The event on Tuesday, May 16, will be the first annual conference hosted by Diadeis, an agency specializing in brand identity. The full-day event has been designed as “an intimate and interactive event, a one-day track devoted to understanding and sharing strategies and insights with a focus on improving the packaging value chain,” according to a company press release.
In the spirit of innovation and productive technology transfer, speakers and attendees will represent a full spectrum of consumer goods industries including food and beverage, consumer health and pharma, and home care, as well as cosmetics and personal care.
