Packaging challenges solved through engaging seminars

We gathered together a broad range of the UK’s leading packaging and brand experts to help address the key issues that you as a packaging buyer face today. From the plastics issue and sustainability to designing eye-catching packaging that stands out, the key topics were covered in the industry forums, covering Beauty & Cosmetics, Drinks, Retail & E-commerce and Technology, complemented by the return of the Big Plastics Debate!

Highlights from 2019

2019 was a lively, forward-looking agenda which saw two teams debate how fundamental plastic is to the future of packaging, the brands leading the way in innovation showcasing their work and the key industry experts unpicking the challenges of sustainable packaging. As well as the movers and shakers of key industry sectors sharing insights and experiences of best-practice packaging developments.

With more speakers than ever before from all areas of the packaging field representing the total packaging supply chain, 2019 was a great year!
