WATCH: Hot tech heads to AUSPACK

A wealth of new technologies will be on display at AUSPACK 2019 in Melbourne next week. Our sister publication PKN Packaging News has created this video showcase of just some of the tech highlights of this year's big event.

Billed as the largest-ever AUSPACK, 2019 is set to be an exciting year for Australia’s leading packaging and processing event, according to the marketing director of organiser Exhibitions and Trade Fairs (ETF) Anne-Marie Mina.

“This year is the largest floor space ever, and exhibition space on the show floor still sold six months before the event,” she said.

“This is the show’s 34th year and it just keeps growing. That’s exceptional for this category of trade show, but the reason is because AUSPACK is the event that attracts key industry players, so has for many, many years been a showcase of cutting-edge, innovative packaging and processing technologies. It’s all under one roof and entry is free. It offers visitors so much value.”
