The star speaker at the Carton Conference Gala Dinner in October organised by BPIF Cartons at London’s Business Design Centre, will be the well-known TV and radio personality, Gyles Brandreth.

Gyles, an accomplished writer, journalist and broadcaster, makes regular TV contributions to ‘The One Show’ and is often an entertaining member of Radio 4’s ‘Just a Minute’.Neal Whipp, BPIF Cartons – General Manager, said, “We are delighted to announce that Gyles has agreed to speak at our Gala Dinner. Of course, I had to provide reassurance that we would not challenge any repetition, hesitation or deviation so he would speak for more than one minute. Seriously though, we expect Gyles will provide a light-hearted touch to the conference and his wealth of experience is sure to engage the audience. Over the coming weeks we will announce some of the major brand owners who have already pledged to attend this event.”

Gyles, a former Member of Parliament for the City of Chester, is one of Britain’s busiest after-dinner speakers and award ceremony hosts. He has been nominated and has won several awards as a public speaker, novelist, children’s writer, broadcaster, political diarist, journalist, theatre producer and businessman.

The Carton Conference will enjoy a strong link with the easyFairs Packaging Innovations which immediately follow the conference. The event is expected to provide an unmatched networking opportunity and will be relevant to all parts of the carton industry’s supply chain – from suppliers to packaging specifiers. Many of the UK’s leading brand owners are expected to attend and a special website is now open for registrations.
