Holywell Park Conference Center, Loughborough | Thursday 18 November
Connect Today to Define Tomorrow - Join us at the Esko Innovation Summit, the must attend event designed to help you navigate the latest innovations and trends in packaging to embrace a smarter, more sustainable future.
The pandemic has accelerated existing packaging megatrends and added a fresh impetus for innovation. It’s clear, there is no simple solution to today's packaging challenges. Instead, companies need to pursue a transformational approach, adapting and rethinking multiple aspects in the entire packaging lifecycle. Our summit is designed to showcase new solutions, share success stories, discuss new market trends, and provide tangible tools to help you positively transform and advance your own business operations. This one-day event will offer you a unique platform to interact with the major players involved in this sector, from brand owners, packaging producers and suppliers through to technology developers.
