With a bumper attendance expected for London Packaging Week, here’s what visitors should look out for as they navigate the 170 exhibitors.
The countdown is on to London Packaging Week, the UK’s premier event for luxury packaging. There is just over a week to go until event organiser, Easyfairs, throws open the doors of the ExCeL exhibition centre and welcomes the thousands of registered visitors.
With so much to see and do, we’re here to help you pick your way through the capacity of 170 exhibitors who will pack every square foot of the venue.
Berlin Packaging, the world’s largest Hybrid Packaging Supplier® specialising in the supply of glass, plastic and metal packaging and closures, participates with two?booths at this year’s event.
Berlin Packaging | Spirits (PLD | Booth F76) will offer a glimpse of their unique capabilities in spirits packaging and the advanced services they can offer brands. The packaging services provider will aim to showcase an essential display of patented bottle designs with a special focus on packaging solutions for Gin and Whisky to all the booth visitors. Thanks to Studio One Eleven, the advisory, creative and innovation unit of Berlin Packaging, they will also look to demonstrate their design and innovation capabilities.
Berlin Packaging | Premi Industries (PCD | Booth E44) will highlight their in-house capabilities when meeting customer needs with consistently cutting-edge proposals for the beauty industry. Berlin Packaging specialises in packaging solutions for skincare, makeup, personal fragrance and home fragrance products. Among the new products expected to be on show are Airglass Refill & Go and Airglass Slim Refill & Go, which combine the safety of an airless solution with the sustainability of a refill.
The Makeup in Glass collection is enhanced by iconic glass bottles with a squared shape combined with round accessories, for an attractive, playful and immediately recognisable design. For the extra-premium packaging segment, Berlin Packaging | Premi Industries offers the sophisticated look of the Double Glass collection: the perfect mix of elegance and sophistication thanks to its attractive design, a tubular glass ampoule seemingly suspended inside a larger glass bottle that protects it from the outside while showcasing and enhancing the textures of the beauty formulas.
With over 200 years in the industry, Eviosys (PLD | G30) will be looking to demonstrate its credentials in providing smart, sustainable packaging that enhances the appeal of consumer brands in everyday life.
Delivering value through uncompromising design and world-class manufacturing, Eviosys’ products provide the highest levels of performance, safety and hygiene, with a clear commitment to preserving the environment and building a circular economy. Eviosys creates metal packaging, which can be recycled forever.
At this year’s London Packaging Week, Eviosys plans to launch its latest revolutionary innovation – ‘Horizon’—a brand-new ultra-light shallow metal overcap for tins. Horizon allows brands to adopt mono-material packaging. It provides the dry food industry with a complete, infinitely recyclable packaging solution to drive the move away from plastic.
Isabelle LeGraet, Marketing, Communication & Sustainability Manager, commented: “We are thrilled to be back at London Packaging Week. This year, we will once again showcase our commitment to excellence and sustainability with our newest product, Horizon, which will support the dry food industry in transitioning to sustainable packaging with features, shapes and finishes to make their product stand out from the crowd.”

The stand will demonstrate Antalis’ extensive selection of unparalleled products, including primary, secondary and tertiary packaging, and provide solutions for all applications.

Our experts are dedicated to collaborating closely with our clients to understand their needs and deliver innovative packaging solutions that communicate their brand message while reducing their environmental footprint – without compromising on quality or design.”
Delga (Food & Consumer Pack | Booth C42) will use this year’s exhibition to focus on four key emerging and increasingly important topics and influences on the packaging and label sector today: Sustainability, Personalisation, Connectivity and Engagement.
Delga will demonstrate the benefits of well-designed, embellished, considered and suitable packaging and label design that best shows off the innovative and cutting-edge technology available to customers and prospects across the two-day event.
Oliver Kleinman, Head of Marketing, commented: “We’re very excited to return to the show again this year. This year’s theme again focuses on topics we have identified as important and emerging buying requirements across the various market sectors we serve. Delga provides solutions for most requirements from clever and on-trend software applications such as Collage and Mosaic to print production technology encompassing HP Indigo Digital Print, Highcon Laser Cutting, Scodix Foil & Spot UV Embellishments as well as our traditional and well-established capabilities.”
Jenton Group (Food & Consumer Pack | A68) will present an extensive range of wrapping, packing and heat-sealing machines that can extend shelf life and reduce packaging and food waste on their stand.
The company will unveil the latest addition to its Soken brand- a multi-tool MAP heat seal packaging machine, the HS32CF-MAP. Capable of vacuum or modified atmosphere packaging, or a combination of the two, it significantly extends the shelf life of portioned tray-packed foods, including ready-to-eat mixed salads, pre-cut fruits and vegetables, sliced deli meats, raw meats and cheeses.
Jenton Managing Director Richard Little said: “The overarching theme today is and will continue to be sustainability. Jenton is continually engineering machines and sourcing new materials to give consumers what they want.”
Denny Bros (Food & Consumer Pack | C88) will be showcasing some of the latest developments within the word of labelling at the ExCeL exhibition centre in London.
Established in 1945 by brothers Douglas and Russell Denny in response to a simple question – “Where can we get dance tickets printed?” The company has since grown into a world-leading specialist print company through the simple willingness to learn and develop innovative new solutions in response to customer needs.
Their product portfolio includes a wide range of different labelling formats. Denny Bros works with various industries such as healthcare, cosmetics and personal care, and automotive and animal health.
Elsewhere, Amberley Labels (PCD | booth F80) will highlight its wide range of print embellishments, the?BCMPA?(Food & Consumer Pack |A74) will articulate the many benefits of outsourcing, and Kite (Food & Consumer Pack | C82) will share its industry expertise and showcase an array of packaging products and solutions.
