Andrew Manly will examine smart packaging

Early bird tickets are still available for the 2019 AUSPACK Business and Industry Conference. The industry-leading event will feature more than 25 speakers and panellists who will present new data and ideas through case studies, interactive Q&A sessions, keynote plenary sessions and 18 breakouts across two streams covering packaging and processing, and business growth.

The two-day conference will be held alongside the AUSPACK exhibition at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre on Tuesday 26th and Wednesday 27th March 2019.

According to Mark Dingley, Chairman of the Australian Packaging & Processing Machinery Association (APPMA), “The variety of presentations and speakers will be an excellent way for people to learn about key industry areas.”

In the Packaging and Processing stream on day one Andrew Manly of the Netherlands-based Active and Intelligent Packaging Industry Association will deliver a keynote on “Smart packaging - how can packaging be part of the sustainability solution?”

The presentation will look at how new packaging technologies can drive efficiency, reduce waste and give better control of sales, marketing and the supply chain. The session will go deeply into the world of 'smart packaging' comparing new technologies and active and intelligent solutions.

On the morning of day two, Realise Potential founder John Broadbent will deliver his keynote on “Factory of the future - it's already here”, demystifying the rapidly changing technical environment of smart factories, Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things or IIoT.

Broadbent will then facilitate a panel on “4.0 in practice - taking the next step” in the Packaging and Processing stream.

Across in the Business Growth stream, John Baird will present a case study on “How Blockchain and IoT provide full traceability of the supply chain”. Baird is from Ultimo Digital Technologies and chairman of the Cyber Security Advisory Council of the NSW Department of Finance, Services and Innovation.

Mark Dingley is clearly excited about the conference programme. He says: “The conference is excellent value, but why not take advantage of the early-bird rates while you still can before 25th January 2019?”
