Packaging Strategies, producer of the 18th annual Global Pouch Forum, is pleased to unveil an expanded 2015 program at a new and larger venue in Miami, FL.

Global Pouch Forum is proud to announce a NEW partnership with TAPPI’s PLACE Division (Polymers, Laminations, Adhesives, Coatings and Extrusions) to expand our education offerings. This one day Flexible Packaging Symposium, on June 10 before the Forum begins, is designed to give an in-depth look into pouch-making and structures and features speakers from the converting side.
Packaging Strategies’ Global Pouch Forum on June 11-12 showcases an exciting line-up of top-level speakers from the packaging and consumer packaged goods communities. Attendees will learn about the growth of the flexible packaging and stand-up pouch marketplace, and the latest in pouch innovations, recycling, safety, and consumer research. Event Program
Three days of sessions, networking, and exhibits will take you on a journey from how a pouch is made to why it is the fastest-growing package type in the world. Only at Global Pouch Forum can you get the whole story in one place.
Register TODAY for both Global Pouch Forum 2015 and for TAPPI’s Flexible Packaging Symposium.
Flexible packaging has come a long way from its origins in the 1950s when cellophane was the only option. Over the years, converters made coated paper into bags, which evolved into polypropylene and polyethylene, and then into preformed pouches in the 1970s.
Four decades and many material and coating breakthroughs later, the pouch has evolved into one of the fastest-growing types of packaging. Because of its superior aesthetics, portability, and lighter weight, it has attracted packaged goods manufacturers from the food, beverage, healthcare, and household products industries.
In the U.S., stand-up pouches are growing at a rate of 6.5% a year, eclipsing that of other types of pouches and flexible packaging, according to market researcher Freedonia Group. Flexible packaging is the second-largest packaging segment in the U.S., garnering about 18% (close to $30 billion) of the $145 billion packaging market.
