A window into the future of packaging

It's a time of change in the packaging industry. With an increasing demand for packaging to reflect the values of the brand, address the concerns of the consumer, and utilise the latest innovations to create added value, having up-to-date, relevant insight on the trends, opportunities and challenges prevailing in the industry can often be the difference between success and failure.

Packaging Innovations 2018 will offer a free-to-attend, CPD-accredited programme delivered by leading brands and packaging experts. Spread across 5 stages, the programme will have a strong sector-focus, and explore a range of big current issues, from smart packaging and digital printing, to sustainability and the plastics debate.
