I'm very happy to welcome our members and group suppliers to our first virtual Supplier Summit. For us at PackSynergy, collaboration with group suppliers is a key success factor. For example, requirements for sustainable product solutions will play a crucial role in the future.
How can buyers help businesses operate more sustainably in tomorrow’s world and how can sustainability be successfully integrated into an overall supplier strategy?
By engaging in active knowledge transfer, the Summit will seek to provide answers to these exciting questions. At the same time, it will serve as a platform for discussion as well as fruitful interaction with one another.

I wish every success to all involved.

The motto for the second day will be “Speed Dating”. Every group supplier will have a chance to book a 20-minute “date” with selected representatives of our partner companies. These dates are a great opportunity to talk about details – after all, everyone knows that deals are always done between people. As a supplier, we invite you to take advantage and book a date with the partner of your choice.

The event is for Packsynergy AG members and group suppliers only.
