AUSPACK kicks off

Energy Minister Lily D'Ambrosio has officially opened the inaugural AUSPACK Business and Industry Conference. The two-day conference is taking place alongside the long-standing exhibition — opened by Mark Dingley, Chairman of the Australian Packaging and Processing Machinery Association, the owners of AUSPACK — and as part of the broader 2019 Packaging and Processing Week initiatives.

Australian and international speakers will present case studies, interactive Q&A sessions and keynote plenary sessions focusing on two conference streams, Processing and Packaging, and Business Growth. The conference will cover the following topics: sustainability solutions; finding reliable, accessible and secure energy sources; smart packaging technology; innovation in robotics and mechatronics; factory of the future; packaging design trends; understanding the future consumer; and the impact of e-commerce on the supply chain.

Attendees have already heard from Craig Reucassel, Writer and Presenter of ABC’s War on Waste and The Chaser, on the opportunities arising from the 2025 National Packaging Waste Target, and will have the opportunity to hear from John Broadbent, Founder of Realise Potential on the smart factory journey.

Alongside the exhibition stands a 350-exhibitor display of the latest technology and machinery for the food, beverage and pharmaceutical processing and packaging industry.
