The Institute of Packaging Professionals will be developing a one-day packaging education conference, which will take place on June 19th, 2013, at HBA Global Expo in New York City.

IoPP plans five, 75-minute presentations that will be developed through its Packaging Learning Center. The sessions will explore branding, materials and other trends involving packaging. The presentation topics will be developed for health and beauty industry audiences, but will also include information that is valuable in general in elevating packaging's role as part of business strategies at consumer product companies.

"These presentations will enable our packaging experts to get suitable, on-trend information about packaging in front of health and beauty industry professionals," said Patrick Farrey, executive director, IoPP.

Jim George, IoPP's director of education, added: "Our agreement gives IoPP another new opportunity to serve its educational mission within the packaging community. We are pleased to have this opportunity at HBA Global Expo & Conference, which has been a vital event for the health and beauty community for two decades."

Jill Birkett, brand director, Beauty & Wellness for UBM Live, which is the show's producer, stated, "We are thrilled to partner with IoPP and offer our attendees these sessions that will enhance their brand and professional success."
