Agenda >>

Registration >>


The 2017 edition of the PETnology conference will be the 20th of its kind. We are proud that, for so many years, we can offer a platform to the PET packaging industry that reflects our motto: connecting comPETence. The PETnology conference has established itself as an international industry meeting point for well over 800 companies – and counting – from the global PET market. 

In our industry, 2017 is the drinktec year. We can expect many highlights, also world premieres. In this framework, the PETnology conference will be the place to discuss in depth innovations and developments along the PET packaging value chain, to exchange knowledge.

Beside the core topics along the PET packaging value chain

  • Engineering and technology solutions for PET packaging and filling processes to improve productivity and efficiency
  • Reduction of material and energy consumption, sustainability
  • Barrier technologies, shelf-life improvements
  • Design, technology and convenience for bottles, caps and closures
  • Decoration of bottles and caps
  • Recycling technology

2 top trends are on everyone's lips and will have a special focus at the event: digitization and circular economy


Companies cannot afford to, nor want to close themselves off from new technology. Though digitization  is getting more and more concrete there are still many questions what exactly digitization means to the PET industry, and every company seems to be at a different stage of implementation. During the conference, presentations on filling and preform moulding, bottle production and inspection will focus on this topic and it will also be one of the top topics in the networking area.

Circular economy

One of the main questions at the PETnology events in the past years was “Are we green enough?”. It is the unanimous opinion that this question can probably never be answered with a resounding “Yes”, but making progress on this path must be the clear aim. Meanwhile more and more international, regional or even local campaigns have been initiated and more and more companies put this topic on their agenda. At PETnology Europe 2017, presentations from different parts of the PET value chain will show the most effective technologies to establish a closed loop for PET products. Apart of this, the call for informing and educating end consumers will be discussed by the participants.

More than 30 international speakers from the suppliers’ and end-users’ side will give you the opportunity to become involved in creating and discussing solutions to market challenges that could have a direct influence on packaging, machinery and your business.
