Why 2 locations?

The initial target of the Pack Design Day was to offer the seminar in manufacturing premises that allow attendees to cover within one day

  1. the theory of medical device packaging materials compliance and manufacturing process
  2. together with onsite visits & practical discussions which can take place in test labs, R&D workshops, on converting tools and nearby base web manufacturing lines.

Several attendees have mentioned the fact that this seminar would be of interest for more people of company, but without the possibility for them to make the trip to France.
As a result, Sterimed has developed an adapted format, with videos & live demos of medical web making principles, to be able to bring the same introduction to medical packaging standards ,compliance and conditions of manufacturing to other locations.
The offsite Pack Design Days have already been organized in Malaysia and China over H1 2015, with more to come in the coming months, in Asia & Latin America.


Multiple times a year, including one event the day after Medica Dusseldorf Fair in Germany
