Packaging Innovations London draws an international crowd

Packaging Innovations London 2013 will be more international than ever before. Over 30 overseas packaging suppliers have signed up to exhibit at the show, which takes place at the Business Design Centre on 1 & 2 October.

Major names from territories as diverse as Belgium, Germany, Spain, Italy, France, Switzerland, Sweden, Poland and the Netherlands, including GMUND, Dapy Paris, Papeteries de Montsegur, Texido, SmartSeal, Favini, and Bandall International will all be exhibiting. The show’s international reach extends beyond mainland Europe. For instance Knoll Prestige Packaging and the Direct Source Packaging Company, both from the USA, plus Glamour Box from Hong Kong, have also confirmed they will be showcasing their latest products and services.

Commenting on the growing international stature of Packaging Innovations London, Alison Church, Packaging Innovations’ Event Director, says:

“London is known as a marketing and design hub, a central point where developments for many of the world’s most famous brands begin. It is also the luxury brand capital of the world. Our show taps into that by being the only event that brings together the top decision makers working in these areas under one creative roof.”

Simret Woldu, International Sales Manager at GMUND UK, agrees:

“London is at the heart of the design, brand and innovation community; it’s the place where many designers and buyers working for major luxury brands go when looking for new ideas.”

Packaging Innovations London at the Business Design Centre is co-located with Luxury Packaging and the Brand & Design Village. There are a host of show features including The BIG Packaging Debate and a host of inspirational learnShop seminars.
