Following consultation with the industry at large and after taking an overview of the continuing COVID-19 complications, Easyfairs has taken the decision to postpone June’s Packaging Innovations and Empack to February 2022.
Now slated for 16th & 17th February at Birmingham’s NEC, the very welcome return will reunite the packaging industry, offering networking opportunities and a world-leading exhibition, with insights from some of the industry’s leading experts on a wide range of trends.
In the meantime, however, Packaging Innovations and Empack have launched a new digital sector-specific publication, ‘Packaging In Focus’, which brings together voices from the different corners of the packaging market. Experts and guest contributors shine a light on the upcoming trends, share their experiences on the latest challenges and inspirational design ideas with readers.
Renan Joel, Divisional Director for Easyfairs UK & Global’s packaging events, comments: “We have been working closely with our exhibitors and key stakeholders to secure the best possible option to run the event and provide the industry with an opportunity to meet and do business this summer, and as such we have worked tirelessly to put in place numerous safety measures to ensure we can deliver a safe event to the highest possible standards. However, with the Government’s most recent announcement that large-scale indoor events will not be permitted until 21 June at the earliest, it has become impossible to run the June 2021 edition.
“We understand how important it still is for us as humans to connect and continue to foster key relationships face to face. We are confident that, in 2022, we will be able to bring the community back together in a more powerful way than ever! In the lead up to the show, Packaging Innovations and Empack will build a community around not only the live event but also a year-long experience of relevant and insightful content and collaboration by the industry and for the industry!”
