With 63% of exhibitors launching new products and services at the show, PACKAGING INNOVATIONS 2013 is set to play host to the most important new developments in packaging design, materials and technology, with many making their global or UK debut.

Exhibition Launches

Here’s a glimpse of some of the exhibitor launches:

AB Packaging Group (stand E26) is launching its much anticipated paper bag for life. Mike Gibson, UK Sales Manager at AB Packaging Group, remarks: “We are delighted to work in partnership with ECOPACK to launch our new innovative 100% biodegradable carrier bag. We have put two years R&D into this product and we know the high street and supermarkets will be very excited when we launch in February.”

Nicholl Food Packaging (stand E22) is launching a number of new lines into its portfolio, which includes smoothwall and wrinklewall foil trays, compostable and ovenable board variants and lidding films.

Enercon Industries (stand B3) is exhibiting the industry’s first multi-language and multi-functional touch screen induction sealer. Designed for use in a wide range of packaging applications, from food and beverage, to pharmaceutical, agrochemical and household, the Super Seal™ Touch can be used as a stand-alone line-side unit or be fully integrated into a continuous filling and capping line.

Blockfoil (stand B45) will be showcasing its latest work in hot foiling and embossing. Peter Starling, Director at Blockfoil, says: “The show is a fantastic opportunity for us to showcase how blockfoiling can make a carton stand out from the crowd. It is a great event for meeting up with brand managers and designers as well as spending time with our customers. We are really looking forward to exhibiting next February.”

Show Features

This year’s show will see the launch of easyFairs’ packaging conference, with keynotes from Unilever, Procter & Gamble, SABMiller, Iconoculture and Gu. The high-level yet highly practical two-day conference running throughout PACKAGING INNOVATIONS, will feature experts from Kingfisher, Nestlé, Alliance Boots, Mintel, Space NK, the NHS, Waitrose, Wm Morrison Supermarkets, British American Tobacco, Heineken International and DHL. These major names will draw on their own experiences and insights as they address the top packaging concerns for senior strategists and decision makers working in the UK today.

Also new for this year is the inaugural BIG Print Debate with top print decision makers from Unilever and Waitrose taking part. Plus a live edition of PACKCHAT the hugely popular twitter forum, which will take place at 1pm on Wednesday 27 February in the Social Media Lounge. Here show attendees will debate with the ‘twittersphere’ regarding a critical packaging issue.

The brand new features will run alongside show favourites. These include 50 content-rich learnShop seminars, including major brands and leading speakers from Sunny Delight, Landa, Warburtons and Arla Foods.

Expert professionals, from The Packaging Society, will provide one-to-one advice on any area of your product’s lifecycle at the Packaging Consultancy Clinic. There will also be a return of the Lions’ Lair, where a number of the show’s exhibitors pitch their latest innovations to a panel of experts, in a bid for their development to be crowned best of show.

The BIG Packaging Debate, inspired by BBC Question Time, will see a panel of packaging professionals debate the topic: ‘Consumers don’t buy Sustainable Packaging’. The debate will take place on the International Brand Summit at 15:30, 27 February.
