IK Industrievereinigung Kunststoffverpackungen, the German association for plastic packaging and films, and EuPC European Plastics Converters are jointly organizing the A Circular Future with Plastics conference in 2019. The two associations representing both national and European plastics processors want to bring together 200 participants from across Europe for joint events and discussions for the two-day conference.

The conference will take place from 13 to 14 June at the Maritim Hotel proArte in Berlin. On June 13, the EuPC Market Divisions, the market-oriented areas of Packaging, Automotive and Building & Construction, will meet in parallel. In the afternoon follows an event on Marine Litter, organized by Waste Free Oceans. At the conference on June 14th, representatives of national and European politics, personalities from the plastics processing and recycling industry as well as executives from other branches of industry will speak about trends and exchange experiences.

Sustainability and the cycle of plastic and plastic products continue to be the most important issues for our industry. Businesses need to work hard to keep pace with the rapid evolution of legislation and consumer behavior, said EuPC CEO Alexander Dangis. Company owners as well as managing directors of larger plastics processors should not miss this strategically important event.

In the light of recent developments at European level and the growing importance of waste prevention, reuse and recycling, the theme of the event and discussion remains A Circular Future with Plastics
