The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) and the Australian Packaging & Processing Machinery Association (APPMA) are currently at the planning stage of the 2017 National Technical Forums that will be held as a part of Packaging & Processing Week during AUSPACK 2017 at the Sydney Showgrounds, Sydney Olympic Park on March 7-9.
Following a number of highly successful National Technical Forums over the last seven AUSPACK exhibitions, the 2017 National Technical Forum will be designed to deliver a three-day educational program that will cover a broad range of topics relating to the theme ‘Packaging & Processing Innovation & Design’.
The 2017 Packaging & Processing Week National Technical Forums will attract delegates from all facets of the packaging and processing industry of both technologist and management levels (such as design, development, marketing, production, engineering, supply chain and logistics personnel) to equipment suppliers, raw material providers, users of packaging, retailers and consumers.
Papers that can focus on any of the specific industry sectors identified below are highly encouraged. Food, Beverage, Manufacturing, Pharmaceutical, Dairy, Meat, Poultry, Seafood, Fresh Produce, Health, Beauty & Wellness, Domestic & Household. The National Technical Forum Programming Committee is looking specifically for case-study and real-life examples style presentations and papers under the theme Innovation & Design. Working case-study applications with brand owners and end-users is strongly encouraged.
If you have a suitable speaker and topic that fits under the topic areas for the three-day forums then please access the Call for Speakers Information here. The Call for Speakers topic list is not limiting and any additional ideas would be welcomed.
The AIP and the APPMA intend to break the National Technical Forums into breakout sessions, to ensure that a diverse range of issues and topics are covered over the three days. The organisers are looking for a broad range of speakers from all areas of the packaging, processing, materials and component sectors to ensure that the National Technical Forums offer something for everyone.
Partnership opportunities are also available
