Packaging Innovations & Empack delayed until May

Event organiser Easyfairs has announced that the 2022 edition of its Packaging Innovations & Empack show will be delayed until May.

The event will remain at the NEC in Birmingham

The event had been due to take place at the NEC in Birmingham in February, but will now run – at the same venue – from May 25th to 26th.

Easyfairs says the decision to postpone was made in consultation with the event’s partners, exhibitors and the community as a whole, taking into account both the emergence and spread of the Omicron variant of Covid-19.

This, Easyfairs says, in combination with recommendations to work from home and new travel restrictions for overseas participants, made it “impossible to plan for a successful event in February”.

Renan Joel, divisional director for Easyfairs’ packaging events in the UK and France, says: “It is our mission to run fantastic events that connect the packaging community, drive innovation and business and give a truly inspiring vision of the future. 

“We want to ensure that the next edition of Packaging Innovations & Empack at the NEC does this and moving the event to May will give the whole community the best chance of having the event it deserves.

“I would like to thank all the stakeholders in our event – exhibitors, associations, media and visitors – for their support for the change in dates. We can’t wait to bring them all together in May and help them drive their innovations for the year to come.”
