Designed “for the industry, by the industry,” a new packaging education and training program will soon address the industry’s most pressing concerns and challenges: the [PACK]out conference — which takes place in Austin, Texas, from May 10-12, 2022 — aims to deliver relevant, actionable content that maximizes attendees’ investment.

The program features curated tracks designed to help packaging professionals of any level hone skills, fill knowledge gaps, and anticipate future needs. Sessions cover technical skills, innovation, leadership and management, ASTM standards, and more.

The event, which operates like a nonprofit, will reinvest revenue back in the industry via scholarships, testing and research, and other ideas still in the works.

Attendance is limited and almost sold out. If interested, packaging professionals at medical device manufacturers (MDMs) should register immediately.

 

Building an agenda that matters.

Organizers are still finalizing content and identifying speakers. However, the basic agenda gives you a sense of the quality and relevance of the topics and experts.

“Wicked Stability: Predicting the Aging Degradation of Materials”

The effect of real-time aging, post sterilization, on commonly available sterile barrier packaging systems (SBS) materials is not significant. Therefore, it is proposed that aging of the typical Materials of Construction (MOC) for SBSs does not need to start from time zero, but rather knowledge of material science supported by data demonstrates that certain MOC combinations and Modalities of Sterility (MOS) treatments could be placed on market with a known and supported minimum shelf life.
Speakers:
