Revolutionizing the Packaging Industry Through AI and Innovation

AICC, The Independent Packaging Association, is excited to announce the AI Xperience Conference, May 14-16, 2024, in Chicago, IL. Co-located with the Chicago TAPPI trade fair, this conference promises to introduce you to the revolution in the way packaging will be manufactured by integrating Artificial Intelligence (AI), and what you need to do to be prepared.

“The AI Xperience will cover intriguing topics such as generative AI, machine learning, and their application in enhancing packaging management strategies. With these innovative tools, we can predict machine maintenance needs, foresee system failures, and extract valuable insights from our ERP and shop floor data systems. Additionally, the Conference will delve into understanding customer demographics, identifying potential clients, and analyzing our market performance. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn about the latest advancements in generative AI and how they can significantly improve our business operations now and in the future,” said Jeff Putt, Managing Director at Deline Box & Display and Chair of the AICC Artificial Intelligence Sub-committee. 

Discover how AI can automate repetitive, labor-intensive tasks, allowing your workforce to focus on more complex and creative roles. Learn better ways to handle predictive maintenance and gather insights from production processes and customer orders, identifying trends, cost-saving opportunities, and areas for improvement.

Attendees will engage with industry leaders and visionaries during sessions which include: 

·       What AI Can & Can’t Do, Impact of AI on Graphic Design

·       AI & Machine Learning in Manufacturing

·       Using Generative AI in Business & Manufacturing 

·       Using AI for Workflow Automation Design

·       Generative AI and Data Security Issues

“As a manufacturer, you want to know what is happening in the plant. You may want to know the top order, the shipping day, and machine problems. And you want this information without having to create reports manually. AI facilitates a quicker, more accurate rate of knowing what is happening in your plant 24 hours a day. Education and training, office support, and production work is where AI is going to make a difference,” said Greg Tucker, President and CEO, Bay Cities. The AI Xperience will delve into real-world solutions to packaging manufacturing and leveraging Artificial Intelligence. 

Attendees will connect with industry professionals and subject matter experts, share ideas, and build relationships that will shape the future of packaging.

Previous AICC Xperiences have informed members on the revolutions brought by digital printing; eCommerce; and emerging brand owner demands,” said Mike D’Angelo, AICC President. “AI is going to revolutionize manufacturing and the AI Xperience is going to explore the advantages, savings, improvements, and challenges that AI will bring to box makers.”

Participants can harness AI’s power to transform packaging manufacturing.
