NEW PACKAGING SHOWCASE - $295
DEADLINE: Friday, September 16, 2011
Do you have new and improved packaging? We have a new and improved New Packaging Showcase for you to present it in! AAPEX has partnered with the Institute of Packaging Professionals to update the New Packaging Showcase to reflect the highest standards of packaging design in the industry.
Packaging is more than just the box that holds your product. It can educate the purchaser about your product, or market the product just by sitting on the shelf. Whether your new packaging is innovative, protective or “green,” it has a place in the improved New Packaging Showcase.
Included With Each Entry:
* A picture of your product, description, booth number and a link to your company web site on the official AAPEX web site. Instructions for submitting your images will be provided in a confirmation letter following payment in full.
* All entries received before September 16, 2011 will be judged online by a panel of judges from the Institute of Packaging Professionals. Winners will be announced on Tuesday, November 1 at 10:00 a.m. Entries received after September 16 will appear in the on site showcase, but will not be eligible for judging.
Entry Fee: $295 per entry!
