The change of name to the Australian Packaging and Processing Machinery Association Limited has now been joined by another name change, AUSPACK PLUS.
Since the AUSPACK event was established it has been very much a packaging machinery trade display. However, due to its success more companies allied to the packaging machinery sector have requested to become involved, including suppliers of processing machinery, packaging and processing technology, plastics and other allied products.
After much discussion the AUSPACK Sub Committee, a very active group led by Rob Marguccio, recommended to the APPMA Board that the event be renamed AUSPACK PLUS to cater for members who are more than packaging machinery suppliers and a much broader range of potential exhibitors.
The first event under the new name, AUSPACK PLUS 2011 will be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, March 22 - 25, 2011.
