AIP continues partnership with AWRE

The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) partners again with the Australasian Waste and Recycling Expo (AWRE) to host three educational events and a new Packaging Pavilion. This collaboration includes two complimentary packaging sessions, a mini training course, and an exhibition stand in the Packaging Pavilion. All AIP activities contribute points towards the Certified Packaging Professional (CPP) designation.

AIP Packaging Pavilion

Launching in July 2024, the AIP has developed an innovative packaging pavilion specifically for its member companies. This pavilion offers a reduced-cost package to help members showcase their packaging solutions to a broader industry audience, including councils, government bodies, and the waste and recycling sector. Limited stands are available, so members are encouraged to book in early.

The three educational sessions are as follows:

AIP Packaging Session 1: How to Meet Global and Regional Packaging Design Standards – 24 July – NSW EPA Theatre – 11:15 am – 12:15 pm 

This session will offer guidance on designing packaging that complies with the upcoming Federal Government’s National Packaging Design Standards, the new EU Packaging & Packaging Waste Regulations, and the Sustainable Packaging Design Guidelines. It will explore global design guides like the WPO Global Packaging Design for Recycling Guide. The session will highlight award-winning sustainable packaging designs recognised by WorldStar and PIDA for their innovation.
