ISTA's TransPack Forum delivered 30 unique presentations to over 250 attendees this past April at Disney's Yacht & Beach Club in Orlando, Florida. Industry experts from around the world delivered a balance of practical applications, case studies and technical information while exploring the latest ideas and trends in transport packaging. New this year, the Forum program featured an afternoon of very informative, dedicated tracks on Sustainability, Pharma and Testing of Tomorrow. The Sustainability track included presenters from Trayak, Dell Technologies and UPS while the Pharma track included presenters from Eli Lilly, Bristol Meyers Squibb and The Illuminate Group. The Testing of Tomorrow track featured presentations on Big Data and Its Impact on Package Testing and Design by Axiom, ISTA, Specright and Sealed Air and concluded with an interactive Q&A on Multi-Axis Vibration Testing by Atlantic Packaging, Clemson University, Diversified Technical Systems and Lansmont. The popular networking opportunities at the Forum allowed attendees to meet industry peers while sharing insights and solutions. Forum attendees were invited to a private welcome reception held at Epcot's American Adventure Rotunda where they enjoyed dinner, drinks, music, and friendship beneath the soaring rotunda. The special evening concluded with desserts at Italy's Isola Park and a front row view of Disney's premier nighttime spectacular, IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth! This event was made possible by our Diamond Sponsors Pregis, PCA, Lansmont and Atlantic Packaging. A large number of exhibitors presented their products and services at the Exhibitor Reception the next evening. New relationships and business were cultivated in a relaxed setting where attendees were able to enjoy a great spread of food. Thank you to all of the exhibitors and attendees that made this year's reception successful! On Thursday evening, teams of 6 competed at the annual TransPack Forum Beach Volleyball Tournament. Players and spectators had a lot of fun and the competition and networking were great. Thank you to Platinum Sponsors TLS, Smithers Pira, SGS, L.A.B. Equipment and DDL for supporting this event and making it possible. ISTA's 2017 TransPack Forum Highlights! 2 ista views • July 2017 • > MORE ON PAGE 3
