The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) is inviting potential speakers to submit abstracts for consideration for its 2018 National Conference to be held in Surfers Paradise in May.

The deadline for abstract submissions is 17 November and the theme is Packaging Globalisation. The application can be downloaded here along with a list of topic areas for consideration.

Following a number of successful conferences the 2018 AIP National Conference, which will take place at the Marriott Resort, Surfers Paradise on May 2 – 3, will deliver a two-day educational program that will cover a broad range of topics relating to this theme.

The AIP National Conference is designed for packaging designers, technologists, engineers, sales and marketing people and is the largest packaging and processing conference of its kind in Australia and New Zealand.

Run by industry for industry the AIP National Conference has been leading the way in professional and personal development for decades and is a part of the annual Packaging & Processing Week.

The AIP has announced that, in 2018, it will also be hosting the 2018 WorldStar Packaging Awards, the 2018 Packaging & Processing Innovation & Design (PIDA) Awards and the 2018 World Packaging Organisation Board Meetings all alongside of the AIP National Conference; making it a truly international packaging event.

It is anticipated that over 25 countries will be represented during the week’s activities which will ensure that your brand, company and solutions will be promoted on a global scale. The exhibition area for the 2018 AIP National Conference will be the direct catering area for all of the activities during the week; including the pre-dinner drinks for the gala awards event on the 2nd of May.
