Packaging Innovations, a series of primary and secondary European packaging events organised by Easyfairs, is teaming up with the Pentawards, a prestigious worldwide competition exclusively devoted to packaging design, to deliver a new event in New York on September 5 & 6, 2018.
“The event is designed to be an exclusive format of hand-selected suppliers and exclusively-invited buyers, running alongside the Pentawards Conference and Pentawards Live, a global curation of award winning packaging design. This unique concept will bring together an exclusive mix of brands, design agencies, packaging manufacturers, material producers and innovators across all market sectors to learn, network, discover, collaborate and do business,” announced Easyfairs in a release.
Easyfairs’ Packaging Innovations events have seen extensive growth since the launch of the first exhibition in Birmingham in 2006, focusing on innovations in the design and production of packaging as well as materials and finishes, rather than the heavy machinery aspect of packaging. The company’s portfolio of packaging events (which covers brands such as Empack, Label&Print, Luxury Packaging, ADF, PCD and the Pentawards) now covers 38 events in 19 cities across 12 countries, and attracts over 85,000 visitors each year. As well as the New York edition, further global launches are planned for the brand in the coming years.
Located at the Metropolitan Pavilion in Manhattan, the show will take place alongside ADF (Aerosol Dispensing Forum) and PCD (Packaging of Perfume, Cosmetics & Design). ADF&PCD, which in 2018 will be in its third year, is North America’s only dedicated event for the aerosol, dispensing, perfume and cosmetic packaging community, having launched in the US after a long successful history in Paris. “The co-location of Packaging Innovations with ADF&PCD will facilitate a crossover of key buyers between the two shows,” added Easyfairs.
