With an ever-increasing focus on the impact plastics have on the planet, the entire plastics supply chain, including product designers and brand owners, are coming under increasing pressure to create products that have minimal impact on the environment and with their end-of-life in mind.
”A very useful conference... with excellent speakers throughout."
Consulting Engineer, LM WINDPOWER

Berlin is a global centre for the creative industries, celebrated for its design tradition and contemporary creations. The city has demonstrated remarkable social, economic and cultural achievements in the field of design, and the open-minded atmosphere provides the ideal framework for internationally-recognised trade fairs, festivals and platforms, all of which promote international exchange.
Berlin is one of 180 global cities within the UNESCO Creative Cities Network. This network works together towards placing creativity and cultural industries at the heart of their development plans at the local level, and cooperating actively on an international level, as a strategic factor for sustainable development.
One example of Germany's crossroad of diverse backgrounds and histories, this year Berlin is celebrating the centenary of Bauhaus - a school of design and a field for experimenting in the free and applied arts, design, architecture and education. In post-war Germany, it ushered in a new way of thinking that inspired a break with traditional ideas and old ways of life.
