ONLINE voting is now open for the ICE Awards 2019, which will honour best practice, excellence, innovation and achievements within the converting community.
Held during ICE Europe 2019, exhibitors have the chance to win an award in one of four categories: Digital Converting Solutions, Sustainable Products and Manufacturing Processes, Efficient Production Solutions, and Special Film Innovations.
The online voting ends on February 19 at midnight. The winners will be announced at an official ceremony on March 12.
Organisers of this year’s ICE Europe, which will be held at the Munich Trade Fair Centre from March 12-14, said the focus of the exhibition will be on the digitalisation of manufacturing, the individualisation of products and the sustainability of materials and processes.
Liljana Goszdziewski, exhibition director of ICE Europe, on behalf of the organisers, Mack Brooks Exhibitions, explained, “The converting industry faces diverse challenges: On the one hand, a growing demand for sustainable products and tighter regulatory requirements, e.g. new legislative proposals. On the other hand, the consumers’ desire for individualised, high-quality products and packaging solutions as well as new developments and opportunities, that Industry 4.0 offers.
“ICE Europe 2019 is the central meeting point for the international converting industry to find the best possible ways to turn these diverse challenges into promising opportunities.”
For the first time, ICE Europe 2019 will present a dedicated Special Film & Extrusion Area.
