Packaging Innovations 2018 – NEC, Birmingham

Packaging Innovations is a leading industry event which takes place annually at the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham.  It gives brands, retailers and specialists from a variety of industries such as beauty, food packaging and pharmaceutical, the opportunity to meet with hundreds of suppliers from the packaging supply chain.

This year’s show, held on 28th February and 1st March, gave visitors the chance to take part in free seminars and debates held across 5 stages throughout the event, where some of the biggest companies came together to discuss current topics, such as the argument for plastic verses recycled packaging, and other issues focused around specific industries.  Many brands used the event as a platform to launch their latest innovations, as audiences were introduced to new trends in labelling, packaging and printing.

As part of a community of 300+ exhibitors we were proud to present our range of REINER inkjet printers, COLOP hand stamps, and specialist inks.  We spent time demonstrating the use of stamps and handheld printers to mark directly onto packaging, of almost any material, without the need for labels. We also had the pleasure of being accompanied by two of our main suppliers; Boris Dorer – Ernst Reiner GmbH & Co. and Frank Zeitler – Noris Color GmbH, both of which had taken time to travel from Germany to be with us.  Thanks to the show we had the valuable opportunity to meet a large group of new prospective clients and network with respected industry professionals.
