When London Packaging Week becomes the epicentre of the packaging industry later this summer at its brand-new home – the world-famous ExCeL centre in London – it will do so with its ‘biggest ever’ speaker line-up. Around 5,000 expected attendees, comprising industry leaders, designers, and passionate individuals, are set to come together on 21 & 22 September to explore the future of packaging.
“Whether you’re a seasoned packaging professional, an aspiring designer, or simply someone passionate about sustainable solutions, London Packaging Week is the event you won’t want to miss,” said Community & Content Manager, Parisa Maleki. “From design agencies, brand headliners, and entrepreneurs, to workshops with authors and addresses from key industry experts and associations, this year’s free-to-attend talks are set to be bigger than ever!”
On day 1, Entrepreneurs Marisa Poster and Teddie Levenfiche, who created Europe’s first matcha green tea-powered energy drink, shot to fame earlier this year when they won the backing of Dragons’ Den duo Peter Jones and Stephen Bartlett on the BBC 1 programme.
The dynamic duo will talk about how they changed the beverage game in the past year and global aspirations in their talk ‘Game, Set and Matcha!’ at midday on the Food Stage.
On day 2, Jamie Laing and Ed Williams will step onto the Food Stage (1:15 pm to 1:45 pm) for a ‘Meet the Founders’ interview, discussing their sweet-tasting success with one of the UK’s fastest-growing sweet brands, Candy Kittens.
Elsewhere, the indomitable Jo Stephenson, Managing Director of rising B2B PR firm PHD Marketing, will sit down to quiz Nestle, WRAP and Plastic Bank representatives on a revamp of the events’ usual panel session, ‘The big debate’; The Big Question.
London Packaging Week promises to go beyond the traditional exhibition format with bespoke workshops, seminars, and awards, allowing you to explore the latest packaging developments and learn from industry experts.
