The Shows Must Go On . . .
It’s official, it’s Spring, the clocks have gone forward in the UK and we’re all feeling very positive here at Canmaking News – we’ve had a busy start to our year that shows no sign of letting up anytime soon. Talking of shows, there are a few in the offing so here’s a reminder of some you might want to get booked onto.
The International Metal Decorating and Packaging Association (IMDPA) Annual Scholarship Golf Outing, Banquet and 2 -Day Conference is just around the corner, starting with the golf outing and banquet on Tuesday 21 May, with the conference taking place on Wednesday 22 May – Thursday 23 May at its usual venue in Oak Brook, Illinois and we’ll be there to cover the event.
Alongside the provision of its tabletop exhibits, which provide the chance to promote your company and showcase your technology, IMDPA also offer sponsorship opportunities, whereby you demonstrate your commitment to metal packaging. Sponsor benefits include: getting your name in front of a targeted audience of over 300 industry professionals; receiving a free listing in the Sponsor & Exhibitor Prospectus booklet, on-site signs and banners throughout the conference complex, a special attendees badge, a logo placement/hyperlink on the IMDPA website for 12 months and a free listing in the Resource directory. Being a sponsor comes with the added bonus of a complimentary table top display during the Sponsor Hosted Hospitality Event.
We have also been busy finalising our arrangements for METPACK 2020, it doesn’t seem possible that nearly two years have passed since our last visit to Messe Essen. We’ll let you know more when we’re done. Don’t forget, as we mentioned in last month’s issue – those wishing to attend will need to register by 31 May 2019.
Other shows to look out for:
Craft Brewers Conference & BrewExpo America in Denver, Colorado on 8 April 2019
CRU World Aluminium Conference 2019, London, UK on 24 April 2019
We’re always interested in your news and announcements, big or small, so please don’t hesitate to send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. You never know, you might find yourself featured in the Best Of Canmaking News!

This morning we're discussing the #aluminium industry's blueprint for the next @EU_Commission @Europarl_EN's term. Chairman Emilio Braghi @Novelis starts by highlighting we must achieve full circularity. All solutions that keep our metal in the loop are worthwhile to consider! ♻️ pic.twitter.com/jX3tn1lKva

Lovely afternoon at @doylystearoom with Ruth and Anne.
They are kindly collecting all the cans and foil from the tea room for @SNAPPYYork. Thank you so much for joining our recycling collection #RubbishIntoCash

Metal tin packaging can be used over and over again – even when the product is all gone! Take this Bill's granola #tin, it's now used in Bill's restaurants to hold cutlery. @BillsRestaurant #upcycling #recycling pic.twitter.com/2dTQP6jnGR
