AICC, The Independent Packaging Association, Board Converting News (BCN), and Corrugated Today invite AICC Associate Members to submit their innovative machinery for the 2021 Innovator of the Year Competition (IOY). Held in conjunction with the AICC/ TAPPI 2021 SuperCorrExpo, August 8-12, at the Orange County Convention Center, Orlando, FL, the competition this year will be exceptional.
For more than two decades, AICC members have shared their best ideas. In that time, Innovator of the Year has evolved into a highly competitive showcase for solutions AICC Members have developed.
Industry experts on the AICC Plant Innovations Committee review the entries and select the finalists. The finalists are then featured at SuperCorrExpo and attendees vote for their favorite innovation.
The machinery category, open to AICC Associate (supplier) members in good standing, focuses on innovations of equipment, products, or services directly related to the mechanical converting process. Innovations should benefit the paperboard packaging industry through enhanced efficiency, quality, productivity, and/or safety of converting plants.
The “mechanical converting process” covers all operations that involve direct contact with corrugated, folding carton, or rigid box substrates (i.e., printing, cutting, creasing, scoring, stitching, gluing, material handling, etc.).
Entries must be received by Friday, June 4. This is a video based competition.
