The future of branded, inspirational and luxury packaging on display in London

Packaging Innovations and Luxury Packaging London returns to Olympia, London, September 13-14, 2017. As the leading event of its kind, the exclusive two-day show will bring together senior decision makers and buyers looking to revitalise their packaging, increase brand awareness, and boost sales.

James Drake-Brockman, divisional director of Easyfairs’ Packaging Portfolio, comments: “We are delighted to be returning to London’s Olympia to host Packaging Innovations and Luxury Packaging London 2017. I can’t wait to see some of the big changes we have in store come to fruition. We have been working closely with our Ambassadors Group and the industry to create new and exciting content that our visitors want to see. Plus, we will be welcoming more first time exhibitors than ever before, adding to the level of innovation already on show.

“We continue to attract the best and brightest from within the sector, reaffirming our position as the number one place to discover the latest industry trends and solutions that are flooding this dynamic market. We are all set for the biggest edition to date, so stay tuned for more.”

New for 2017, the show will have a brand-new seminar format for its keynote theatre programme. This will allow more focus on core vertical markets, including beauty, drinks, luxury and food. These sessions will run alongside two other theatres, which will host a full programme of free-to-attend seminars, spanning the entire packaging spectrum.

Launching at this year’s show will be a brand new, free-to-attend Packaging Design Summit. This will be run in association with the Pentawards, one of the most prestigious worldwide competitions exclusively devoted to packaging design in all its forms.

Visitors will also be presented with a series of interactive features allowing them to get expert advice on some of the biggest challenges facing the packaging industry. This will include favourites such as the Innovation Showcase, Innovation Wall and the Packaging Consultancy Clinic.

In addition to this, over 150 top suppliers are already signed up for this year’s show. Some of the names on board include Aegg, DS Smith, Havi Global Solutions, James Cropper, Neenah Paper, Schur Star, Kurz, M&H Plastics, Dapi, plus many. They will be unveiling their latest innovations in branded and inspirational packaging.

Returning exhibitor Paul Farmer, Managing Director at Wade Ceramics, comments: “The 2016 show was better than we ever could have expected. There was such a high calibre of visitor to our stand, which was incredibly exciting. It also provided us with an exciting opportunity to network with other exhibitors to achieve mutually beneficial outcomes. It’s a great show!”
