Registrations for the free to attend AUSPACK 2017, taking place at Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park on 7 – 10 March 2017 are now open.
AUSPACK 2017 is on track to be the biggest Sydney show in its history coinciding with the recent announcement that with five months out, 95% of exhibition space has already been sold. “Visitors can expect a number of new elements to this year’s offering on the exhibition floor,” said Exhibition Director Luke Kasprzak.
“We’re always looking for ways to innovate, which includes the ongoing strategic partnership with the Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) and their full schedule industry-led educational forum and this year’s launch of a dedicated Processing Day which is sure to attract the interest of the food and beverage processing industry at our free, four day event.” “As the industry moves towards smarter engineering, data, automation and robotics become key so it is imperative we highlight this trend on the show floor. Other trends featured include food safety and hygiene, active and intelligent packaging and a continued focus on food processing.”
Leading exhibitors include Walls Machinery, insignia, Case Packaging Systems, Biotec Solutions, Matthews, Contract Packaging Systems and Visy and major international exhibitors include Cama, Concetti, Multiplex Packaging, Qimarox and Krueger & Salecker Mascinenbau.
Some highlights on display will include the recently launched Ishida X-ray inspection systems, an Australian First Multi Flex1 Twin Stretch Hooder from Danish company Lachenmeier, intelli-flav OMS 5 a new seasoning system from tna and new Shrink Tunnels for robotic packaging from AUTOPACK.
“It’s all about maximising the visitor’s time while onsite at AUSPACK 2017 to ensure their business objectives are met and their expectations exceeded,” said Mr Kasprzak.
“As Australasia’s most comprehensive, free, food, beverage and pharmaceutical processing and packaging exhibition, there is a lot to pack into four days so we want to make their experience as simple and useful as possible.”
Concurrent events include the Official Networking Drinks, on the first day for exhibitors and VIP Visitors to network and unwind, the 2017 AIP National Technical Forums and the inaugural Packaging and Innovation Design Awards (PIDA).
