FEPE Congress 2020

The FEPE Congress this year will take place 24-26 September in Ljubljana, a city of unparalled beauty, steeped in history and culture. Beyond the city lies the stunning Slovenian landscape which will equally impress.  What better setting for our 63rd Congress?

'Moving from Volume to Value'

It’s 20 years since the heady days of peak volumes in the envelope industry. As we enter a new decade, we’ll be taking a fresh look at where future opportunities lie. E-commerce continues to offer a tantalising but as yet untapped potential. Is focusing on ‘value over volumes’ the way forward for our industry? These will be among the topics we’ll be exploring, as well as insights into the European economy and global and European envelope market trends.
