BCMPA July Conference to focus on futureproofing

The BCMPA – the Association for Contract Manufacturing, Packing, Fulfilment & Logistics, will be hosting its first full conference since 2018, focusing on the latest industry trends and challenges in third-party outsourcing.

Held at the Delta by Marriot Nottingham Belfry on the 10th of July, the conference will be an opportunity for BCMPA members and other professionals to network, share their knowledge, and gain insight into the ever-evolving landscape of the third-party outsourcing sector.

Key topics that will be discussed throughout the day include the rising demand for sustainable practices across the supply chain, recent changes surrounding environmental regulations and effective strategies for carbon reduction, digitalisation and trends within the fulfilment sector.

Emma Verkaik, CEO at the BCMPA said; “Our recent member survey highlighted an increasing want for networking opportunities. This conference is designed to meet that need, offering a platform for face-to-face collaboration, knowledge exchange, and partnerships, as well as tackling some of the challenges currently facing the world of contract manufacturing, packing, fulfilment and logistics.

“Our hope is that all attendees will gain a valuable overview of the most pressing industry challenges and leave with an understanding of how to combat these within their own business.”

Speakers include Josephine Coombe, CCO of Nulogy, co-lead sponsor of the conference alongside the exhibition organiser of Packaging Innovations and the Contract Pack & Fulfilment Show, Easyfairs. Additionally, Kevin Vyse, Head of Technical at ProAmpac RAP and Jude Allen, Interim Managing Director at OPRL, will shed light on sustainable packaging and navigating the challenges of EPR legislation in outsourcing. In addition, there will be a presentation on the global economic outlook from respected economist Trevor Williams, and a look at the consumer trends in fulfilment by Andrew McLelland of IOM3 as well as others.

Additionally, the event sponsors will offer delegates a chance to learn more about the services they offer in supporting the third-party outsourcing industry and include Acopia Group Ltd, AddParts, Autopack, Benchmark, Element Logic, Keystone Law and Two Blue Solars.

Tickets for the conference are now available to both members and non-members, with an option for overnight accommodation and an informal networking dinner on the 9th of July.
