Last year, Filamatic had the great opportunity to participate in PMMI’s Amazing Packaging Race for the first time. The Amazing Packaging Race supports engineering students who participate in a race where they must find solutions to various engineering challenges provided by participating exhibiting companies throughout of the entire Pack Expo tradeshow. This year, Filamatic is once again returning to the conference with an entirely new and exciting challenge for these young minds.
There are many traditional opportunities for exhibitor advertising and sponsorships, but Dorjee Tenpa, Filamatic’s Marketing Manager shared why they are so involved with this particular effort for the second consecutive year, “…to help inspire the future generation of engineering students through the endless innovation and opportunity that the packaging industry has to offer. It is a joy to watch these young minds become engaged and exercise their creativity while using teamwork to solve difficult problems”.
Filamatic will not be giving any hints as to what students can expect of their challenge, but students can be confident that they will be confronted with a creative and fun challenge that will require students to as a team in order to solve it. As well as participating in the Amazing Race, Filamatic will be displaying four unique machines during the show, one of which will be unveiled for the first time! Be sure to come by Filamatic’s booth C- #4202 to see our “Machines-in-Motion!”
