Flexible Packaging Europe (FPE), the association of flexible packaging manufacturers, is organising a new industry event, the ‘European FlexPack Summit’, targeting converters and users of flexible packaging.

The first running of the event will take place from the 24 to 26 February 2025 in Barcelona and will cover a range of topics relating to global market developments, trends, sustainability issues and current European legislation.

As outlined by FPE, flexible packaging has faced many challenges in recent years and is increasingly subject to new regulations that influence its future use. Despite this, the organisers content that an event specifically related to this sector focusing exclusively on flexible packaging and its unique requirements has been difficult to find in Europe.

Parallel to expert presentations and panel discussions, networking will also play a major role at the summit. An exhibition area will offer the opportunity to obtain comprehensive information about new products. FPE has stated that a limited number of suppliers from the fields of raw materials, printing and lamination technology, printing inks, adhesives and coatings and other ‘industry-relevant’ products will have the opportunity to present their contribution to the future of flexible packaging.
