Institute of Packaging Professionals joins Association Partner Program for Pack Expo Connects

The Institute of Packaging Professionals (IoPP) has announced its participation in the Association Partner Program at Pack Expo Connects 2020, produced by the PMMI Media Group.

During the show, virtual attendees will be able to visit IoPP’s virtual showroom to get information on IoPP’s valuable member benefits, view the 2020 AmeriStar Award winners, learn more about how IoPP has been keeping the industry connected through the pandemic and chat with an IoPP representative.

“IoPP is thrilled to participate in the Association Partner program at Pack Expo Connects,” says Jane Chase, executive director, IoPP. “The strategic alliance that IoPP has forged with PMMI has already paid dividends to both organisations and brought together key packaging communities to strengthen the packaging industry overall.”

IoPP will be taking part in two educational events during the show:

  • The Jumpstart session (Tuesday 10 November from 9-10 am Central Time), Workforce Development, will feature a segment from Jane Chase, executive director, IoPP, discussing the findings of IoPP’s 2020 Salary Survey during this session.
  • The Pack Expo Connects Solution Room session (Friday 13 November from 12-12:45 pm central time), Maximizing the Value of LinkedIn: The Packaging Professionals Edition, will provide insights on using LinkedIn for business development/marketing, engineers and supply chain.

“We’re grateful to our Partner Associations for their enthusiastic support of Pack Expo Connects,” says Joe Angel, president, PMMI Media Group. “While we wait for in-person events to reopen, we look forward to reconnecting virtually with association members and their business partners during Pack Expo Connects week this November.”
