Join us this November 23rd for The Dieline Conference Amsterdam.
The Dieline and Packaging Innovations have teamed up for a one-of-a-kind, free-to-attend conference, kicking off at Packaging Innovations Amsterdam 2016. Their first ever conference in the European mainland, The Dieline's exciting content will be exploring packaging and branding topics, with panels and discussions from both leading and emerging brands, as well as packaging suppliers and design agencies.
Top brands and design leaders will gather to discuss the challenges and opportunities that arise when designing for a major brand. As the leading platform for package design and inspiration, The Dieline couldn't think of a better place than a partnership with Packaging Innovations to inspire the Dutch packaging community. Combining their signature high-level content, endless inspiration and a curation of previous The Dieline Awards' winners, conference attendees will visit the future of packaging and branding design.
The event is specifically for packaging designers and marketing/brand managers. And remember; this is a free-to-attend conference that is exclusive to attendees of Packaging Innovations Amsterdam 2016. But space is limited, so don't delay!

Robert Kuiper, BrandNew
Owner of Brandnew (group) since 2004, educated as Marketeer, I worked in various marketing jobs before making a switch to the design industry in 1998. Talking about design is something I cannot help. Once seen, the ability of design to solve any obstacle ahead is contagious and never ending as, unfortunately, new obstacles keep arising?. My strength is to envision; design helps me in giving Brands their true strength (back). Give me challenge and I will go ‘on’, but if afraid of flying don’t travel with me!
