The Australian Institute of Packaging has been invited to host this year's WorldStar Packaging awards, to be held alongside AUSPACK PLUS 2013.
According to Ralph Moyle, national president of the AIP, this is a unique opportunity for the Australasian packaging industry to be part of an international event.
"There will be an international contingent of WPO Board members and award winners from across the globe coming to Australia for this event and we would like to extend an invitation to the entire packaging community to be a part of this significant night," he said.
The 2013 WorldStar Packaging Awards will be held on Thursday 9 May at the Novotel Sydney Olympic Park, alongside AUSPLACK PLUS 2013.
The WorldStar Packaging Awards is run by the World Packaging Organisation and is now in its 45th year. Last year the event attracted 243 entries from 32 countries around the world.
The AIP will also be running its biennial National Technical Forum in the day on 9 May, with the theme ‘Global Packaging Trends’.
