Packaging Innovations, Empack and Label&Print returns to Birmingham’s NEC on 28 February-1 March 2018, and is set to be the most innovative show to date. With over 290 exhibitors already signed up, the UK’s largest annual event for the entire packaging supply chain will feature the latest industry innovations and technologies, alongside a major free-to-attend seminar programme, all with a big focus on the food and drink sector.

James Drake-Brockman, Divisional Director of Easyfairs’ Packaging Portfolio, comments: “We work hard to create a diverse show that offers unrivalled opportunities for brands and decision makers to come together with leading international suppliers and do business. It’s great to be back for our thirteenth edition, and this year we have plenty for the food and beverage market to get excited about.”

Innovation on the Show Floor

Top suppliers, such as HP, RPC, AEGG Creative, James Cropper, Alexir Packaging, Apllic’etains, Leonhard Kurz UK and Epson have all been quick to book stands. The majority of leading suppliers on show will be using the two-day event to launch new products and services to the wider UK packaging market.

For example, glass packaging company, Croxons, will bring its wide range of premium spirit bottles and luxury closures to the show. The range sits alongside its comprehensive selection of glass packaging solutions which cater for all sections of the food and beverage industry.

Producer of aluminium cans and bottles, Envases Group, will showcase its innovative aluminium aerosol cans, screw neck bottles and shaped and debossed cans.

Kotkamillis will showcase its AEGLE™ range of Folding Boxboards for folding carton packaging and the ISLA™ range of Food Service Boards for disposable cups and plates. The company also plans to launch a range of water-based, dispersion coated barrier products that are easily recyclable and re-pulpable.

Automated Packaging Systems will demonstrate its wide range of bagging machines, from simple desk-top units through to fully customisable systems. It will also showcase its new alternative packaging solution – a horizontal, food compatible bagging machine that minimises product damage and increases productivity.

Nth Degree will be showcasing the new TruPack range, which is a complete solution for creating colour accurate samples, mock-ups and prototypes. This allows customers to quickly and easily produce any form of packaging including cans, pouches, and cartons with spot accurate colour.

James Drake-Brockman, Divisional Director of Easyfairs’ Packaging Portfolio, comments: “Our research shows that one of the key reasons visitors attend the show year-on-year is to discover all the latest innovations within the marketplace, so it is fantastic to see so many of our suppliers using Packaging Innovations 2018 as the launchpad for their new products and solutions.”

Unbeatable Content

Headed up by the Keynote Stage, Packaging Innovations’ conference programme will run across five unique seminar stages and feature over 20 hours of CPD-accredited content.  The two-day educational agenda will focus on key sectors, with dedicated forums for retail, beauty, pharmaceutical and ecommerce, and of course, food and drink.

The food and drinks market will take centre stage as part of the Keynote progamme, which will see experts from The Wild Beer Co., Salcombe Gin, R&D Distillers and Anno Distillers taking part in a panel discussing the power of imaginative packaging in the drinks industry. The Keynote Stage will also host a series of talks focussed specifically on packaging for the food industry.

Running alongside the Keynote Stage will be the Innovation Stage, The Label&Print Stage, The Ecopack Stage and The Packaging News Stage.

Plus, the show will also feature The Pentawards Exhibit, which was successfully launched at Packaging Innovations London. This will give attendees a global perspective of the best and most creative packaging designs from the last year.
