Meeting Sustainability & Technology Challenges

21 – 22 October 2020 – London, UK

The 12th International Tinplate Conference will take place at the Copthorne Tara Hotel London Kensington, UK, located in the heart of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.

The two-day conference will attract those interested in understanding the key commercial and technical tinplate developments and provide opportunities to network with the global industry, including the Gala Dinner on the evening of the first day.
