AMI is announcing the launch of a new international conference Single-Serve Capsules 2017, which will take place 4-5 October 2017 at the Sofitel Kurfürstendamm Hotel in Berlin, Germany. This brand
new conference will bring together industry-elite speakers from the entire
supply chain to evaluate and discuss the trends, challenges and opportunities
facing the single-serve capsules industry.
From a niche market, single-serve beverage capsules have grown to be
one of the most important sub-applications of the ambient thin wall packaging
segment in the past 5 years. This dynamic market segment has a complex value
chain. There are a number of coffee brewing systems available with proprietary
capsule designs. With a number of brands pioneering the emergence of the
segment and achieving the highest machine instalment rates globally.
Nevertheless, the expiry of their design patents in 2012 brought about
disruptive changes in the supply chain. The changes created new opportunities
for both end-users and converters to tap into this growing market segment. On the other hand, the supply chain of
capsules is rapidly losing its oligopolistic nature and the former dominance of
major suppliers is challenged as the market expands. A more fragmented supply
chain affects the overall profit pool and the way consumers make their choices.
New opportunities include expanding product ranges into tea brewing
systems as well as cold drinks systems. While the untapped potential for cold
drinks is yet to be proven, it is telling how significant it might be with
global giants bidding for their space in this market.
With the growing number of capsules in landfills, the industry is under
pressure from environmentalists as well as more conscientious consumers. There
is an urgent need to review the materials used for capsules conversion in
search of more sustainable options, as well as to explore end-of-life solutions.
Material changes are likely to disrupt the supply chain even further.

What if 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 programs. 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 program.
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 ‘Calls for Papers’, which tells you what to do if you want to offer to present a paper at a specific conference.
