We come to the show every year and have found this year really interesting. There were a number of suppliers we were hoping to see and they are all here.

Louisa Lewis, Purchasing Manager, The Silver Spoon Company

This event is our best source of new business here in the UK

Steve Benn, Director, Aldernay Race

I was drawn to the show by the exhibitors and the heavy focus on the plastic debate. It’s been great and I have seen everyone that I wanted to see.

Ben Richardson-Hughes, New Product Development, Holland & Barrett

This year’s show has surpassed all of our expectations, particularly given the weather conditions. We have had a great response from visitors and some good enquiries, so we are really pleased. We have been coming to the show for 10 years and have already rebooked for next year.

Phil Donaldson, Manager Director, Advanced Labelling Systems

The show has been really informative, and we have picked up some great samples. We came to the show mainly to get some more information on colour management and we have found a supplier who ticks all the boxes for us. We have found all of the exhibitors and speakers really engaging, particularly the strong focus on sustainability which is so topical at the moment.

Paula Dresher, Print & Artwork Co-ordinator, Muller Dairy

The show has been insightful and informative. It’s been great to network with so many new and old contacts and put the faces to names. We will definitely be coming to Packaging Innovations again.

Abi Sanusi, Procurement, Jordans, Dorset and Ryvita

We have been coming to the event for 10 years and the show is, as always, well organised and efficient, with plenty of great leads generated.

Nasreen Akhter, Marketing & Product Support Specialist, Automated Packaging Systems

I have been coming to this show for many years and it is brilliant. For this year in particular there has been lots of interesting content on offer and I have seen everyone I needed to see.
