Easyfairs’ Packaging Innovations and Empack returns to the NEC on 16-17 February and will aim to showcase the best of industry throughout the supply chain, from design and development through to packaging, filling and fulfilment.
The show will connect specifiers and buyers with the suppliers, materials, technologies and expert knowledge they need to create the future of their brand’s packaging and packing lines.
Content will be tailored for the food and drinks, pharmaceutical and chemical, personal care, household, label and printing, and contract packing sectors.
Visitors will be able to meet with over 300 of the industry’s suppliers to discover the latest trends and innovations, from design and manufacturing through to on-shelf.
The event will aim to bring new perspectives and create new business and innovation opportunities for individuals involved in designing and developing primary and secondary packaging, with new materials and formats across the event.
For directors of packaging and filling operations, Empack will provide an opportunity to meet with suppliers that understand the trends and technologies that can solve manufacturing challenges faced by the industry.
The event will also host a free-to-attend seminar programme which will enable visitors to hear from innovators and policy influencers.
Renan Joel, divisional director at Easyfairs, said: “We are extremely excited to welcome everyone back to the NEC for Packaging Innovations and Empack in February. Nothing beats being able to share ideas and do business face-to-face, and after a year without the Birmingham show, there is a lot to catch up on.
“As always, innovation remains at the heart of our NEC event. Visitors will have the opportunity to discover the very best the packaging industry has to offer across all sectors and be able to learn from the brightest minds in the industry through our carefully curated content. I can’t wait to welcome everyone back to the NEC next year.”
