AIP conference online next month
The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) will be holding its 2021 Australasian Packaging mini conference as a virtual edition this year, with the event slated for 17 and 18 of August.
As part of the conference PKN Packaging News and sister media brand Food & Drink Business will host the fourth Women in Packaging forum. It will take place as part of the AIP packaging conference on the morning of 18 August, and is free to all registered attendees of the conference.
Keynote speaker Louise Weine, CEO of the National Association of Women in Operations (NAWO), will be talking to the topic Diversity Dialogue: We need action now!
Registrations are open here.
Now in its 28th year the AIP conference brings together people from multiple disciplines including packaging technology, design, engineering, sales, marketing, business development, procurement, and sustainability.
The biennial event is also a spotlight to showcase best-practice and award-winning packaging designs that have been recognised by their peers, in the annual Packing Innovation & Design Awards.
Many of the innovations that will be discussed over the two days have gone on to win WorldStar Packaging general awards and WorldStar special awards, which have added global recognition to their achievements.
“This educational event will allow attendees the opportunity to be inspired by what other companies are already developing in key industries and markets, and will allow attendees to hear their challenges and learnings through the packaging design journey,” says Nerida Kelton, executive director, AIP.
“Walk away with new ideas and inspiration for your next packaging project and hear from innovations in sustainable and save food packaging design; domestic and household; health, beauty and wellness; food; beverage; and marketing.”
The conference is designed so that interested parties can choose to:
• Join live via Zoom and interact with the sessions as it happens;
• Watch the live video of the session; or
• Watch a recording of the session at a later time.
There will also be live interactive opportunities during the morning tea and lunch breaks to learn about new innovations, materials and equipment that the industry has to offer.
Tickets are $350 for AIP members, $450 for partner association members, and $490 for non-AIP members. Click here to register.
