Packaging Squad Expert sessions
September 8, 2022


On Thursday September 8, 2022, we organise our first Packaging Squad Expert Sessions sharing the challenges and opportunities of packaging design and innovation in Europe! 

The Packaging Squad is an initiative of 4 industry innovators: One Inch Whale, iVisual, Athena Graphics and doQmind. We want you to be one step ahead of your competitors by objectifying, optimising and accelerating your packaging design process.

Silvia Scheers (AP Solutions, former Panasonic) will share how they objectified and optimised their packaging development. Julie Dumoulin (winner of the VIGC-EU Packaging innovation Hackaton) will take you on a journey of data-driven packaging and product design. 

An excellent beginning to kick off the interactive expert debate with our experienced panel:

• Julie Dumoulin, Founder Opinry
• Peter Hulsmans, former VP of Kodak, now CEO of doQmind
