Packaging 4.0

In the consumer packaged goods industry, a product's packaging plays a crucial role in its success. As the intermediary between consumer and product, packaging must strike a perfect balance between functionality and design, and it must do so within the constraints of technical and economic feasibility. To achieve harmony between all of these competing factors, you need packaging machines that are extremely flexible and fully automated. I will present our latest innovation in this area and give a better understanding in how to use Packaging 4.0

Packaging is truly the last frontier of true omni-channel marketing

Packaging is truly the last frontier of true omni-channel marketing. Despite being the most salient touchpoint between the consumer and the brand, the role of packaging has largely failed to keep up with the evolving habits of today’s shoppers, who are demanding more content, and demanding it in-store, online and at-home. Yet despite this dramatic opportunity for growth, many marketers and brands have failed to capitalize on new technologies that can link them directly with consumers.

Today the ultimate omni-channel option is the connected package, a 24/7 networked-package delivering enhanced product information to consumers, all without limitations or constraints from the package design or size. To be relevant, modern packaging needs to contain a pervasive network identity, making brands immediately accessible to the consumer for product information, tips, brand loyalty programs and more.

This presentation will educate marketing and retail professionals about how the latest mobile technology and packaging design creates a new channel for ongoing engagement with consumers, giving brands access to the kind of personalized post-purchase data, that until now, has largely been unavailable to them. These opportunities, with consumer permissions, allow the brand to know who are its buyers, in what region or location they shop, and their interests. It brings the anonymous shopper into the brand’s sphere for re-marketing. This new development is creating opportunities for a seamless and connected brand experience at every stage of the package journey.

Attendees will also learn:

How the GS1 standards body is supporting a world-wide movement toward the Connected PackageHow this new advancement in mobile technology and design enable a more compelling digital experience, while still maintaining the aesthetic integrity of packages
How with serialized digital printing, every single package or media object can have its own specific, unique identity
How optimized packaging bridges the gap between brand capabilities and consumer expectations, reaching shoppers in-aisle and post-purchase
How brands can deliver enticing digital product information and facilitate consumer engagement, building brand loyalty
