THE Plastics Packaging Show (PPS) exhibition and conference will be held for the first time on 16 and 17 June 2015 at the Telford International Centre.
Packaging accounts for 38% of the total consumption of plastics in the UK and the new Plastics Packaging Show (PPS) focuses exclusively on this large and thriving sector.
PPS will bring together brand owners, packaging producers, designers and a wide range of decision makers. The event’s conference will run throughout the two days of the event and tackle core issues for the plastics packaging industry in markets as diverse as food, drink, healthcare, medical and cosmetics.
Topics covered will include changes in UK and European packaging legislation, sustainability and recycling, design trends, innovation in materials and manufacturing and process techniques including the latest in 3-D printing for packaging. There will also be a conference session dedicated to the innovations in plastic caps and closures.
