SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – After eight successful years in the United States, the ninth annual International In-Mold Labeling (IML) Conference will take place in Europe. Euro/IMLCON2000 will be held September 26-27, 2000, at the Amsterdam Marriott Hotel, Amsterdam, the Netherlands. This first-ever presentation in Europe of the only global conference dedicated to in-mold labeling technology and markets offers attendees a unique opportunity to learn the latest technology in this important field.

“In-mold labeling of containers for food, personal-care items, household cleaning and automotive products is growing globally,” says Ronald B. Schultz, president of RBS Technologies, Inc., the sponsor of Euro/IMLCON2000. He notes that “uses for blow-molded and injection-molded containers decorated with high-quality in-mold labels continue to expand into new market areas. Many new IML applications changed from heat-transfer or pressure sensitive labels to achieve cost savings for the packager.”

In addition to four sessions of invited papers, Euro/IMLCON2000 will feature a tabletop exhibit hall and many networking opportunities during a conference reception and two luncheons. The papers will cover topics of interest to end users, blow molders, injection molders, printers, and material and equipment suppliers.
