We came to see alternatives to plastics, and the Plastic-Free Aisle was a big draw for us. It has been so interesting to discover what solutions are out there.

Rowena Taylor, Product Technologist, John Lewis

We came for innovation and the show certainly delivered, it has been so interesting. We were particularly impressed by the Carlsberg talk about its sustainability strategy.

This our first time at the show and it has been brilliant. We have seen everything we were hoping to see and will definitely be coming again.

Lauren Sherrington, Packaging Technologist, The Hut Group

The show has been great. We came primarily to discover current perceptions about bio-plastics and have found the Plastic Free Aisle particularly interesting. There has been lots of interesting debate taking place throughout the show and a wide range of well-turned out, innovative exhibitors.

Chris McNeill, Co-Founder, Rebrands Ltd

It’s great to see such a big emphasis being placed on recyclability at this year’s show. We have chatted to lots of great suppliers offering bio-degradable and recyclable solutions which was exactly what we came hoping to find.

I am really pleased to see that there is such a large range of manufacturers from all over the world at the show. It has a very international feel.

This is the first packaging show that I have ever been to and it has not disappointed. I have been thrilled with the breadth of content and suppliers on show. We have a wide range of products that we were hoping to focus on today, and the show has offered us something for each of them. Fantastic day so far!

I have been really impressed with the sustainability focus at the show this year. Packaging Innovations London is a great way to discover the latest trends in the market and it’s fascinating to hear about the latest developments and innovations in packaging. The show also provides a great opportunity to network and put faces to names. I will definitely be returning next year.
