2018 edition of AMI's international Stretch & Shrink Film conference took place on 16-18 April 2018 at the Melia Castilla Hotel, Madrid, Spain.
It was 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 attracted all the key players from across the whole supply chain from within Europe as well as global representatives from over 2 million tonnes of polymer purchase. In addition to film producers, the audience included raw material suppliers, distributors, machinery producers, end customers, investors etc.
The two-day programme covered the latest technical developments and market trends in this dynamic
sector. The conference sessions were 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.
