CanTech The Grand Tour is the annual conference for metal packaging manufacturers. The conference assembles technical experts from global suppliers and can makers, maximizing the channels of communication between key decision makers in the global metal packaging industry and providing can makers with access to the latest in efficient and flexible production technologies.

The show follows the same successful format as Asia CanTech. Suppliers find the all-inclusive conference, dinners and networking opportunities provide a useful and cost-effective option for meeting customers, both new and existing, in a professional and personal setting.

CanTech The Grand Tour – the schedule

The conference is structured as an all-inclusive event that runs over three days. Registration takes place during the afternoon of the first day, along with the Tabletop Exhibition and networking with complimentary refreshments. This is followed by a full sit-down welcome dinner for all delegates.

Keynote speeches and technical presentations run on Days Two and Three. The Exhibition Hall is open on all three afternoons, offering suppliers the opportunity to display products and distribute technical information to can makers and fillers. Towards the end of these sessions, complimentary refreshments and a bar are set up in the Exhibition Hall to create a social networking atmosphere.

The evening of Day Two is the Gala Dinner and Awards ceremony, featuring fine food and entertainment.

The Supplier attendance fee includes two nights’ accommodation at the hotel, all meals from dinner on Day One to lunch on Day Three, plus entry into presentations, Technical Forum and the Exhibition Hall.

Presentations and Tabletop Exhibits

Presentations are given in 20 minute slots. These are always very popular and can sell out quickly.

In the Exhibition Hall, tabletop exhibits offer the opportunity for suppliers to display their products and distribute technical information to delegates. Complimentary refreshments are offered, creating a relaxed yet professional networking environment.
