Five new initiatives will be launched at the Packaging Innovations and Luxury Packaging London 2015, taking place at Olympia London, for the first time, on 16 & 17 September 2015. The new features will run alongside established show favourites, surrounded by 170 exhibitors showcasing the latest branded and inspirational packaging in the UK and from around the globe.

This year’s show will see the launch of The Brand Innovation Programme, where nine leading creative agencies across the two days, including Webb deVlam London and Icicle Group, will discuss how to develop brands with high quality packaging design. Kicking off day one will be Guy Douglass, Managing Director, at Brand On Shelf, talking about the role packaging design plays in maximising brand appeal, and how it drives sales in store and builds brand loyalty.

The Retail Institute will chair the brand new Great Innovation Debate, which will explore the term ‘innovation’ in relation to packaging. The interactive show feature will question what is innovation, how do we define innovation, what is seen as innovation and where does innovation come from. The debate will take place on the Keynote Theatre at 15:30, on day one of the show.

The timed competition will see three design agencies go head to head, in a bid to design a rugby carton in homage to the Rugby World Cup.

The competition will demonstrate how quickly a concept can turn into a reality!

Exhibitors were asked to send in their entries and show organisers, Easyfairs, have whittled them down to an exclusive group of winners. Visitors will get a chance to see these thought-provoking and industry leading designs at The Brand Innovation Theatre, where the winners will present each idea and concept between 13:30 – 14:30 on day one of the show.
