The IoPP student chapter at Rochester Institute of Technology is hosting the 27th annual Student Packaging Jamboree on our beautiful campus from March 29-31, 2012.  Packaging students from all over the country are gathering at RIT to celebrate their enthusiasm about the packaging industry.  This extraordinary event marks a long-standing tradition in packaging education, and supports student’s goals to advance their knowledge into the packaging community. 

The theme for the 2012 Student Packaging Jamboree is “The Consumer Connection: How Packaging Communicates”.  As media outlets are expanding, consumers can stay connected to products and packaging through a wide array of digital technologies.  RIT provides the perfect market to balance packaging education and the technologies in order to keep consumers constantly connected in a digital world.  This year’s Student Packaging Jamboree will embrace speakers, tours, and a unique design challenge to showcase the role of packaging and the consumer connection.

The IoPP student chapter at RIT aims to make the 2012 Student Packaging Jamboree a highly educational, exciting, and memorable event for the approximately 250 anticipated attendees from all over the country.  We are currently looking for sponsors to help us realize this goal.  Sponsorship toward the Student Packaging Jamboree will provide a great opportunity for you or your company to help students working toward a career in the packaging industry.  The levels of sponsorship offered are explained on below.  Corporate sponsorships at the Bronze, Silver, or Gold level will have their company logo recognized, as appropriate, on t-shirts and literature regarding the Jamboree as acknowledgements for your company’s support.

If you are interested in becoming a sponsor or have any questions, do not hesitate to contact our sponsorship coordinator Andrea Steen at als3245@rit.edu.
