Following the announcement from Brunton Business Publications Ltd regarding the launch of ConneXion, AICC, The Independent Packaging Association — has become the first Association Partner.
ConneXion is a new online community information channel, launched by the owners of The Packaging Portal (www.thepackagingportal.com) and publisher of magazines including International Paper Board Industry and Corrugated Today.
The new platform goes live on Monday, November 2. 2020. In the launch phase, the community will gather in a virtual expo and webinar environment, before transitioning to a web-based information channel. The community will be fed information within a web-browser experience as well as an app that can be downloaded to a smartphone.
“As content providers to the global corrugated industry, it is important that we find ways of keeping converters around the world ‘connected’ with their suppliers,” explains Daniel Brunton, CEO of Brunton Business Publications Ltd. “Due to the postponement of industry events in 2020 and early 2021, there is a very real need to keep people connected, engaged and informed. Harnessing the latest technology, ConneXion brings converters and suppliers closer together at a time where we struggle to travel and meet in person. ConneXion is a dedicated channel, meaning all the content you see is 100 percent relevant to the industry. The partners in the launch phase total 29; these companies are businesses that we have hand picked, as they clearly have digital communication at the heart of their marketing strategy. ConneXion is a media-rich environment that allows machinery and service suppliers to help create meaningful and educational content that will assist converters in getting the best equipment or services for the growth of their own businesses.”
“AICC sees tremendous potential in ConneXion and the use of tools on the leading edge of the technology revolution,” says Michael D’Angelo, President of AICC. “It will be a new way to interact with our existing members and showcase AICC to potential new members. ConneXion represents an excellent opportunity to keep our boxmaker members connected with AICC associate members at a time where we cannot physically meet or network.”
