Unique Women in Packaging forum to be held at Interpack 2023

By women for women: interpack will be launching a new Women in Packaging event for the first time on the 8th of May and everyone is invited to attend.

Interpack is proud to support women with their own event, and within the framework of the trade fair, to contribute to a diverse industry, to provide opportunities for more young talent to come in to the industry and for better chances for developing a long term career in a global community.

Under the title ‘Women in Packaging’, interpack will be hosting an inaugural event on the 8th of May explicitly designed to learn more about the women in the wider packaging and processing industries and Nerida Kelton, vice president sustainability & save food, World Packaging Organisation will be the moderator for this exciting panel discussion.

Historically the packaging and processing industry has been predominantly shaped by men and until the last few decades women in leading positions are especially rare across the globe.

Globally we are seeing a scarcity of trained professionals in the industry and the ‘Women in Packaging’ forum at interpack will draw attention to barriers, challenges and opportunities for all women across the world to see the industry as an attractive place to establish a long-term career.

The five panellists are Unique Women in Packaging that are internationally successful, pioneers in their areas, marketing experts and founders of companies, role models and inspirations for others in this exciting industry we all work in.

This event will allow attendees to not only learn from the panelists successes, challenges and career pathways but you will also be able to profit from their advice, learnings and recommendations.

Sharing their experiences on the panel are Valentina Aureli, CEO of Aetna Group in Italy, Dr. Afsaneh Nabifar, group leader for the global market development of biopolymers at BASF, Australian Nadia Taylor, co-founder and director tna solutions, Marjo Halonen, vice president communications at Metsä Board Corporation in Finland and Gabi Bauer, head of marketing & communications at Uhlmann Pac-Systeme.

The ‘Women in Packaging’ forum will take place at interpack on 8 May at 12:00 pm in the International Lounge on the ground floor of the trade fair skyscraper and all of industry is invited to attend this very important  inaugural event for the global processing and packaging industries.

The event is supported by the WPO – World Packaging Organisation.
