About the Event

The Sustainable Packaging Conference is the region’s premier forum for the packaging industry. The conference has been exclusively designed to provide comprehensive regional and global market insights to packaging industry professionals and all other relevant stakeholders, and delegates will have the opportunity to find actual sustainable solutions, keep abreast of the latest market trends, connect with colleagues, high-profile speakers and decision makers from across the supply chain and grow their business and network of contacts in the industry.

This distinctive virtual event will bring together brand owners, packaging and printing companies, manufacturers, retailers, food & beverage sector, consumer goods sector, pharmaceutical sector, technology providers, service providers, government entities, packaging associations/institutes, processing and recycling professionals, consumers, environmentalists and consultants from around the world.


The packaging industry is under increasing environmental pressure and the demand for sustainable packaging is growing stronger by the day. Packaging companies as well as retailers and other stakeholders are expected to align their approach and strategies with the fast changing sustainability goals, initiatives and innovative technologies that impact their businesses in different ways. Today, the focus is also on circular economy models worldwide.

There is also rising awareness among consumers on environmental issues and they are beginning to demand or seek sustainable alternatives. In fact, a recent Accenture study revealed that 50 percent of the world’s consumers are willing to pay more for sustainable products. Moreover, various governments in the region and globally have been expressing their commitment to tackling sustainability issues and are gradually implementing certain legislations that would aid in achieving their waste reduction and diversion targets. Many companies are looking for new opportunities and viable innovative techniques in manufacturing and packaging for various sectors. There are initiatives at the government, company or individual level and certain coalitions being formed to tackle issues like single-use plastic and so on.

While there are several initiatives around the world by companies and governments, there is an urgent need for constant dialogue and collaboration between all stakeholders on the broader goals, to be able to address together the challenges, explore new opportunities and learn from each other’s experiences to find the best possible solutions for a sustainable future. And this half day conference is your 360-degree view of the packaging industry, facilitating knowledge sharing and collaboration, offering a platform for industry professionals to engage in stimulating dialogues, address critical issues linked to adopting sustainable strategies that help transform businesses, share best practices, and understand the trends that would enable various stakeholders to find real solutions to meet their sustainability goals and actively contribute to the circular economy vision of various governments worldwide. If you are involved in the packaging business or concerned about sustainable packaging solutions, this is an opportunity you should not miss.
