PMMI Renews Relationship with WorldStar Awards

RESTON VA | PMMI, (The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies) reports that due to the prestige of the WorldStar Awards, the global packaging competition organized by the World Packaging Organisation (WPO), US WPO member and organizer and producer of the PACK EXPO portfolio of trade shows, has renewed its sponsorship of the WorldStar Awards Ceremony for the next two years (2018 and 2019). This year the gala ceremony and dinner will take place on May 2 on Gold Coast, Australia. 

The ceremony is scheduled for the same week as the first WPO Board Meeting of 2018 and will be hosted by local member Australian Institute of Packaging. On the same night, winners of the ANZ PIA Awards, the Australian/New Zealand packaging competition, will be announced.
