Package Design Matters Conference
It’s a one-of-a-kind event crafted to not only bring the industry together, but also deliver a more personalized and relevant conference experience—one that elevates the collaborative design process and emphasizes its strategic business value. And it all takes place in 2017 from January 24-26 in the luxurious setting of the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa in Bonita Springs FL (conveniently tucked between Ft. Myers and Naples, Florida) making it the perfect escape during one of the coldest months of the year.
Drawing on feedback from CPG budget-holders and decision-makers, as well as their agency and supplier partners, we’ve crafted Package Design Matters Conference with three primary objectives in mind:
- Foster community and make meaningful connections as you meet and mingle with like-minded brand owners, retailers and agency leaders
- Deliver a more inspiring and actionable educational event as industry visionaries share how they’ve successfully elevated design to be a strategic power player in the CPG marketing mix
- Provide a higher ROI than any other conference in the CPG design marketplace
No other event in the industry has such a specialized focus. It’s three days of design dialogue centered on best practices, evolving trends and smart strategies for maximizing ROI.
