FMCG, beauty, luxury drinks, and premium product professionals are invited to attend this year’s all-new seminar format at London Packaging Week. With specially curated content designed to showcase the industry’s most cutting-edge insights, emerging trends, and pressing challenges, the programme is not to be missed.
The content will take place over three new stage concepts, when the event takes place on 21 and 22 September at London Olympia.
The Food and FMCG Future Makers stage will provide visitors with all they need to know about the future of food and FMCG packaging. Seminars will be delivered by the brands best keeping up with the rapid evolution of food retail, and the associations and organisations behind these changes. Speakers taking to the stage include Nestlé, DEFRA, WRAP, Unpackaged, OPRL, and Appetite Creative, to name just a few.
The Luxury Unboxed stage will showcase the diverse perspectives on the future of packaging within the luxury retail, fashion, jewellery, and fine foods markets. Speakers from the likes of Hunter Luxury and Elmwood will explore exciting aesthetic and practical design innovations, looking at how evolving consumer behaviour should impact packaging decisions.
Elsewhere, the Beauty and Drinks Innovators stage will promote the strategies, materials, and technologies that are reimagining the end user experience to increase engagement with consumers more than ever before. Speakers from IJO Skincare, Morrama, Sharp End, BEAUTYSTREAMS, and Butterfly Cannon, will share real-world insights from the top brands and design agencies working together to redefine packaging.
Alongside three packed seminar stages, The Pentawards, the global platform and community for packaging design, will also deliver six exclusive Capital of Design sessions. Here, speakers will use examples of award-winning packaging concepts to illustrate how attention to detail can power packaging to capture the attention of the market.
Finally, The Big Debate series will return by popular demand to discuss topics including ‘how to make true progress to minimise packaging’s impact on the planet’.
Josh Brooks, Marketing and Community Director for Easyfairs’ Packaging Events, comments: “Our all new London Packaging Week event presents us with the perfect opportunity to redesign our seminar content. Our free-to-attend speaker sessions are part of what our event is known for and why visitors continue to come back each year. For 2022 we have three dedicated stages for all areas of packaging, meaning that there really is something for everyone to takeaway. We hope these insights will allow visitors to improve and adapt their own packaging concepts for the better.”
