AMI announces the launch of a new international conference, Breathable Films 2018, taking place 7-8 March 2018 at the Maritim Hotel in Cologne, Germany. This brand-new conference brings together industry-elite speakers from the entire supply chain to evaluate and discuss the trends, challenges and opportunities facing the breathable films industry, across multiple end-use applications.
Having a micro porous structure that is crucial for vapor transmission, breathable films have major applications in the building & construction, pharmaceutical, medical, industrial, food packaging & processing, personal care & hygiene and even clothing sectors. Driven by a growing awareness of health and hygiene, an increase in demand for premium hygiene products, the growing construction industry and massive opportunities for food contact applications, the breathable films market looks to expand steadily over the next 5 years.
Breathable Films 2018 covers developments and innovations in raw material characteristics, machinery, testing techniques, film formulation, extrusion & processing technologies as well market trends continuing to facilitate cost reduction without compromising film performance and safety criteria. The conference focuses on the latest global trends and technical developments within the industry and looks at the polymers & additives mainly used in breathable films such as polyethylene, polypropylene, polyurethane, PTFE amongst others.
Breathable Films 2018 provides an international forum for all companies involved in the manufacture, supply and specification of breathable films, be they end users, manufacturers, converters or suppliers. In addition to the busy programme of presentations from leading stakeholders in the market, the conference offers high level networking opportunities in a focused exhibition area featuring displays from a range of suppliers.
Overall, this event affords an ideal opportunity to meet with like-minded professionals to learn, network and discover new business opportunities.

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.
