The next Graphics Canada trade show, taking place from April 6 to 8, 2017, at the International Centre in Mississauga, Ont., is to host a new feature called intelliPACK, a collaboration between the associations of PAC and CPEIA.

PAC is a not-for-profit corporation that includes over 2,100 members throughout the packaging value chain. Established in 2014, the Canadian Printable Electronics Industry Association (CPEIA) focuses on the Canadian printable, flexible and wearable electronics sector and ecosystem.

intelliPACK will be a series of workshops focused on what the collaborators describe as smart packaging systems and printed electronics, including applications for high value-added products like wine and spirits, electronics, food & beverages, luxury, health and beauty, apparel and pharmaceuticals.

The applications will focus on, for example, products that help extend shelf life, monitor freshness, display information, improve safety, security and improve convenience. The workshops will feature brand owners and technology experts sharing their approaches and experiences with intelligent and smart packaging systems.
