Packaging Strategies Studies

Since 1983, Packaging Strategies has delivered to the world's packaging leaders, the kind of inside, informed news and analysis that cannot be found anywhere else in the world of packaging. We cover the tough issues, the ones other publications and conferences are afraid to touch. But, without this hard-to-get knowledge, you're missing the whole story — you're not operating with all the facts.

Our valued Packaging Strategies customers are the most influential people in packaging and they depend on us for something that goes beyond information... they expect us to tell them what it all means. We move our customers to the next level in packaging information with three service centers: newsletters, conferences and multi-client studies. 

The multi-client studies listed below provide you with the research and – more importantly – expert analysis of that research you need to make you competitive in today’s marketplace.  The publishers of these studies are all well-respected research firms and authors, with 20+ years experience in the industry.  For some, including Packaging Strategies, it’s 30+ years experience.   Order your study(ies) today for immediate research results that puts you ahead of your competitors.
