5th Global Tape Forum Global Test Methods Committee and CATIA Technical Conference May 17-20 in Beijing
6th Global Tape Forum 2018
The Global Tape Forum (GTF) holds its meetings biennially at the annual or technical conference of one of its members. This also includes the Global Test Methods Committee (GTMC), the worldwide adhesive tape technical body, which usually meets at the same event at which the GTF meeting takes place. Afera’s turn in the rotation falls in 2018, when we will host the Association’s 1st Global Adhesive Tape Summit on 11-15 June at the Sheraton Munich Arabellapark Hotel in Munich, Germany.
Afera’s Global Adhesive Tape Summit will feature an international technical seminar programme highlighted by the GTF and GTMC meetings. The European event will draw attendees from North America, Asia and the Middle East. Afera Secretary-General Astrid Lejeune is organising the Tape Summit along with an experienced working group led by Evert Smit, Afera Technical Committee chairman and head of R&D at Lohmann GmbH & Co. KG., and including Reinhard Storbeck, director of R&D at tesa SE; Gert-Jan van Ruler, application specialist at Eastman Chemical Middelburg B.V.; and Ian Grace, global technical support manager for tapes and labels at Bostik B.V.
