Providing two days of debate and targeted networking with global consumer brands, producers, converters, policymakers, early-stage innovators, and investors – the 2024 agenda offers a unique opportunity to learn from adjacent sectors and gain insights into innovative applications of new materials and technologies that can future-proof your business and achieve more sustainable supply chains.
