As industry focus on sustainability continues to mount, Smithers Pira and GreenBlue’s Sustainable Packaging Coalition (SPC) have announced their intention for a new packaging event aimed at industry leaders.
Organizers for the 2015 event state their intention for participants from across the packaging supply chain to come together to “discuss, network, learn and debate the opportunities, technologies and challenges facing the industry now and in the future”.
The event will comprise of meetings, site tours, exhibition, conference, workshops and receptions. Strategy and programming will be guided by a joint steering committee made up of SPC representatives, Smithers Pira and other industry stakeholders, the organizers state.
John Lewinski, head of US Events for Smithers Pira, voiced his confidence in the event’s aims.
“By joining together, the business executives, R&D leaders, government policy makers, stakeholders, and investors that make up the key audiences for the SPC and Smithers Pira will have more opportunities to build strategic relationships and greater access to the most current research and information,” he said.
The conference and exhibition event will be held in March 2015.
