US – Registration has opened for Industrial Pack 2019 which claims the title of the only event actually dedicated to industrial, in transit, and protective packaging, and will be held at the Cobb Galleria Centre, Atlanta, Georgia 27-28 March next year. The free-to-attend, two day conference and expo will appeal to anyone in the freight carriage, road haulage and forwarding sectors to stay abreast of modern packaging materials and techniques.

The event aims to tackle some of the biggest industry challenges and explore exciting opportunities in smart packaging, sustainability, alternative materials, innovation, security, legislation and the future of packaging in industry. It was created in response to industrial packaging engineers, technicians and purchasers wanting an exhibition dedicated purely to industrial, transit and protective packaging without processing or machinery.

With the industrial packaging industry forecast to grow by 19%, reaching $78.3 billion in 2020, the need for a platform to showcase new and existing specialist products and techniques was clear to many in the industry, as exhibitor and aluminium bottle producer Elemental Container Inc., a fully owned subsidiary of Tournaire SA of France, confirmed through the comments of Sales Manager, Benoit Ramet, who said:

“There is simply no packaging show specialised in industrial packaging. We are either buried in the middle of consumer products or machinery. We hope to have a well-targeted audience.”

Industrial Pack, launched last year, brings together suppliers in this industry, who will be showcasing packaging solutions to transport every type of product, from hazardous materials and dangerous goods to automotive parts, building materials, industrial machinery, bulk food and drink and much more.

Packaging formats on show will include drums and pails, IBCs, pallets, dunnage air bags, corrugated board packaging, and much more to help buyers and supply chain professionals solve their industrial, transit and protective packaging challenges.
