My Thoughts: As our first packaging- and converting-industry technical seminar/Webinar/conference, etc., the “COVER YOUR ASSets” presentation is timed and located to benefit professionals across the entire supply chain. That includes providers of converting raw materials and machinery, packaging materials and machinery, as well as brand owners and packaged-goods makers. Heck, anyone visiting either show that day at McCormick Place. So, come and learn the basics of protecting your latest invention.
