Founding sponsors of the event are Ampacet, a global manufacturer of color and additive masterbatches, that provides consumer goods companies with colors and special effects for their plastic products and packaging; and TricorBraun, a leading source of rigid packaging, with extensive capabilities in package design and engineering, logistics and international sourcing. Exhibitors include Auraline Beauty, Brad-Pak Enterprises, Global Packaging Inc. and PHCP Inc.
"We are excited to debut this virtual event and be able to create a worldwide on-line environment that will allow those in the industry to gain knowledge, share information and interact with each other, without leaving their office," says Jill Birkett, brand director, beauty and wellness, HBA Global. "For those who weren't able to attend the ‘live' HBA event, they will be exposed to important products, sources and innovations to help build their brands and fuel their product development initiatives."
