What’s In a Box? A Packaging and Shipping Overview

Just about every product needs a package….cookies, toothpaste, Band Aids, remote controls, pens, televisions and computers….you get the idea.  Even items that don’t require packaging need identifying information.

Packaging can range from very expensive retail packaging to corrugated boxes and bubble packs.  How do you decide what is “right” for your product?

Join this session to learn more about:

  • The role packaging plays in telling your story.
  • The impact that distribution strategies can have on packaging decisions.
  • How packaging can affect price competitiveness.
  • Where packaging decisions need to reside in the product development lifecycle.

This is a “must attend” session for anyone making, selling, or distributing products.
