PAC—The Packaging Association is once again hosting its annual Awards Gala for the PAC Leadership Awards & Competition. Back in 2008, PAC was the first to initiate a sustainable packaging competition.

At the gala, the long-running awards competition will reward excellence in all formats of packaging, in grinding and graphic design, in technical aspects and in sustainability.

Entries for the awards competition are from a print production run, have been designed or manufactured in North America, or distributed for sale to consumers in North America.

This years event features greater recognition to the long-established importance of packaging via in-store marketing categories: display merchandiser; display ready packaging; display ready pallets, and; retail ready packaging.

Although the deadline to enter the competition passed on January 18, 2013, the Awards Gala will be held on April 22, 2013—Earth Day, so keep that date open to attend the event!

While still in the planning stage, the event will be held at the Mississauga Convention Centre.

5PM – cocktails
6:30PM – dinner and awards ceremony.

Although registration for the event is not yet posted on the PAC site, Canadian Packaging magazine will keep you updated.
