Packaging Trends, Technology and Other Interesting Stuff

Packaging Trends, Technology and Other Interesting Stuff
by JoAnn Hines Packaging Diva

What happens during the dog days of summer months when all good intentions go the way of fun and vacations? Well, business marches on and it with it often comes major house cleaning (AKA-eliminating jobs). I guess they think people won't notice. The important point is that you don't always see it coming. But keeping your visibility and skill sets current can help. That's why I created Packaging News You Can Use (PNYCU). I know you are busy just keeping your head above water but seriously you can't lose site of the big picture. You have to know what is going on in and about your industry. That's what my e-zine is all about keeping you informed and knowledgeable about packaging news and issues that could impact your career and your business. Take a short test:Can you list five packaging trends that will impact the future of the industry? What two new US packaging trade shows have been established for 05/06? Do you know the names of the two companies with recent announcements of job layoffs (major players)? Can you name three packaging conferences where you could be a speaker or an attendee? Name four packaging industry associations?Can you describe at least two demographic trends that will impact your business/career? What three new packaging innovations do you consider significant? We'll see how you do. I will compile the answers and send the entire list to anyone that responds to the questionnaire.

Happy Dog Days!
