The Active and Intelligent Packaging Summit Americas, co-produced by the Active and Intelligent Packaging Association (AIPIA) and BXP (Brand Experience magazine), will be held on 3 and 4 June, 2019 at the Westin Jersey City Newport, New Jersey.
The Active and Intelligent Packaging Summit Americas brings together consumer-facing and retail brands and developers of packaging solutions to explore how the latest technologies can reinvent the entire value chain. It will feature two days of presentations offering a complete overview of these disruptive technologies and how brand owners and marketers are commercializing them for the strongest ROI. In addition, the event will have exhibits from best-in-class suppliers and provide ample networking opportunities.
“We’re very pleased to be returning to the U.S. after such a successful first year. The Summit is the only North American event covering the active and intelligent packaging sector in its entirety to offer a complete overview of where the market is today and, more importantly, where it is headed,” said Eef de Ferrante, executive director of AIPIA, based in Utrecht, The Netherlands.
The 2019 program will feature the Packaging Innovation Challenge by Mondelez, which will be challenging active and intelligent packaging companies to come up with solutions for some of the most famous snack brands in the world. Companies will have just a few minutes to pitch their ideas to the snacks giant, and convince them why their particular packaging solution will add value to a single brand or group of brands within the Mondelez portfolio.
Experts such as Digimarc, E-ink, PragmatIC, Talkin Things, Thin Film, Pack-Smart, EVRYTHNG, Wiliot and Zappar will discuss real applications as well as the latest active and intelligent packaging developments, research and trends. While Deloitte, VTT and Cambridge Design Partnership will offer insights about the way ahead.
Topics that will be covered include the tangible benefits of smart labels; bringing connecivity to everyday items; value creation using smart, reusable packaging; packages that talk; and smart packaging for hot consumer experiences.
