Can you picture yourself as a speaker at the AIP Packaging Globalisation conference next year?

If so, you have only 10 days to register your interest here.

The 2018 biennial Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) National Conference, surrounding the theme of Packaging Globalisation, will be held on 2 and 3 May at the Marriott Hotel in Surfers Paradise, Queensland.

The conference is designed for packaging designers, technologists, engineers, and sales and marketing people, and is the largest packaging and processing conference of its kind in Australia and New Zealand.

Run by industry for industry, the AIP National Conference is a part of the annual Packaging & Processing Week.

In 2018, the AIP will also be hosting the 2018 WorldStar Packaging Awards, the 2018 Packaging & Processing Innovation & Design (PIDA) Awards, and the 2018 World Packaging Organisation Board Meetings alongside the conference.
