Search for rising stars of processing, packaging machinery industry

09 June 2011

The PPMA Show says it's searching for rising stars in the processing, packaging machinery industry

Do you have a colleague who has designed new technology that has increased the efficiency of your production line? Perhaps you work with someone who has won a string of top accounts, improving sales across the business? Or do you know someone whose entrepreneurial skills really set them apart from their contemporaries?

If the answer to any of the above is yes, then the PPMA Show would like to hear from you. To celebrate the return of the exhibition, taking place on 27-29 September 2011, the organisers have created a brand new feature – The Ones to Watch – which celebrates promising under 35 year olds who have made a real impression on the processing and packaging machinery industry.

Archana Sharma, PPMA Show Marketing Manager, explains: “There is such a wealth of young, untapped talent in the packaging and processing machinery industry and we wanted to celebrate it at this year’s show.

Nominations are by public vote, so by launching this new feature, we are offering a platform to recognise those individuals who have contributed so much and inspired those around them.”

Nominations are open to individuals – aged under 35 years or under – who have been working in any aspect of the processing and packaging machinery industry for a minimum of four years – be it production engineering, plant maintenance, machinery design, logistics and distribution, supply chain, purchasing, quality control, R&D, business development, marketing, customer service or finance.

Submissions must be made by a third party – such as a manager, mentor, employer or client – by 11 July 2011.

All entries will be reviewed and shortlisted by a panel of judges, made-up of some of the industry's most influential experts. Finalists will form part of an 'Achievement Gallery' at the event from 27-29 September 2011.

Article image Thinking outside the box…

The design brief for this product was to bring ‘bag in box’ wine into the 21st century. In order to do so, it was decided that wine in a box had to become ‘fashionable’. With the knowledge that 8 out of every 10 bottles of wine bought to drink at home are bought by women plus the knowledge that handbags are at the top of a woman’s most wanted list, the Vernissage Wine Handbag was, without doubt, the most obvious fashion choice.Full Story...
