LIVE: New Frontiers in Packaging Print

For brand owners large and small looking to maximise shelf impact and engage the consumer via printed packaging, an upcoming LIVE forum in Sydney will bring you up to speed.

New Frontiers in Packaging Print, powered by Food & Drink Business stablemates PKN Packaging News and Print21, will be held on Friday 3 August in Darling Harbour, and will cover what brand owners and their packaging and marketing teams need to know about the latest global trends in printed packaging and the game-changing technologies available in Australia.

The one-day forum will be exploring how the adoption of digital printing is moving beyond the realm of labels into other packaging substrates – from cartonboard to corrugated to flexibles – and vastly expanding the scope of options open to brand owners for versionalised, personalised and limited edition packaging.

Also included in the content line-up is the use of on-pack-triggered augmented reality (AR) experiences to trigger consumer engagement experiences.

And the forum will cover the all-important area of e-commerce packaging, and how the cardboard delivery carton for an online order can be transformed into a branded platform that enhances the unboxing experience for the consumer.
