Dear Sir / Madam,

VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland is honoured to host the 26th IAPRI Symposium on PackagingJune 10-13 2013 on Otaniemi campus – ranked as one of the most innovative European regions – next to beautiful Baltic sea in Espoo, Finland. The symposium will be arranged under the banner of “Towards safe and sustainable solutions”. The preparation for the event is underway and proceeding as planned. Information will be updated to the symposium website to be launched spring 2012.

The symposium will cover but not limit to areas, such as packaging materials, sustainability and safety, packaging of different goods and distribution packaging, consumer perception, package printing, active and intelligent packaging, packaging design and innovations, testing and standards, machinery and systems, and packaging legislation and education. We anticipate at least 100 presentations / posters as well as several keynote speeches.

VTT is committed to make the symposium both professionally valuable and memorable event for the expected 150 participants representing current and invited potential members of IAPRI both from academia and industry worldwide. Currently IAPRI has 79 members in 29 countries (

We are looking for sponsors to help us meet this goal. Symposium sponsorship provides a unique possibility to promote your products and expertise, and to network with the packaging experts.

We provide two sponsorship packages: Main Sponsor (6,000 €) and Sponsor (3,000 €).

Looking forward to hearing from you.
