A Free, Virtual Mini-Conference

With all the conference cancellations this year, your schedule (plus learning and networking opportunities) was a little lighter. Med PackED is going to change that by offering the education, networking, coffee, and entertainment of an in-person trade show - without the travel, the lengthy time commitment, or risk of being coughed on. Commit a few of your mid-day hours - call it an extended coffee break - on Wednesday, December 9th to medical packaging insights. Learn, ideate, and network without ever leaving your office chair (unless you want to, of course).

Why Attend?

We get it - three hours away from work (plus the virtual learning supervising or other multi-tasking duties keeping you swamped) these days is no small ask. So here's what the event will offer you, in exchange for your precious time:

  • Industry Experts Sharing Relevant Medical Packaging Insights - in short snippets
  • Free Cup of Coffee - your choice of brand, flavor, and temperature; our treat
  • 10+ Chances to Win Gift Cards - treat yourself or family and friends to sweets, snacks, or dinner
  • Recording & Slides for all Sessions - refer back or re-watch at your convenience

You can pop in and out, or register and tune in later - whatever works for you, works for us. We're providing valuable information and motivation via caffeine and fun - all in the name of medical packaging. Join us!
