Due to the continued travel ban into the USA because of the Corona pandemic, unfortunately we have been forced to postpone the Aerosol & Metal Packaging Technology Forum (AMPAT) into next year, to May 25 & 26, 2021.
When, at the end of last year, we approached the industry with the decision to bring the Aerosol & Metal Packaging Technology Forum in New York into being, we were met with great enthusiasm. The first exhibitors booked their booths relatively quickly, the international aerosol industry was euphoric. People were very pleased that there would once again be an international aerosol event in North America, after the Aerosol & Dispensing Forum was discontinued.
We did not make the decision to postpone AMPAT until May 2021 lightly. Until very recently, we were hoping that the travel ban into the USA would be lifted. Unfortunately, it does not look like this will be the case until after the election in the USA. Therefore, this decision is the right one. We are optimistic that AMPAT will be a successful trade event for the international aerosol industry in North America in May of next year.
