Division Conference

The Division Conference is held annually and alternates between Europe and North America. In the odd years, the event is held in Europe and in the even years it is held in North America. In addition to the Conference, the Division presents its annual Extrusion Coating Course (ECC), and often partners with BNP Media to conduct a Stand Up Pouch Workshop prior to the Global Pouch Forum. 


The Teams of the International Flexible Packaging and Extrusion Division work together throughout the year to solve problems, develop technical papers, plan conference sessions, and more. 


 Each year, the International Flexible Packaging and Extrusion Division is proud to provide several awards.


TAPPI Connect
