Packaging Innovations & Empack Birmingham postponed to June 2021

With the ongoing restrictions surrounding COVID-19, Easyfairs announced the postponement of Packagin Innovations and Empack to June 2021 at Birmingham.

Renan Joel, Divisional Director for Easyfairs UK & Global’s packaging events stated, “With the UK Government’s continuing social distancing measures, new lockdown in England and push-back on the go live date for exhibitions, it has become increasingly clear that we will not have the opportunity to organise the Birmingham event with the confidence that we will be able to open the doors at the start of March”.

“We made the decision to postpone the March edition in close consultation with our exhibitors, visitors and partners, taking into account their feedback and requirements and balancing the need for an opportunity to come together with the current circumstances surrounding the pandemic in the UK. Our top priority is the health, safety and wellbeing of our exhibitors, visitors and staff” he added.

Easyfairs has run exhibitions in Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium successfully, all of which have been accredited by the industry standard SGS for adherence to the highest safety standards.

The organisers have been running weekly packaging Innovation Talks since March that have proved crucial for the packaging community’s continuing education and have consistently attracted hundreds of professionals for each event.

Joel also said, “Since the pandemic first hit earlier this year, we have maintained our proximity to our community through regular webinars, which have been vital to keep the industry informed of the latest developments and discuss crucial issues during this time of massive upheaval and change”.
