AUSPACK 2022: now open for registrations
The AUSPACK 2022 processing and packaging trade event, which is part of Packaging and Processing Week, is being held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre on 17–20 May 2022.
Mark Dingley, Chairman of the Australian Packaging & Processing Machinery Association (APPMA), which owns AUSPACK, said: “AUSPACK 2022 will showcase a host of global mega trends in the food, beverage and pharmaceutical processing and packaging industries. As the first industry expo since 2019, it will be the perfect place for people across the packaging and processing sectors to find solutions to increase efficiencies across their business.”
This year, more than 250 suppliers representing hundreds of global brands will be on the show floor, offering visitors solutions that address a range of industry trends and themes. The event will allow attendees to see, firsthand, products that offer enhanced safety, security, automation and cost-saving benefits.
The AUSPACK Leaders Forum, from 18–19 May, will offer business owners the opportunity to benchmark as an organisation of the future, gain knowledge and inspiration, and network with like-minded, forward-thinking leaders. Key themes include:
- Future supply chain
- Adapting and diversifying for commercial success
- Future technology
- Sustainability and the circular economy
- Investment and collaboration
- Future workforce
The expanded Solutions Theatres will give visitors in-depth overviews of technology, solutions and strategies, with sessions covering:
- supply chain and procurement
- preventive maintenance
- materials and packaging design
- network security
- the circular economy
- the future of manufacturing and warehousing
- … and more.
The exhibition floor will also feature an array of new zones: IT & Services, Processing Equipment, Packaging and Packaging Materials, and Packaging Machinery, making navigation easier.
Behind-the-scenes enhancements to the exhibitors’ directory will allow visitors to search for very specific areas, while the highly searchable Leaders Forum will allow visitors to find topics that suit their interests. Both enhancements mean visitors can plan their time at AUSPACK 2022, resulting in a rewarding experience.
Entry to the APPMA Awards of Excellence has also opened, and closes on 4 March. Winners will be announced at the Gala Awards Ceremony on 18 May on day two of AUSPACK 2022. Tickets for both the Awards Gala Night and Leaders Forum are on sale from February.
AUSPACK 2022 will be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, 17–20 May 2022.
Tickets to the exhibition are free and are now available on the website.
