Welcome to API2021
API CONGRESS BECOMES VIRTUAL
After the success of the previous editions held in Naples in 2015 and in Milan in 2017 and after the stop due to the covid 19 pandemic which did not make the organization of the 3rd API Congress possible in 2020 as scheduled, we decided to organize it in 2021 in VIRTUAL MODE. After 4 years from the last edition, we believe that a debate among the experts in the field can no longer be postponed as it is necessary to share the latest updates and cutting-edge ideas related to the flexible packaging sector. Academic and industry experts will cover wide range of topics relevant to innovations and future challenges.
We are therefore pleased to announce that the congress will take place in a virtual but very interactive way on 11 and 12 November 2021.
The two days Congress will be run on two main sessions related to Product and Process and oral and poster presentations sessions.

The Group is integrated into the Confindustria system, through the Associazione Nazionale delle Industrie Grafiche, Cartotecniche e Trasformatrici (National Association of Printing and Paper Processing Industries) and, in Europe, is a member of FPE (Flexible Packaging Europe). Ever since its establishment in 1985, the Group has provided a reference and support to its members, bringing a wide range of services, such as:
– Information on the technical, regulatory and marketing aspects related to flexible packaging

Furthermore, through the activity of specialized working groups and coordinated by consultants, experts in the field, Giflex carries out a constant and continuous monitoring and updating of the legal aspects and the environmental issues affecting the production and the application fields of flexible packaging, providing insights and timely assistance to the entire membership base.
