Autumn or Fall, depending which side of the pond you’re on, has well and truly landed and with it comes some excellent shows.

Latamcan took place at the end of September and although we were unable to attend this year, those of you that attended have said how wonderful it felt for things to feel a little more back to normal. By all accounts the show was a huge success and we can’t wait to attend next year. Similarly the IMDPA is due to take place at the beginning October, whilst again we are unable to attend due to US border restrictions, we know that this will be an excellent show and we can’t wait to hear your news from it. Check out the presentation schedule here.

Elsewhere, the global community is facing enormous issues with supply chains, which as we know, is affecting aluminium can production fairly significantly. In the UK we’re seeing huge queues at petrol stations and delays with our beloved royal mail. We’re currently looking into the effect this is happening on the wider metal packaging industry and will bring you an in-depth report over the next few days.
