“AUSPACK 2019 is the largest ever, with four days of fantastic displays and informative events. I encourage those in the packaging and processing industry to make sure they have registered for the free exhibition, and have tickets to all events they know they will benefit from all ready to go for next week,” he said.

Running parallel to the exhibition is the AUSPACK 2019 Business and Industry Conference, which will delve into a number of manufacturing trends including Industry 4.0 and smart factories, and how to implement these technologies into a company’s operations.

“For a business owner or manager, understanding not only what ‘smart supply chains’ and factories of the future are, but how to implement them in their own business, is important in ensuring sustainability of that business,” said Dingley.

Also on the agenda is the NextGen Breakfast Forum, which will give attendees insight into attracting and managing Generation Z workers; the APPMA Awards of Excellence; and a number of networking events including drinks and a Japanese-style Izakaya Lounge.

Registration for the exhibition and associated events is open now.
