The event will now take place from December 8th to 9th at Olympia London

The event had been due to run from September 23rd to 24th at Olympia London, but will now instead take place from December 8th to 9th at the same venue.

In addition, Easyfairs has launched a series of new webinars to provide relevant content and tackle discussions important to the packaging community.

These ‘Innovation Talks’ will be run under the Packaging Innovations, Empack, Luxury Packaging, ADF, PCD and PLD brands, and be free to join.

Renan Joel, divisional director for Easyfairs UK and global packaging events, says: “The international outbreak and spread of Covid-19 has had a huge impact on everyone’s lives, and specifically in the exhibitions industry on the ability to bring people together and run live events.

“Whilst we have worked hard on health and safety measures to ensure that we could be very positive about the running of a safe and successful event in September, the two-week quarantine period for anyone arriving in the UK that was recently enforced as part of the UK Government Action Plan to tackle the Coronavirus outbreak, followed by last week’s announcement from the Prime Minister that events are only able to run as from October 1st, has unfortunately put us in the Force Majeure position of having to move the show.”

Joel continues: “We are looking forward to running an event in December that adheres to the highest level of sanitary and health standards, and will share more details in due course regarding the measures we will be putting in place to do so.

“We know that the packaging community will have absolute confidence in attending the event with their safety and health being top priority.”
