Our extensive seminar programme

Here are the confirmed industry-focused forums taking place on the Main Stage across the two days of the show, with the Packaging News Stage running concurrently bringing together a range of industry speakers.

The BIG Plastics Debate

Following its enormously popular debut outing last year, The BIG  Plastics Debate will be returning to the show again. The debate will cover the key talking point of the year; dissecting the government consultations, creating packaging for a zero-carbon future, debating compostable packaging and ensuring your packaging doesn't end its life in landfill or ocean.

The Food Forum

When discussing food packaging you cannot avoid mentioning plastics, this is why Ella's Kitchen and  BOL foods will be sharing their journeys towards environmentally-friendly packaging. As ever, catching the eye of your consumer is a constant challenge so make sure to hear from leading design agency Butterfly Cannon.

The Drinks Forum

Design and sustainability are the key talking points for the Drinks Forum hosted by thedrinksreport.com. Coca-Cola will be discussing its sustainability and plastics strategy while Hubbub will be sharing an update on its coffee cup scheme with Starbucks. BrewDog will be speaking alongside LOVE agency about their unique brand/agency partnership model for the craft brewery's new spirits line.

The Beauty Forum

For the beauty industry, it is increasingly becoming clear that a sustainability message it not just a nice to have CSR message but mission critical for businesses to embed into their core strategy. For this reason the Beauty Forum will bring together brands to share advice on how to overcome the challenge of providing sustainable but beautiful packaging with a particular focus on refillable solutions.

The E-Commerce Forum

The growth in online shopping is having a significant effect on retail packaging, and as the volume of direct to consumer sales increases, so the consumer experience is changing from in-store to delivery. The result is both an increase in the importance of packaging and also the need for appropriate protective packaging for transport.
