Situated on the Royal Victoria Dock’s northern quay, the venue will host four co-located events – Packaging Premiére, PCD, PLD, and Food & Consumer Pack – on 21 and 22 September.
Event organiser Easyfairs said the new venue offers more space, extra parking, improved transport links, and more convenient hotel options than its previous home of the London Olympia.
“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 expert Liz Earle, and Candy Kittens confectionery co-founder Jamie Laing have also been revealed as the first confirmed headline speakers, with more names set to be confirmed soon. The full content programme is set to be released in early June.
Packaging Premiére will focus on the future of luxury packaging while PLD will highlight premium and luxury drinks packaging, connecting designers, specifiers, and buyers across the premium beverage industry. Completing the event is Food & Consumer Pack, which will highlight the latest innovations in the food and FMCG sector.
Over 5,000 visitors and more than 100 packaging suppliers are expected, with the promise of innovative products in design, sustainability, branding, e-commerce and more.
Registrations for attendees will open shortly. More information is available at: londonpackagingweek.com.
