Hey everyone, I got an email this morning that some of you might be interested in answering. Take a look below, and feel free to reach out to him if you’d like to make a presentation on the needs of cannabis packaging in our industry:


I am on the board of directors for the Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) and we are hosting a conference this fall in Phoenix focused on flexible packaging. We would like to invite you to present your overview of the cannabis market in North America and the wants’ and needs relative to packaging. We are cohosting the conference with The Association of International Metallizers, Coaters and Laminators (AIMCAL).

The audience in attendance would be the prime target for the development of optimal packaging for the industry.

Some topics that I know they would be interested in;

  • Overview of market
  • Trends
  • How cannabis is packaged today
  • How it will be packaged in the future
  • What are the unmet needs in packaging

Here are some links to the conference and how to register your presentation.

If you are not interested in presenting, we would really appreciate suggestions of people who would be.

I gave him a few recommendations for some of the grow operations and dispensaries I’ve spoken with for Growers Spotlights, but I suspect some of you may be interested in the opportunity as well.
