Subject:  SMACK THAT PACK CHALLENGE (Design Cigarette and Other Tobacco Pack)

Dear Member,

Greetings from Cancer Patients Aid Association (CPAA)!

Every year 31st May is observed as World No Tobacco Day (WNTD). This year the theme for WNTD is “Get ready for plain packaging” Plain packaging of tobacco products is an important demand reduction measure. It reduces the attractiveness of tobacco products, restricts use of tobacco packaging as a form of advertising, limits misleading packaging and labeling and increases the effectiveness of health warnings. CPAA in co-operation with the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoH&FW) and World Health Organization (WHO) is organizing SMACK THAT PACK CHALLENGE  competition, which will be judged by a panel of celebrities. An exhibition of the best selected, will be held at Trident, BKC- Bandra (Mumbai).

Asking the right questions to the right people is the only way to drive innovation and stay inspired. However, more often than not it becomes the most difficult feat to achieve. Why? Because most of us do not have direct access to key industry leaders and experts who are ready to chat with us and discuss the growth prospects and developments in our fields of interest. Agree?
