ISTA European Symposium - Distribution Packaging 06.-07.11.2012

Learn about future trends and solutions

The 4th ISTA European Packaging Symposium, organized by ISTA and the Fraunhofer Institute, will be held November 6 & 7 at Fraunhofer’s facilities in the Dortmund, Germany.

The 2012 Edition will provide insight and benefit to delegates on the critical link between packaging and effective distribution of products, focusing on cost savings and delivering against sustainability requirements, core components of ISTA’s mission. We are looking for presentations that will give a practical overview on economic and environmental optimization of distribution packaging development focusing on packaging improvements/developments that have solved business problems or met business objectives or on test methodologies that have supported packaging development. They should demonstrate technical issues and business benefits, but must not be an advertisement for products/materials or a sales process for products/materials or a company.

The symposium focuses mainly on REAL CASES, due to their high added value for the attendees. Also academic presentations will be included in the Symposium program. The presentations should last around 30 minutes. ISTA Symposium Program Committee will select high-quality topics for oral presentation.
