E-commerce builds momentum by the bay (sidebar)

E-commerce, take two

Michigan State University is capitalizing on the success of its June conference with another Packaging for e-commerce direct-to-consumers program scheduled September 26 and 27 in East Lansing, MI. The program runs from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. Packaging World will also sponsor this program.

While the schedule has not yet been finalized, a tentative preview shows the conference will be divided into four sessions, as opposed to three held in San Francisco in June. The four sessions are Overview, Communication, Distribution and Production. A panel discussion follows each session, allowing audience members to question speakers from that particular session. Two sessions will be held each day, divided by a presentation from a special luncheon speaker.

Among the scheduled speakers are representatives from International Safe Transit Assn., San Jose State University, A.T. Kearney, NextPak.com, Perception Research Services, DuPont, 3M and QVC.

The conference registration is $995. For conference registration, call Mary Anne Merrill at MSU, 517/355-9580. A block of rooms has been reserved at the Kellogg Center Hotel and Conference Center on the MSU campus. Call 800/875-5090 for reservations.
