How attending this conference will benefit you?

The overall market for e-commerce packaging will grow rapidly in the coming years, expanding at an annual growth rate of 14.3% from 2017 through to 2022. This growth will see e-commerce packaging including corrugated packaging, flexible packaging, protective and transit packaging reaching almost $55 billion in 2022.

The rapidly evolving nature of e-commerce as a sales and delivery channel is making it one of the most attractive areas of the global packaging industry, with brands, logistics companies, conventional and online retailers, converters and material suppliers all positioning themselves to take advantage of this.

Addressing this fast-changing market will require the overall packaging supply chain to meet new requirements. Companies must adapt and evolve packaging that meets all the needs of the market. Not only will the packaging be required to fulfil the massively growing market but the packaging itself must evolve. New technologies and materials need to be utilised to make packaging safer and more efficient, while considering the environmental impact of the waste and package disposal as well as supply chain efficiency.

Packed with first-hand experience, leading brands and retailers will be sharing their insights, best practice and lessons learned on their e-commerce packaging journeys at E-PACK Europe. 

The conference provides the perfect platform to stay ahead of the latest trends and developments making the biggest impact across the supply chain.
