During Interpack it was announced that the Australian Institute of Packaging will play host to the 2018 WPO WorldStar Awards.

The WorldStar Awards are run by the World Packaging Organisation (WPO) and is the pre-eminent international award in packaging.

WorldStar illustrates the continual advancement of the state of packaging design and technology and creates a living standard of international packaging excellence from which others may learn.

WorldStars are presented only to those packs which, having already won recognition in a national or regional competitions, are compared by an expert panel of judges to similar packs from around the world.

The 2018 WorldStar Awards will run as a part of the biennial AIP National Conference, which will be held on 2 and 3 May at the Marriott Hotel, Surfers Paradise, Queensland.
