2018 edition of AMI's international Stretch & Shrink Film conference will take place on 16-18 April 2018 at the Melia Castilla Hotel, Madrid, Spain.
This will be the 15th time AMI has run a conference dedicated to this industry and since its launch Stretch & Shrink Film has established itself as the forum where the industry meets to discuss key trends and market features influencing business developments and profitability. The event regularly attracts all the key players from across the whole supply chain from within Europe as well as globally which typically represents over 2 million tonnes of polymer purchase. In addition to film producers, the audience includes raw material suppliers, distributors, machinery producers, end customers, investors etc.
The two-day programme
will cover the latest technical developments and market trends in this dynamic
sector. The conference sessions will be complemented by a focused table-top exhibition and
plenty of networking opportunities, including an evening cocktail reception and
the conference dinner.
Currently, many millions of
euros are lost annually as a result of goods becoming damaged in transit. This
trend has been on the increase as a result of downgauging across all levels of
packaging (i.e. primary, secondary and tertiary) which can have a serious
impact on the overall load stability. Companies need to understand that it is
the optimisation of the overall
packaging system that is critical to the safe transport of palletised goods.
The benefits of using stretch and shrink films for transport and the point of
sale marketing are clear and quantifiable in monetary terms thanks to the reduced
damage of goods, compliance to the road safety standards, and the increased
sales resulting from products’ greater visual appeal and brand positioning. Yet,
many brand owners are not fully aware of the real value these packaging systems
can bring to their business. As the industry continues to educate brand owners,
they will increasingly seek a specialist advice from their suppliers and
industry consultants to help them optimise their transport packaging systems
and logistic operations.

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.
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 programmes. 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 programme.
Can I give a paper at an AMI Conference?
Naturally AMI welcomes offers of papers 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 to present a paper at a specific conference.
