The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) is holding three educational events on April 30 as part of its National Technical Forum, with registrations now open.
The day starts a Women in Packaging breakfast, followed by the biennial AIP National Technical Forum, then finishing with the gala Australasian Packaging & Innovation Design Awards (PIDA) dinner.
The AIP says the action-packed and informative educational events are a fantastic opportunity to network with a wide range of like-minded packaging professionals and learn along the way.
The AIP National Technical Forum has served the packaging industry for two decades, bringing together packaging technologists, designers, sales and marketing people from all industries to better understand the technical side of packaging design.
The 2019 AIP National Technical Forum will showcase best-practice and award-winning Save Food & Sustainable Packaging Designs, innovative on-pack communications and packaging across Food, Beverage, Pharmaceutical and Domestic Household. Speakers will be coming from all over Australasia and will include Nestle, TetraPak, McCormick, SPC, Campbell Arnott’s, LION, Delicious Food Australia, the Orangutan Alliance, BioPak, Planet Protector, ICEE Containers, Plantic Technologies, APCO, Fight Food Waste CRC, Sealed Air, Result Group, Arthritis Australia, Oji Fibre Solutions.
The PIDA Awards, coinciding with the Forum, are designed to recognise companies and individuals who are making a significant difference in their field and are the exclusive entry point for Australia and New Zealand for the WorldStar Packaging Awards.
This year’s edition of the Women in Packaging Breakfast Forum is titled ‘Disruptive education – flexible learning for the future workplace’, and is open to men and women.
The keynote speaker for the Women in Packaging Forum will be Nikki Moeschinger, Managing Director, BrandOpus. Moeschinger will discuss Creativity, Spirituality and Human Purpose at the Dawn of AI. Her presentation will examine the importance of creativity on the future of humanity, and be followed by a panel discussion, featuring influential and inspiring women working in the food, beverage manufacturing and packaging industry.
Nerida Kelton, executive director, AIP, says, “The event will not only be an ideal networking opportunity, it will also be an insightful forum demonstrating how women in our industry navigate their roles and responsibilities and make a positive contribution to the workplace. The keynote speaker and panellists will explore the new wave of learning opportunities that address the skills gap in line with rapidly advancing technology.”
