As a comparatively horizontal industry tied to the performance of many vertical markets, packaging fluctuates with the demand for packaging of products that vary from consumer goods and appliances to medical devices. Next-generation plastics will play a huge role in increased efficiency and reduced costs for packaging machinery and processes, and NPE2018 will cover all of the potential packaging implications. Consider these factors as they play out on the show floor, in private discussions, and in educational sessions.
The Plastics Industry Association announced a new round of programming for the 2018 Re|Focus Sustainability & Recycling Summit at NPE2018. Oliver Campbell, Director of Worldwide Procurement & Packaging at Dell Technologies, headlines the programming, which aims to address manufacturers’ real-world challenges with recycling and sustainable practices.
