Five reasons you need to book for the APPMA Business and Industry Conference now. It’s June. It’s EOFY. That’s your first hint!

1. Early birds catch worms. Book Now to access Early Bird Rates.
The early bird rates close on 30 June. Invest in your team’s resilience and professional development with the option of attending in person or virtually. With so few conferences and events over the past year and no AUSPACK until 2022, this is the chance to learn and stay connected. Register now.

2. How are you going to survive the fourth Industrial Revolution? Practical advice from world leaders and the only way to hear them is to register.
Francisco Betti from the World Economic Forum thinks this may not be the last pandemic, but other threats to your manufacturing business are on the horizon. He is the head of Shaping the Future of Advanced Manufacturing and Production for the WEF and believes other threats are likely to include climate change, geopolitical and socio-economic instability such as trade wars, conflicts, disruption to supply chains and cyber security. How prepared is your organisation for each of these?
Deloitte’s partner for Cyber Security, David Owens will explore the rise of major incidents of cyber attacks within the manufacturing sector including ransomware and will provide practical advice on the key things for organisations to remain secure, vigilant, and resilient in the face of cyber security risks.

3. Book with Certainty. We are going ahead regardless of travel restrictions.
We purposely designed this year’s APPMA Business and Industry conference as a hybrid event, offering both live and live-streamed allowing members, partners and supporting industries to attend in-person or virtually from anywhere.

4. Get in front. Showcase your new trend, machinery, or equipment efficiently to a qualified audience. Travel restrictions have made it hard to travel, network and build new business. This event provides the perfect platform to get back in front of clients, partners and industry groups. Learn from suppliers what is new from their business. Travel may have stopped but innovation and growth in the packaging and manufacturing space did not.

5. Practical take aways from industry leaders. There is so much to learn and there will be many valuable practical tools and take aways such as guidance to the following challenges:
• How can your increase your supply chain’s resilience through visibility and traceability?
• What are the National Packaging Targets and how will they affect your business?
• How do you market your organisation to attract and retain the best talent?
• Leading manufacturing companies speak about their cyber security experiences and how they now protect their business from future threats
• How to set up a smart factory project for success.

The APPMA Business & Industry Conference takes place on 16 September as a hybrid event, at the ICC, Darling Harbour in Sydney.
