Speaking about the seminar programme, Grant Collier, Head of Marketing for the PPMA Group, said: “Ian and Kevin are widely known throughout the industry for their expertise and knowledge. I have no doubt their presentations will provide valuable insight regarding the direction the packaging industry will take during the next few years.”
