DuPont Co. to sponsor the Conference at PACK EXPO education program

The Packaging Machinery Manufacturers Institute (PMMI), owner and producer of PACK EXPO International 2012, says DuPont has signed on as sponsor of the Conference at PACK EXPO education program. The conference runs Oct. 29-31, concurrently with PACK EXPO International 2012, Oct. 28-31, at Chicago’s McCormick Place.

The Conference at PACK EXPO is a primary building block in PACK EXPO’s customer-centric agenda, and DuPont’s sponsorship strengthens it even further, says Chuck Yuska, president and CEO of PMMI. “This year’s conference theme is Educate. Innovate. Advance,” he points out. “And DuPont’s reputation as an innovator complements and strengthens that statement.”

“Insights into important trends and issues, such as food security, gained at the conference will help further innovation in the packaging industry,” says Jon Kemp, North America marketing and sales director for DuPont Packaging. “And the fact that PMMI has partnered with other organizations in the programming reflects DuPont's own belief that collaboration among organizations is the best way to accelerate progress.”

To generate programming relevant to customers attending the show and conference, PMMI turned to partner organizations to craft and present the sessions, which will focus on such topics as food safety and product security, sustainability and packaging materials, trends and innovations, manufacturing solutions and more.

“In addition to the sponsorship by DuPont, our conference partners have created programs that offer attendees unrivaled professional development and business insight opportunities,” Yuska adds.

Those conference partners include the Alliance for Innovation & Operational Excellence (AIOE), Association for Automatic Identification and Mobility (AIM), Institute of Packaging Professionals (IoPP), International Society of Beverage Technologists (ISBT), PAC—The Packaging Association, PMMI U and Reusable Packaging Association (RPA).
