Visitor stats

The event provides a great cross-section of packaging types provided by suppliers from across the globe. Some of the biggest attractions for me were the workshops on environmentally friendly packaging - listening to some of the industry leaders talk about their focus on sustainability was very enlightening.

Craig Dickinson, Senior Packaging Technologist, Quorn Foods

We are currently looking for suppliers in different fields to which we currently operate, so we came to the event because it provides a great opportunity to meet these people, and to see what’s new in the market. There was such a good spread of exhibitors for us to network with, it really was the perfect platform for us to do business.
