Interactive features

Following a rigorous judging process, a shortlist of 10 of the best innovations from the online exhibitor Innovation Gallery were on display at the show. Visitors stopped by to discover how our suppliers came up these innovative solutions and how they could apply it to their own packaging. Visitors were able to vote for their favourite with their badge at the show and the winner was announced on day 2 at the Main Stage. Well done to the winners Beresford’s Ribbons and Bows for its Bespoke Print Services!

“It has been so good. I came for the seminar programme and it has incredibly topical. The Big Plastics Debate is up next, and the crowd is already gathering. I can’t wait.”
Josh Matthews, Marketing, Taxi Studio
