The one-day conference will bring together people from all corners of the industry such as packaging technologists, specifiers, suppliers, design and brand agencies and more.

The focus will be on the challenges that the world of spirits packaging is currently facing, as well as the opportunities that come along with them. The programme includes speakers from distillery owners, design agencies, industry bodies as well as representatives from some of the biggest names in the spirits sector.

As well as learning from some of the most influential speakers as they tackle the biggest issues in the current market, attendees will also benefit from accessing exclusive exhibition-style area, where they will meet top industry suppliers showcasing their latest products and offerings.
