The International Safe Transit Association (ISTA) is calling for packaging and logistics experts to speak at its European Packaging Symposium 2019.
Taking place in Amsterdam, Netherlands from 5th – 7th March, the event will focus on ‘Industry 4.0: Packaging Innovation and Impacts in a Transforming World’. This will showcase the latest packaging trends, opportunities and challenges, and consider what the future holds in a rapidly changing market.
The annual event, now in its seventh year, is the biggest transport packaging forum in Europe and attracts around 100 senior professionals spanning packaging design and manufacturing, distribution, retail and ecommerce, marketing and sustainability.
Previous events have featured experts from organisations including IKEA, Coca-Cola, Sealed Air, the Fraunhofer Institute for Material Flow and Logistics, and UPS.
