FTA EUROPE UPDATE
(Posted on 30/01/18)
On the 19th and 20th of October FTA Europe attended the Annual Forum of the Australian and New Zealand Flexible Packaging & Label Manufacturers Association (FPLMA) held at the Exhibition Centre of Melbourne.
FTA Europe President Sante Conselvan participated in a round-table discussion focused on education and skills. The debate, that also saw the participation of a FTA US delegation, was a fruitful event analysing the different aspects of the issue that is recognised as very current and global. The technical forum addressed future of packaging, new technologies, quality, and education and skills. At the end of an intensive two days of discussion, the two Best in Show companies, one for packaging and one for labels, were also awarded.
This year FTA Europe presented an overview and update of packaging in Europe; a sector of high fervour, as summarised by the key message of the Forum: Present and Future of Packaging – synergies, creative innovations, technology, personalisation, and attention to the changes of the society and its trends.
The participation in Australia concludes the overseas journey of FTA Europe for 2017. After the US and Brazilian Flexo Congresses, this latest attendance at the FPLMA Forum emphasises once more the progress of the European Association in being recognised as a stable and valuable partner by the flexo community worldwide.
