IoPP to Honor AmeriStar Winners at EastPack Expo
The Institute of Packaging Professionals (IoPP) announced it will be honoring members at the EastPack conference and exposition June 18-20 in Philadelphia for the most innovative packages of the year.
IoPP will recognize the winners of its annual AmeriStar Package Awards Competition. Categories include frozen, refrigerated, and shelf stable foods, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, drug and pharmaceutical, cosmetics, electronics, health and beauty aids, household products, industrial/commercial products, medical devices, promotional/display, private label and more.
"Packaging has become a key differentiator among products and innovative package design generates retail distribution, communicates important product attributes, increases product sales, and ensures their safe distribution," said Patrick Farrey, executive director for IoPP. "We decided that EastPack is the right platform from which to present the AmeriStar awards because of its proximity to the largest number of manufacturers in the U.S. and the added visibility that winners will gain via the multiple shows produced annually by UBM Canon."
EastPack was created in 1985 and is now a comprehensive integrated manufacturing event that includes Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M) East, Automation Technology Expo (ATX) East, Atlantic Design & Manufacturing, PLASTEC East, Pharmapack North America and Sustainability in Manufacturing, according to IoPP.
