2021 AIP Australasian Packaging Conference

The AIP is pleased to announce that the Institute will be running the 2021 AIP Australasian Packaging mini conference as a virtual edition on the 17th and 18th of August.

Having served the industry for over 28 years, this technical event brings together people from across multiple disciplines including packaging technologists, designers, engineers, sales, marketing, business development, procurement, sustainability and more, to better understand the technical side of packaging design.

The biennial event is also a spotlight to showcase best-practice and award-winning Packaging Designs that have been recognised by their peers from the Australasian Packaging Innovation & Design Awards (PIDA). Many of the innovations that will be discussed over the two days have gone on to win WorldStar Packaging general awards and WorldStar Special awards, which have added global peer recognition to their achievements. 

This educational event will allow attendees the opportunity to be inspired by what other companies are already developing in key industries and markets and will allow you to hear their challenges and learnings through the packaging design journey. Walk away with new ideas and inspiration for your next packaging project and hear from innovators in Sustainable and Save Food Packaging Design, Domestic & Household, Health, Beauty & Wellness, Food, Beverage and Marketing.

PKN and Food & Drink Business Women in Packaging Forum, presented in partnership with AIP, will be held on the 18th of August.
