Packaging has a direct impact on every person and every business, every day. But do we really know much about it? How it was sourced? Designed? Created? Shipped? Or delivered? Turns out, there’s a lot to learn.

At Packaging Unwrapped Sessions, we’re eager to do exactly that. How? By having great conversations from people who really DO know about sourcing and sustainability, about safety and design, and about challenges and opportunities.

As we connect and chat with industry experts, we’d love for you to join us in learning more and more about an industry that is easy to overlook, but whose impact is almost impossible to overestimate. We hope that these sessions engage you with the content and conversations themselves, but, even more importantly, that they empower you to go out and make real improvements.
