The team organizing the upcoming Packaging Innovations & Empack which is set to take place at Birmingham, NEC starting on February 15th and running through February 16th, has officially announced their first batch of speakers that will be hosting at the event.
Martin Kersh, Executive Director of the FPA; Paul Jenkins, founder of ThePackHub; and Jude Allan, Chair of the IOM3 Packaging Group are all set to hold talks.
“The line-up at Packaging Innovations this year is unmissable – there is something for attendees from every industry and job function” Renan Joel, Managing Director, Packaging Division at event organizer Easyfairs said in an official statement.
“This is more than just a packaging event, it’s about the future – of packaging, yes, but also of retail, brands, and the supply chain that connects us all together. The theme of this year’s event is to offer solutions for every step of the packaging journey, from concept to fulfilment and everything in between. Even though this is only the first batch of speakers we’ll announce, we hope it’s a statement of intent for where we want the show to be.”
Packaging Innovations & Empack, Featuring Contract Pack & Fulfilment features three stages: Design & Innovation, Circular Economy, and Supply Chain.
“We have more announcements to come as we complete what is sure to be our liveliest speaking program yet,” Joel stated. “Our aim is to pack as much value as possible into each free ticket. A free ticket alone doesn’t automatically make an event worth attending – but a schedule packed with insightful talks and a show floor full of world-leading businesses to network with certainly does!”
George Thompson, Robotic Systems Sales Manager at Güdel and Chairman of BARA; Steve Honour, Design Leader at Diageo; and Jane Bevis, Executive Chair of OPRL are other speakers that are scheduled.
