Smart packaging is an umbrella term that encompasses both active packaging and intelligent packaging - two different value-adding functions on or in a pack design. One acts to prolong the shelf life of sealed goods, while the other aims to communicate data on this or other factors for the benefit of the brand, distributor or consumer. In some instances there is crossover between the two, for example in minimizing waste in food distribution chains.
Focusing on industry collaboration and innovations that accelerate the commercial adoption of active and intelligent packaging, this industry driven conference unites the entire packaging value chain to discuss recent developments, emerging opportunities, and application advancements for the entire supply chain, including manufacturers, retailers, brand owners and CPGs.
What brand owners want is a usable product that adds real value to their brand – without major on-cost – not just a technology or sub-component, or a product that is simply a short-term gimmick. They also want to see active and intelligent packaging developers collaborate, and seek input from design houses and packaging manufacturers, to evolve these total finished solutions.
With hybrid ticket options available for this year's conference, you can choose to join us on site in Chicago, or as a virtual attendee, with full remote access to live-streamed presentations and innovative networking opportunities within our online event platform.
