On 1 July 2021, AMI released the program for its established Polyolefin Additives conference, taking place in person on 26-28 October 2021 at the Mercure MOA Berlin Hotel, Berlin, Germany. Polyolefins continue to lead the global plastics markets, claiming around 60% of all polymer usage. There is a great opportunity for new application developments to meet increasingly stringent performance criteria, and of course, there is a huge push towards achieving a circular economy and creating more sustainable products.

AMI has been working closely with its advisory board to help build an exciting agenda. The advisory board is made up of leading names within the industry who have shared their knowledge, expertise, and contacts to ensure this conference continues to deliver relevant and interesting content for the entire polyolefins supply chain.

Key industry topics, such as recycling and the circular economy, are addressed by expert speakers through presentations and round table discussions. The program looks to uncover the opportunities across the world, new market trends, and updates on stabilizers and processing aids.

Some highlights of the program include –

  • Focus on China: Market trends and projections for the Chinese polyolefin market after the Covid-19 pandemic
  • Looking at the regulatory developments for the polyolefin additive industry
  • Systematic study of PCR stabilization with standard antioxidants
  • A new generation of stabilizers for high-quality polyolefin recyclates
  • Round table discussions – Regulatory Updates, The Pandemic and Sustainability – led by the advisory board

Jordaine Minchin, the conference producer of Polyolefin Additives, says, “It’s been fantastic working alongside the advisory board, they have really helped me understand the industry drivers which we have reflected in the agenda.’

Alongside the conference, there is an interactive exhibition for companies to display their latest developments. AMI offers plenty of opportunities for productive networking to foster closer industry cooperation and encourage the exchange of market and technical information with like-minded professionals.

There is an early booking discount running until 30th July 2021 where you can save €200* when you book your place at the conference.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
