Positive start for Packaging Innovations London

Packaging Innovations London, which returns to the Business Design Centre this autumn, is already reported to be off to a positive start. Over 130 exhibitors have already signed up for the show, which takes place on 1 2 October, an 41% increase on this time last year.

Among the exhibitors will be Cole Fabrics Pic, Esko-Graphics BVBA, HH Deluxe Packaging, Macfarlane Packaging and N Smith Co Limited.

Matt Benyon, Managing Director at easyFairs UK and Ireland, organisers of the show, said: “As we enter our fourth year, Packaging Innovations London has become the show designers and marketers head to for inspiration. The emphasis is firmly on creativity, branding and marketing – showcasing the latest trends and developments in design and high-end packaging. It is this appeal which draws in the major names such as Estée Lauder, Manchester United Ltd, Sainsbury’s, Stella McCartney, Bacardi Global Brands Ltdand Waitrose, who all attended the show last year.”

The 2013 show will include four key areas:

  • Brand Design Village – A hub of the best agencies in the business, who look after the full cycle of a product from concept to creation
  • Luxury Packaging – A dedicated area covering everything from stylish bottles, ribbons and braids, to designer and promotional packaging
  • Packaging Innovations – Featuring all the latest packaging designs, solutions, trends and developments
  • Contract Pack – The place to meet professional outsourcing partners

Paul Bates, Esko’s UK and Eire Business Manager and who will be exhibiting at the show, commented: “We have been at every Packaging Innovations event since the first concept show and each time it is stronger. More importantly, it attracts high level decision makers and enables us to interact with a different audience. We are meeting the customers’ customer, which is worth its weight in gold.”

For those keen to keep up with latest issues and trends, there will be an array of free-to-attend learnShops™ seminars, spanning across every aspect of packaging and delivered by world-class industry experts.

Sarah Voelker, Packaging Designer for Harrods and who attended the show last year, said: “My visit to Packaging Innovations London was really useful and inspiring. The learnShops seminars provided excellent information and ideas allowing a great opportunity to not only meet our current suppliers face to face, but also find new ideas and meet new contacts. I look forward to visiting again this year!”

There will once again be the Lions’ Lair, a show feature where companies pitch their latest innovations to a panel of packaging experts, plus The BIG Packaging Debate where panelists debate a controversial hot topic within the industry.
