The IoPP conference will take place on Wednesday, June 19, 2013, at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City, during the HBA Global Expo & Conference.  As the leading product development event for the cosmetics, fragrance, personal care and skin industry, the international show draws more than 15,000 industry professionals, and will run June 18-20, 2013.

IoPP plans five, 75-minute presentations that will be developed through its Packaging Learning Center. The sessions will explore branding, materials and other trends involving packaging. The presentation topics will be developed for health and beauty industry audiences, but will also include information that is valuable in general in elevating packaging's role as part of business strategies at consumer product companies.

"This mutually beneficial partnership with UBM Live is a significant development for IoPP," says Patrick Farrey, IoPP Executive Director. "These presentations will enable our packaging experts to get suitable, on-trend information about packaging in front of health and beauty industry professionals. The health and beauty industry has a strong representation within IoPP's membership, but some of them might not attend more general packaging trade shows. Our participation also will help strengthen IoPP's brand in front of HBA Global Expo & Conference attendees who may not be familiar with IoPP.

"In addition, with our recent opening of an office in London, IoPP will be able to help HBA Global expand targeted marketing efforts internationally for the event."

Adds Jim George, IoPP's Director of Education: "Our agreement gives IoPP another new opportunity to serve its educational mission within the packaging community. We are pleased to have this opportunity at HBA Global Expo & Conference, which has been a vital event for the health and beauty community for two decades."

"The latest in packaging innovations and trends is one of the top areas of interest for the HBA Global audience. We are thrilled to partner with IoPP and offer our attendees these sessions that will enhance their brand and professional success," says Jill Birkett, Brand Director, Beauty & Wellness, UBM Live.

Speakers and topics for the IoPP sessions will be announced soon. Watch for details, and registration information, at www.iopp.org and www.hbaexpo.com.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
An IoT product’s log files speak volumes about what’s happening with your products in the field, pinpointing current and potential issues, and enabling you to predict failures and save millions of dollars in inventory.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

Extracting business value from Internet of Things (IoT) data doesn’t happen overnight. There are several requirements that must be satisfied, including IoT device enablement, data analysis, real-time detection of complex events and automated orchestration of actions.
