FEPE Congress 2018

This year FEPE's annual congress will take place from 13 - 15 September 2018 in the historic city of Tallinn, the capital of Estonia.

Described as "lively but peaceful, absurdly photogenic and bursting with wonderful sights", this year's congress promises to once again combine a beautiful location with stimulating topics and excellent networking opportunities for the envelope industry and its suppliers.

Congress Registration

You can now register for the Congress. To register, please use our online registration form.

Venue and hotel

The congress will take place at the Tallinn Hilton Park hotel. FEPE has reserved rooms for the duration of the congress at a preferential rate for congress guests.  The room price for single occupancy is €139 and for double occupancy is €154.

You can already reserve your room via this hotel reservation form.


As usual the congress programme will range from subjects directly related to the envelope industry to topics and trends with a broader implication.

The digital revolution continues to invade all aspects of life, and we will examine how we can expect digital to shape our business in the coming years. The rise in e-commerce is a major part and we will look at current packaging trends and future packaging requirements and what the potential opportunities are for the envelope industry.  Direct mail will be discussed as the effectiveness of targeted digital marketing comes under ever greater scrutiny.  With its proven track record, could printed direct mail make a come-back?  We will also touch on subjects related to the environment and European market trends.


Once again we are delighted to welcome outstanding speakers from the industry and beyond.  They will inform us on developments in the envelope market as well as enlighten us on the hottest trends that will impact our industry. Confirmed speakers are:

Networking and social events

One of the factors which contributes to the continuing popularity and success of the FEPE congress are the excellent networking opportunities held in exceptional settings.  With its long history and rich culture we have found some very special venues in Tallinn for our events.

The Welcome Dinner on 13 September will take place in the House of the Black Heads.  This beautiful building, which dates back to the 16th century, housed the headquarters of the Brotherhood of the Black Heads, a guild for unmarried merchants and ship owners.

Our Gala Dinner will be held in the Creative Hub on 14 September.  A former power station in the heart of Tallinn, this venue provides a highly original setting for the most glamorous event of the congress.

The Farewell Dinner is a relaxed evening, and this year will take place in the restaurant R14, a recently renovated industrial building in the trendy Rotermann Quarter. R14 aims to serve exceptional food accompanied by high-quality wines.

 Congress registration

Invitations to the congress will be sent out in early May.  Registration via the FEPE website will be possible towards the end of April.
