London’s only packaging event and the UK’s only luxury packaging event, Packaging Innovations and Luxury Packaging London 2016, is set for a record year as it welcomes a host of leading industry suppliers. The show, which focuses on branded, inspirational and bespoke packaging, returns to London Olympia on 14 & 15 September 2016.
The exclusive two-day event will play host to The Dieline Conference London, the first of its kind outside of the US, which will deliver a series of sessions from both leading and emerging brands, as well as packaging suppliers and design agencies, to discuss the challenges and opportunities that arise when designing for a brand.
The show also boasts an expanded show floor, enabling buyers to discover more innovative ways to improve the appearance of their products, reduce environmental impact or find the next digital technology to enhance their packaging.
Over 170 leading suppliers have signed up, many of whom will be using the show to introduce their new products, services and solutions to the UK market.
For instance, James Cropper, supplier of the paper for Luxury Packaging 2016’s invitations, will present its first ever food contact-approved stock range of paper. The uncoated paper range, which is available in 12 eye-catching colours, is in response to growing demand for luxury papers within the food industry.
Swedbrand will be presenting its next generation technology of bag-in-box wine, called Topflow. This new-patented technology enables the wine to be poured from the top of the bag.
According to Rawlings – Black is the New Amber – with its new type of glass bottle, Black Glass. Its high gloss finish not only increases shelf presence, but its UV light protection acts as a taste protector, extending the life of the bottle’s contents.
In addition to The Dieline Conference London, the show will host The Starpack Awards, now in its 58th year, for the first time at the event across both days, and freshly rebranded The Beauty Forum will be returning along with The Drinks Symposium, The Great Innovation Debate, and The Innovation Wall.
