Packaging Innovations and Empack postponed to February 2022.

London, 25 March 2021: Packaging Innovations and Empack, the leading UK packaging event, has been postponed from June 2021 to 16 & 17 February 2022 in a decision made in consultation with the community. The live exhibition and seminars, which regularly attracts key visitors and exhibitors from across the industry’s biggest, best, and most innovative players, will be held at the NEC Birmingham.

As well as networking opportunities and a world-leading exhibition, the packaging community will benefit from the insights of some of the industry’s leading experts on a wide range of trends and issues impacting the industry, from sustainability to the e-commerce revolution and beyond.

To enable that content fix in the meantime, however, Packaging Innovations and Empack have launched a new digital sector-specific publication, ‘Packaging In Focus’, which brings together voices from the different corners of the packaging market. Experts and guest contributors shine a light on the upcoming trends, share their experiences on the latest challenges and inspirational design ideas with readers.

Renan Joel, Divisional Director for Easyfairs UK & Global’s packaging events, says: “We have been working closely with our exhibitors and key stakeholders to secure the best possible option to run the event and provide the industry with an opportunity to meet and do business this summer, and as such we have worked tirelessly to put in place numerous safety measures to ensure we can deliver a safe event to the highest possible standards. However, with the Government’s most recent announcement that large-scale indoor events will not be permitted until 21 June at the earliest, it has become impossible to run the June 2021 edition.

We understand how important it still is for us as humans to connect and continue to foster key relationships face to face. We are confident that, in 2022, we will be able to bring the community back together in a more powerful way than ever! In the lead up to the show, Packaging Innovations and Empack will build a community around not only the live event but also a year-long experience of relevant and insightful content and collaboration by the industry and for the industry!”

This decision has been made in close consultation with the industry and due to the ongoing unforeseeable, unavoidable and unprecedented global scope of the Coronavirus pandemic. This has led to the Government implementing ongoing measures to maintain social distancing until at least 21 June 2021, further continuing the Force Majeure situation.
