The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) will be moving its 2020 AIP Australasian Packaging Conference to a virtual edition from 27 to 30 October.

The Virtual Edition of the 2020 AIP Australasian Packaging Conference will bring together over 60 leading international and national technical experts that will discuss the theme Packaging: Fit for the Future. 

 The beauty of the Virtual Edition is that if you are unable to attend all of the sessions you will not miss out.

The conference will be designed so that delegate can choose to:

  •        Join live via Zoom software and interact – watch and interact with the sessions while they are happening;
  •        Watch the ‘live stream’ - watch a live video of the session; or
  •        Watch a ‘recording’ of the session at a later time. 

AIP executive director Nerida Kelton said that, “As added value, delegates who are unable to join any of the sessions live will be able to access the recordings of all sessions using their unique conference website login details until the end of December 2020. This will allow everyone the flexibility to view the presentations as many times as they wish, and in their own time.” 

“There will also be live interactive opportunities during the morning tea and lunch breaks to learn about new innovations, materials and equipment that the industry has to offer. These sessions will be designed so that delegates can bring their coffee, or lunch, into the live room and learn about a new innovation and ask questions." 

“The AIP’s goal is to re-create the physical conference planned for April into a Virtual Edition so that the industry does not miss out on hearing all of the wonderful speakers that the Institute had lined up. 

“In addition, delegates will be able to have a coffee and network with all of the conference partners during the breaks; just like you would during a physical conference. We are also working in partnership with Yaffa to bring the Women in Packaging Forum back to sit as a key part of the four-day event with an incredible keynote speaker,” she said. 

Registrations are open to book your place at the virtual edition of the largest technical packaging conference run in Australia by the industry for the industry.
