'Start-Up Village' puts innovation at heart of packaging

Packaging Innovations 2020 is encouraging industry start-ups to apply to take part in the ‘Start-Up Village’, a platform designed to showcase the ground-breaking designs of up and coming companies.

The show invites companies to apply to take part at the 2020 edition, which last year featured cutting-edge start-ups, Talking Things, KKC Ltd, ProGlove, NWB, Linkz IM, Koepala, Garçon Wines and Flexi-Hex, when it returns to Birmingham’s NEC on 26 & 27 February.

Victoria Blake, Event Director of Easyfairs’ UK Packaging Portfolio, says: “It’s a fascinating time to be part of the UK packaging industry. The country is exploding with start-ups, particularly within the scope of environmentally friendly and sustainable solutions, and we are committed to giving those companies a platform to meet some of the largest manufacturers and retailers in the country.

“It is an opportunity that might otherwise take years and require huge investment to achieve. Last year’s Start-Up Village was such a huge success we just had to bring it back for 2020.”

Companies wishing to be considered must complete the online application form by Friday 24th January, with the list of successful applicants announced at the end of the following week.
