Quality, precision and consistency are the main measures which deliver the
ultimate goal of increasing productivity. This change in emphasis opens up new
avenues in closure design and it acts as a spring board to make innovative,
high quality and added value products more affordable.
Plastic caps & closures is an attractive segment
characterised by solvent customers, raising barriers to entry and high growth
prospects for most applications. Whatever your involvement
in the plastic closures industry, be it brand owner or investor, plastic
closure producer, designer or material and technology supplier, Plastic Closure Innovations 2017 will
provide with an ideal opportunity to meet with like minded professionals, get
expert opinions on adding value and optimising results and debate key issues

What if 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.
Do I need a visa to enter a country where AMI is holding an event?
It is entirely possible that you may need a valid visa to enter a country where AMI is holding an event. This is especially the case for individuals attending our events and holding non-European passports. We recommend that at the time of booking you check the visa requirements with the embassy of the host country in your home location. We are unable to give refunds to delegates who cannot attend conferences because they fail the visa requirements of the country concerned.
Does the conference programme ever change?
AMI always does its utmost to avoid changes in advertised conference programs. However it is a fact of life that from time to time amendments have to be made as a result of changes to speakers’ circumstances or corporate change. Remember that you can always check with our conference staff on the latest status of any conference program.
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 present a paper at a specific conference.
I would like to suggest a new conference.
We would love to hear from you. Contact the Senior Conference Organiser, Rocio Martinez at firstname.lastname@example.org
I have another question that has not been answered.
Please mail it to the Senior Conference Organiser, Rocio Martinez, who will do her best to answer it: email@example.com
