“We had a very busy two days right up to closing time on Thursday.  Some very high calibre visitors who gave us some great quality enquiries to follow up.”

Jon Bullimore, Sales Director, Staeger Clear Packaging Limited

 

“The show was a tremendous success for New Vision Packaging; not only did the number of visitors to our stand increase over previous years, but the quality of the visitors was exceptional too. I fully expect to covert some of these initial contacts into orders very, very quickly. Our innovative retail packaging seemed to be quite a draw for visitors to the show, and we have already booked our position for London 2016.”

Stephen Shortland, Managing Director, New Vision Packaging Limited

 

“We have had another successful Luxury Packaging show. In addition to promoting the latest range of luxury and presentational packaging, we also had the latest Geami WrapPak expander giving demonstrations of this unique protective packaging material. This attracted the attention of many visitors and we generated a lot of new leads as a result. It was also good to see existing customers and discuss our latest developments with them.”

Jason Inwood, Managing Director, Woodway UK

 

“A great show; as usual we took several good orders directly from the stand.”

Robert Knox, Owner, KTEC Group

 

“We were proud to celebrate a landmark 170 year anniversary with business partners and friends at Luxury Packaging 2015 and share with them our next wave of high-quality papers. We had an overwhelmingly positive response, from both visitors and other exhibitors, and noticed a definite increase in footfall to our stand at this year’s event. ”

Chris Brown, Commercial Director, James Cropper

 

“The show was an exciting opportunity for us to demonstrate our shopper research services for our prospect customers in the UK. We met so many interesting people and made valuable contacts!”

Johanna Hänninen, Project Manager, Best Before

 

“What a fabulous two days of meeting and greeting old and new acquaintances. Footfall was tremendous with a constant flow of new faces and enquiries to our stand of innovations. The team felt a real ‘buzz’ of interest around our latest project to showcase the advantages of HP’s Mosaic software which enables one-of-a-kind products, in turn creating a memorable customer experience, creating the ‘wow’ factor for customers to each get their own unique product.”

David Richards, Technical & Commercial Manager, Amberley Labels

 

“A big thanks to the organisers of the Luxury Packaging show in London last week. We had a very successful show with a great reaction to our packs and stand. We have already received orders from new clients we met there so it doesn’t get much better than that!”

Linda Lucas, Managing Director, LUCAS Promotions

 

“Packaging Innovations was and always is a huge success. This year was a little extra special, as Curtis was one of the winners of Innovation Showcase; I gave a talk on our limited edition ‘Finishing Touches… The 2015 Collection’. This generated a huge interest to the stand and gave us the opportunity to showcase more of our innovative products.”

Steve Mallett, Sales Director, Curtis Packaging

 

“Generally speaking the exhibition is more pleasant with a unique level for all the exhibitors, good lightings, good identification from exhibitors and booths. Visitors looked for new ideas and innovations! The most required products are printed ribbons, metal pieces, gifts and textile pouch. More and more customers are interested by decoration easy and quick to place: our stickers seem to be a good solution for them.”

Marie-Cécile Luquet, Seram

 

“We are very pleased with the response we received at the recent Packaging Innovations show in London. We presented Embossed, our new swatch which showcases 10 embossing effects which are ideally suited to personalising paper, board and luxury packaging. The visitors showed great interest in the textures and effects that can be achieved and we are delighted, as in the past, to have joined this exclusive event. We are also proud of our nomination and shortlisted entry at the Luxury Packaging Awards for the VOYA packaging which is made from our ecological paper which contains seaweed.”

Chiara Cazzagon, Secretarial Director, FAVINI S.r.l

 

“A great show for us. We saw the brand owners that we needed to see to raise awareness of the assurances a sustainable forest management label such as PEFC’s can provide.”

Alun Watkins, Executive Director, PEFC UK

 

“The show was a great opportunity for us to showcase some of the exciting new projects to existing and new clients.  In particular, our exclusive preview of the high-tech Terrarium jewellery box for Henry Holland for LFW15 and our guest silhouettes that cut visitors silhouettes in card in less than 60 seconds went viral on social media.”

Tom Bosanquet, Director, Wrapology International
