Record registration at Packaging Innovations event

Leading multi-format event organiser Easyfairs is celebrating following a big turn-out for its Packaging Innovations & Empack, Featuring Contract Pack & Fulfilment showcase, which was well recieved from both attendees and invited guests.

Registrations to the event were at a record high and over 6,500 unique attendees visited Birmingham’s NEC over the course of the two-day event, a 21% increase in comparison to the 2022 show.

The show included a number of insightful talks which were held across three stages. Among the guest speakers were Paul Jenkins, managing director of The PackHub, who discussed the resurgence of paper-based solutions and the rise of bio-based materials as part of the shift away from plastic.

The show was also highlighted as a great opportunity to network.

Kayleigh Russell, sales manager at Micro Delta Packaging, was among the attendees full of praise for the show: We have had a brilliant show with lots of leads. As always, Easyfairs was organised and professional. We can’t thank the team enough.”

Speaking after the event, Renan Joel, managing director packaging division at Easyfairs, said: “We want to thank every speaker, exhibitor, and the thousands of visitors who came from across the world to make this the biggest and best Packaging Innovations yet. It was a show where we pushed the envelope and tried so many new things, from the Foodservice Zone to the Future Trailblazer launch to Contract Pack & Fulfilment being elevated to a third ‘headline act’ to make this a triple event.

“It’s incredibly gratifying to see all the new things we tried meet such a positive response thanks to the hard work and passion of our Easyfairs team. The only problem is trying to make next year’s show even better, but we’re definitely up for the challenge.”

Attendees wishing to register their interest in 2024’s showcase can do so by visiting now. Easyfairs’ next UK-based packaging showcase is London Packaging Week, held on 21 & 22 September at ExCeL London.
