Over 600 packaging professionals are expected to attend a global pouch and flexible packaging event in June.

The Global Pouch Forum will be held in Miami in the US from 13-15 June, and is expected to attract end users, converters, and suppliers of materials, components, closure, and machinery for all types of pouches – including retort and aseptic.
 
Now in its 21st year, the Global Pouch Forum 2018 will feature:

  • non-commercial presentations on current and future market trends and applications
  • the business outlook for all pouch formats
  • production/ processing/ filling methods
  • relevant global issues facing pouches and flexible packaging.

Presentations will reflect brand owner, retailer, and consumer desires for shelf appeal, innovation, functionality, and consumer convenience, and strategies to respond to outside interest through innovation and technology.
 
The Global Pouch Exhibition and Networking Reception, to be held on 14 June, will feature packaging materials, components, and services of globally recognised converters, suppliers and contract packagers.

Program details, hotel information, sponsor, and exhibit opportunities can be found here.
