August 31 from 1-5pm EST, TekniExpo will feature materials science presentations, breakout sessions and “virtual booths.” 

Wayne, PA – TekniPlex Consumer Products, a globally integrated provider of innovative solutions through materials science and manufacturing technologies, is launching an immersive, next-level cyber experience to showcase its broad capabilities and product portfolios for the fresh food market. 

To officially kick off its Mytaverse environment, the TekniPlex division will host an online event comprising a series of materials science presentations, “virtual booths,” and breakout sessions. Called TekniExpo, the event occurs August 31 from 1-5pm EST. Those wishing to attend can register here

Far from mere spectators, those participating in the event will enjoy a truly interactive experience. Attendees will have their own avatars, and be free to discover the cyber-environment and interact with others throughout the virtual exhibit space. The result is a level of networking difficult to replicate in traditional online forums, as well as more impactful knowledge sharing opportunities. 

The setup is ideal to explore the wide array of materials science capabilities TekniPlex Consumer Products brings to the food & beverage sector. The event also will feature two keynote speakers:

1:30–2:30pm: Suzanne Shelton, President & CEO of Shelton Group, a leading ESG marketing and communications agency, will present Sustainability Drivers in the Packaging Market

2:30–3:30pm: Joel Morales, Executive Director, Polyolefins for IHS Index, presents Resin Trends in the Market.

Beginning at 3:30pm, TekniExpo will host breakout rooms featuring “virtual booths” staffed by TekniPlex experts on specific packaging solutions and substrates. These include dedicated cyber-spaces for: 

  • Processor Trays for Fresh Protein
  • The Future of Foaming
  • Fiber Substrates & Fresh Food
  • Dairy & Ice Cream
  • Shelf Stable Foods
  • Coffee Pods
  • Food Ware & Foodservice
  • Sustainability’s 4Rs

“This event presents an exciting opportunity for us to connect with our audiences in a more meaningful way in these digital times to deepen our understanding of their packaging needs, so we can continue to create innovative, sustainable materials science solutions that help our customers meet their business goals,” said Carlos Tapias, Vice President & General Manager, Fresh Food North America.
