For the first time since the pandemic, the Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) will be hosting the AIP Australasian Packaging Conference and the Australasian Packaging Innovation & Design (PIDA) Awards in person, in March 2023. The institute will also be celebrating its 60th anniversary in 2023.

The conference will be held on 28 and 29 March at the Crown Promenade, Melbourne, over a two-day educational program that covers topics relating to the theme 2025 & BEYOND. The awards will be run as a gala dinner event on 28 March.

Topics such as refusal, reduction, reuse, recycling and circularity will be covered in the conference as it will look at how various industries are heading towards the 2025 National Packaging Targets. The speakers will also look at what the industry needs to do to design out waste, eliminate problematic materials and reduce single-use plastic beyond 2025, and to ensure it is capable of collecting, sorting, recovering and recycling all the materials and packaging formats in Australia and New Zealand.

The event provides the opportunity to hear from experts in all areas of the waste hierarchy and to network with like-minded professionals. The event is expected to attract delegates from all facets of the food, beverage, pharmaceutical, manufacturing and packaging industries, including packaging technologists, designers and engineers, sustainability managers, marketing, sales, production, design agencies, equipment suppliers, raw material providers, users of packaging, retailers and consumers, environmental managers, procurement, quality teams, government and councils, and waste and recycling companies. The entire industry is invited to attend the conference.
