The AIPIA Congress is the only global event for the smart packaging sector and brings together stakeholders from the active and intelligent packaging industry and users to share information on trends and the latest connected and active technology developments.

Both will benefit from the synergies that are being identified between the sustainability agenda and smart technologies, which can aid recycling and reuse of materials and packs, as well as helping to deliver messages about the environmental agenda to consumers.

Major technology providers Crane Automation, Omron, and Zebra Technologies are Platinum sponsors of the event and will exhibit some of their latest innovations as well as making keynote presentations. They will be joined by other leading smart packaging technology developers such as Antares Vision Group, AlmaScience, STMicroelectronics, Securikett, Toppan, and Wiliot with others companies anticipated to confirm soon.

Eef de Ferrante, managing director of AIPIA, commenting on the line up, said, “We have some familiar returning faces who are always at the forefront of smart packaging innovation and so, always with something new to say, as well as some fresh faces to add their own unique take on the way our industry is developing.”

“With 20 + demonstration booths, top quality panel sessions featuring  some of the thought leaders in the sector, plus an exciting Brand Challenge from AB InBev the Congress is set to be a very dynamic and disruptive event. Running at the same time as the Sustainable Packaging Summit also adds a different and highly relevant dimension to the proceedings,” he added.

“In the coming weeks we will reveal more details of the presentations and panels and confirm the Brand Challenge topic and scope. But much of the agenda can be seen on the AIPIA website and this will, as usual, be updated in real time as details are finalized,” explained AIPIA’s communications director Andrew Manly.
