This year’s Designers’ Lab is co-sponsored by Arden Software North America, ESKO, Gerber Technologies and HP. Designers will have the opportunity to learn new techniques in both structural and graphic design from experts in the field, and share their knowledge with peers at the 2017 Designers’ Lab. Designers will also get a chance to show-off their skill, talent and receive recognition as they participate in the “real-world” design-to-problem challenge. Open to corrugated, folding carton and rigid box graphic and structural designers.

Participating designers are encouraged to attend the following AICC Annual Meeting events as well: Continental Breakfasts, Workshops and General Session II (Design Challenge winners will be announced during the Wednesday General Session which begins at 10:10 am). Awards will be shipped to winners following the meeting.
