The Sustainable Packaging Disruptors Showcase is now open for submissions! Submit your innovation for consideration by the prestigious Selection Committee of investors & industry leaders. Final submission date: 17th May 2019

Registered delegates will have the unique opportunity to book up to 9 20-minute-long pre-scheduled meetings during the conference using our dedicated meeting platform, Meeting MOJO.

Why Attend

For many brands, retailers and packaging companies, it has taken up to 50 years to understand the multifaceted functionality of plastics. From its shelf life preservation abilities to its low cost, it has been quite accurately described as the ‘ubiquitous workhorse material of the modern economy’1. However, growing consumer and regulatory pressures, China’s ban on imported plastic waste, and a looming deadline to eliminate plastic waste by 2025, has meant that though it took 50 years to bring it in, many companies only have 5 years to phase it out.

In response, investments and partnerships in the sustainable packaging space are booming, with Chanel’s investment into biodegradable material company Sulapac and Coca-Cola’s deal with Ioniqa Technologies to develop and deploy high-quality recycled PET for its bottles. Innovation and investment interest in alternatives to traditional plastic packaging is at an all-time high.

The inaugural Sustainable Packaging Investment Summit will bring together the entire ecosystem, introducing innovative start-ups to brands needing greener packaging solutions and investors keen to learn more about this lucrative market.

‘Meeting Mojo’ Pre-Scheduled Meeting Platform: Registered delegates will have an opportunity to book up to nine 20-minute-long pre-scheduled meetings during the conference using our dedicated meeting platform.

We value your ROI and will work with you directly on your specific goals and targets – that’s why we take special care in finding the most relevant end-users to attend, so that your financial and resource investment is smartly allocated.
