FEPE Annual Congress

8–10 September, 2022

It’s 20 years since the heady days of peak volumes in the envelope industry. In our first post-Covid meeting all together, we’ll be taking a fresh look at where future opportunities lie.

Ecommerce 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.

Register before 30 June to benefit from a €200 reduction!

Welcome Dinner at Ljubljana Castle

Our congress will begin in style with the Welcome Dinner taking place within the historic walls of Ljubljana castle, overlooking the city.

Gala Dinner at Grand Union Hall

In keeping with the Gala Dinner’s tradition of glamour and grandeur, this masterpiece of Art Nouveau architecture will be the dazzling setting on the second evening.

Farewell Dinner at Bled Castle

Perched at the top of a cliff, with stunning views over the lake and surrounding mountains, our Farewell Dinner will be served in this most majestic of settings. Used as a venue in our 1999 Congress, some of our guests may have changed, but the beauty of Bled has not.
