Pira International, in association with Packaging Digest, is pleased to announce the dates for the fifth annual Sustainability in Packaging conference. This year’s event will take place February 22-24 at the Doubletree Resort Orlando International Drive in Orlando, Florida, USA. This top-level and interactive event focuses on current trends and the most up-to-date information affecting sustainability in the packaging industry.
“The Sustainability in Packaging Conference has grown into an important educational event for retailers, consumer packaged goods companies, packagers and their suppliers,” says John Kalkowski, editorial director of Packaging Digest and three-time chairman of the event. “The program is designed to meet the current informational needs of companies at all levels of the supply chain, primarily through multi-track presentations that demonstrate what is state of the art in packaging today. In addition, the conference offers an excellent opportunity to network with leaders in the sustainability movement.”
“This is our fifth annual event and will highlight the many developments in technology and innovative approaches that are taking place,” said Olga Adamovich, conference director at Pira International. “Last year’s event, which attracted more than 300 top leaders and nearly 25 exhibitors from a wide breadth of companies, proved that this issue will continue to rise in importance. If you are involved in the packaging world you won’t want to miss Sustainability in Packaging 2011 and the many networking and learning opportunities offered.”
