AN exclusive event for the movers and shapers of the food and beverage packaging industry will take place on the luxury cruiser, Sydney Showboat II, on 6 June 2006.
The Food and Beverage Packaging Business Forum 2006, organised by Australian Exhibition Services (AES) , is said to be a unique new ‘business matching’ event exclusive to 20 supplying companies and limited to a maximum of 100 buyers responsible for the procurement and development of packaging materials and packaging plant for the food and beverage sectors.
This one-day event will match suppliers to buyers in a series of meetings throughout the day.
In addition, there will be seminars presented by leading, respected industry members who will present case studies and share their packaging and plant integration experiences.
Participants will also enjoy the opportunity to network with their peers during breakfast, a gourmet lunch on-shore at five-star restaurant, Catalina’s, and catered breaks.
“This intimate new event sits well with our company’s principles and will help us to further develop our already strong customer relationships with the most senior packaging procurement and development managers within the food and beverage industry in Australia,” Heat and Control marketing manager Leigh Stegemann said.
Unilever Australasia foods packaging development manager Kevin McBrien one of the world’s largest food businesses, is positive about the benefits for prospective visitors such as himself.
“A supplier innovation day like this has ‘legs’ for the food and beverage packaging industry, creating an out-of-work opportunity for ideas and innovation to be discussed,” he said.
