A busy start to the year for the Canmaking News team as we attended the annual ADF packaging show in Paris. A highlight on our calendars, it was lovely to catch up with you all and see the impressive work our industry continues to showcase. The event attracted nearly 9000 visitors this year, a 30% increase from June’s event. With 38 speakers across the two day event, it really isn’t one to miss. Next stop AmericaPack in New Orleans – although more about that below.

This year we’re celebrating 20 years of Canmaking News, kicking off with our annual Best of Canmaking News printed magazine. If you haven’t yet got a copy or had a flick through click here to find out how.
