London Packaging Week to dock at Excel London

Tue 02/05/2023 by Richard Wilkinson

London Packaging Week will again assume its place at the epicentre of the packaging industry later this summer, but in a brand-new home – the world-famous ExCeL Centre in London.

London’s premier international convention and events venue, situated on the historic Royal Victoria Dock’s northern quay, will host four co-located events – Packaging Premiére, PCD, PLD, and Food & Consumer Pack – held on 21 & 22 September.

Event organiser, Easyfairs, is delighted to secure such an iconic venue. The docks continue to draw people and produce from all over the world some 167 years after their opening.

As one of the world’s most connected venues, the ExCel offers more space, extra parking, and improved transport links. With more convenient hotels, London Packaging Week promises an enhanced visitor experience for the thousands of anticipated visitors.

“We’re already fielding an increased number of enquiries from people wanting to find out what opportunities might lie within this showpiece event for their business,” said Renan Joel, Managing Director, Packaging at Easyfairs.

“There’s a reason London Packaging Week remains the beating heart of a global network of brands, innovators, designers and creators – its credentials in breaking down what the next 12 months and beyond have in store for the world of package design, branding, and material innovation, are second to none.”

PROPER snacks healthy foods founder Cassandra Stavrou, wellbeing guru Liz Earle MBE, and Candy Kittens confectionary co-founder Jamie Laing have also been revealed as the first confirmed headline speakers, with more very exciting names set to be confirmed soon. The full content programme is set to be released in early June.

The four shows combine to capture the inspiring free-spiritedness of the art and fashion worlds and blend them with the cutting-edge science and technology of packaging to create a unique showcase.

Packaging Premiére is focused on the future of luxury packaging. It matches visitors from the ExCel Design – combines the world’s most cutting-edge cosmetics packaging solutions under one roof. Meanwhile, PLD focuses on Premium and Luxury Drinks packaging, connecting designers, specifiers, and buyers across the premium beverage industry. Completing the event is Food & Consumer Pack, which highlights the latest innovations in the food and FMCG sector and attracts global brands and manufacturers.

Over 5,000 expected visitors will have access to over a hundred of the best packaging suppliers and innovative solutions in design, sustainability, branding, e-commerce and more!
