Packaging Summit's focal point: the Hall of Packaging Excellence

An extensive display of the past year’s best new packages will demonstrate what the results can be when education meets inspiration.

Beyond two side-by-side trade shows and a conference, Packaging Summit 2006 will offer visitors the opportunity to view some of the best new package designs from the past year.

A major component of Packaging Summit 2006 will be the Hall of Packaging Excellence. The hall will serve as an entry point into the Packaging Services Expo and the Materials & Containers Expo May 16-18 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL.

“The Packaging Summit Conference educates packaging professionals about key issues and what packaging does for their products,” explains Stephen Krogulski, Packaging Summit business development manager. “The expos—Packaging Containers & Materials and Packaging Services—provide inspiration for package development. The Hall of Packaging Excellence shows how education and inspiration lead to the execution of award-winning packages.”

Another purpose of the Hall of Packaging Excellence is to show how flexible, rigid, paperboard, glass, closures, labels, and other packaging forms deliver what the marketplace needs.

The display will showcase more than 100 award-winning packages. They include those from the Flexible Packaging Association, the Institute of Packaging Professionals’ AmeriStar competition, the National Association of Container Distributors, the Paperboard Packaging Council, the Glass Packaging Institute, and the Tube Council.

Following are just some of the award-winning packages that will be on display in the Hall of Packaging Excellence. For more information, visit www.pkgsummit.com.
