- Inaugural summit held in Brussels
- Addresses themes and challenges for future of industry
The European Carton Manufacturers’ Association (ECMA) recently held its inaugural Folding Carton Leadership Summit in Brussels, as it moves to provide the industry with a dynamic network of business links.
The summit offered delegates the opportunity to address the latest industry trends and evaluate the technology on show at the recent Drupa exhibition in Düsseldorf, Germany.
Attended by carton makers, industry suppliers, and other decision makers within the industry, the event was moderated by Nick Coombes, Package Print Worldwide editor. Coombes made a presentation entitled: “Innovation and the Future of Packaging”.
Delegates were invited to engage in a discussion of the themes and challenges that will dominate folding carton production in the near future, which include offering a wider range of services to customers, and working more closely with them to develop new products and achieve favored supplier status.
Coombes said: ‘The folding carton industry has a unique opportunity to improve its performance and role within the supply chain – I challenge you all to seize it.’
ECMA will host its 2012 congress in Copenhagen, Denmark on September 19-22.
