Pro2Pac and Waste-Works have revealed an exciting line-up of high-profile speakers for the three-day event which returns to ExCeL London this March. A host of well-known industry experts including Dick Searle, CEO of The Packaging Federation, Jonny MacNeal, Business Development Manager at Insignia Technologies (winner of Best New Concept at the 2016 UK Packaging Awards) and Simon Rayner of Friends of the Earth, will take to the ‘Outside the Box’ stage – built entirely from recyclable cardboard! – to discuss a wide range of packaging-related issues. Underlining the event’s new combined waste and packaging focus, these will include topics such as the coffee cup recycling debate, the reduction of food waste through packaging and shelf life maximisation technologies.

Additional speakers include Andrew Jackson, Director of ooh-AR Technologies, who will discuss augmented reality, and Antoinette Devine, an experienced packaging professional who has previously worked with Bacardi, talking on the ‘Juxtaposition of Waste and Sustainability’ in the Luxury Packaging Sector.

These bite-sized and thought-provoking ‘industry insight’ briefings will run throughout each day while the lunchtime panel debates will see a number of experts share their views on a wide range of hot topics.  These will include an assessment chaired by Philip Chadwick, editor of Packaging News, of how the packaging industry will fare post-Brexit, as well as the ‘Storm in a Coffee Cup’ debate chaired by Martin Kersh, executive director of the FPA, with Peter Goodwin (Closed Loop Recycling), Chris Sherrington (Eunomia environmental consulting), Simon Rayner (Friends of the Earth), Joanna Gilroy (Bunzl) and Adrian Pratt (Benders Paper Cups).  For full details of the speaker timetable and topics, visit pro2pac.co.uk/outsidethebox

Nick Piper, Event Manager for Pro2Pac said:  “We’re delighted to welcome such high profile names from the packaging sector, both brand owners and manufacturers alike from across the globe, to take part in our speaker programme which promises to tackle the latest challenges affecting our industry, head on.”

Alongside these expert workshops, more than 120 food and drink packaging companies including Coveris, Henkelman UK, Organic Waste Logistics and Rapid Action Packaging will be on hand at Pro2Pac and Waste-Works to offer inspiration, advice and exceptional packaging solutions.
