Following on from the successful launch of E-PACK in the USA, Smithers Pira are excited to now launch this one-of-a-kind conference in Europe. The inaugural event will take place in Berlin on 26-27 March 2019 at the Radisson Blu.
With consumer e-commerce shipments increasing globally by 33% between 2014 and 2016, this distribution channel is fast developing from a niche to a volume application. This is presenting technical challenges for the packaging industry in terms of functional designs and protection. Simultaneously, it is opening up new business opportunities as the e-commerce supply chain for packaging technology differs significantly from that for traditional retail selling.
As the first cross industry conference in Europe to focus on technical discussions around leveraging the packaging industry to fulfill the growing e-commerce market, E-PACK Europe 2019 will support the packaging industry in the transition from in-store packaging to e-commerce packaging. This event will provide a platform for the packaging supply chain to discuss challenges and solutions in e-commerce packaging.
This conference is unmissable for anyone working within the packaging for e-commerce sector!
