Join the Global Conversation on Smart Packaging with AIPIA | 18-02-2020 |
While things may be on hold in and around China, in the first half of 2020 AIPIA has the busiest ever program of outreach to help spread messages and facts about Smart Packaging developments and new applications of these technologies.
At the beginning of the year the Dutch government funded project Smart Packaging for Intelligent Logistics was officially launched at a ‘kick off’ meeting of the consortium, which includes DHL, Packz, Holst Centre, Wageningen University, Pack4Food, GSI, etc. AIPIA is the coordinator of the project, which is managed by Berenschot. So expect to see regular updates on this exciting initiative to introduce smart technologies into European logistics supply chains.
Following on from this, and bit later in Holland (19-20 March) we have been invited to take part in the Home Delivery World Europe event at the RAI Amsterdam as interest in Smart technologies in this area is increasing very fast. See HERE
Before the end of February AIPIA will speak at the Packaging Speaks Green international conference in Bologna (20 and 21 Feb), organized by Italian packaging technology association UCIMA and FICO. There AIPIA will highlight the steps the sector is taking to address sustainable issues in packaging as well as the fight on food waste.
Straight on to Washington (27 Feb) and the prestigious Colloquium on Active Packaging Technology organised jointly by the American Chemical Society and the US Food & Drug Administration. This emphasizes just how important active packaging is being taken by these organizations.
Next up is a short journey to Philadelphia and participation in Pack Expo East (2-5 March) in cooperation with our USA Summit partners Brand Experience Magazine (BXP) with a booth and a talk on the Innovation Stage about the latest Smart Packaging tech.
