As the registration for Packaging Innovations opens, easyFairs has announced that there will be two major new features when the show returns to the NEC on 27 & 28 February 2013.
Firstly, there will be a high-level Conference where packaging industry professionals will discuss innovation, the future direction of the industry and opportunities and trends in the market. Along with the inaugural BIG Print Debate, at which industry experts will debate speed to market and the crucial topical issues in print.
“We’re always looking for new ways to move the shows forward,” says Matt Benyon, Managing Director easyFairs UK. “The packaging industry is constantly evolving and we work hard to ensure the show not only keeps pace with changes but anticipates trends and actually helps drive things forward.”
The brand new features will run alongside show favourites. These include 50 content-rich learnShop seminars, packaging surgeries hosted by The Packaging Society. The dragons’ den inspired contest, Lions’ Lair, where innovators pitch their latest products to a panel of experts, plus the BIG Packaging Debate.
A drinks reception for all those visiting the show will also be held after the BIG Packaging debate, where delegates can meet the expert panel and the rest of the speakers at the show.
Packaging Innovations is co-located with five other shows: Ecopack, Contract Pack, Packtech, Print Innovations and new for 2013 Labelling Innovation offering packaging professionals a wealth of interactive and informative features to give inspiration and new ideas to take back to the workplace.
