Education Hub

The Education Hub, run by specialist publishing company Earth Island is designed to showcase the opportunities the packaging industry has to offer to young professionals. The zone has also been designed to encourage packaging companies to offer the next generation of young talent work placement and apprenticeship opportunities. 

Innovation Showcase

Innovation lies at the heart of our show and so this popular feature is returning to shine a light on the fantastic work our suppliers have done over the last year.

The Innovation Showcase will see 12 finalists and their groundbreaking solutions compete for the title of ‘Most Innovative Pack’. Make sure you stop by to experience these products in person and vote for your favourite.

The winner from last year was FFP Packaging Ltd with their ‘Reseal & Recycle’ pack. The pack was developed to offer an immediate solution that utilises current recycling streams. Completely recyclable, the pack is comprised of a tray, lidding film and resealable label.

Ecopack Challenge

In association with Marks & Spencer, this Dragon’s Den style competition invites sustainable packaging creators the chance to pitch their idea to a panel of experienced judges!

The 2019 winners Flexi-Hex are the brains behind a 100% biodegradable and recyclable packaging alternative removing the need for traditional single-use plastic such as bubble wrap and tape. 

We can’t wait to see who will take the eco crown in 2020!
