Why Attend

The inaugural Sustainable Packaging Investment Summit, aims to bring together the entire packaging value chain, connecting brands moving towards greener packaging solutions to innovative start-ups who are looking to work with them. The summit will also connect start-ups with investors who are keen to learn about this lucrative market and make measurable, impactful and environmentally-beneficial investments.

Join us in London on the 11th of July to meet some of the the pioneering brands leading the circular economy to build your investment pipeline, or as a start-up optimise this opportunity to present yourself as a thought leader in the sustainable packaging space and to connect with brands eager to partner and out-licence your innovative technology.

The Sustainable Packaging market has grown exponentially in recent years and is projected to reach USD $341.72 billion by 2023 at an estimated CAGR of 6.53% according to Business Wire.  Growing consumer pressure, China’s ban on imported plastic waste, and stringent EPR policies are some of the many reasons driving companies to adopt alternative solutions to plastic packaging.

With many brands, retailers and packaging companies announcing their commitment to exclusive use of reusable, recyclable or compostable packaging by 2025, external innovation and partnerships are integral to meeting this impending deadline.

‘Meeting Mojo’ Pre-Scheduled Meeting Platform: Registered delegates will have an opportunity to book up to nine 20-minute-long pre-scheduled meetings during the conference using our dedicated meeting platform.

Become a Sponsor

Kisaco Research provides the much needed platform on which industry executives can network, connect and learn from each other as well as meet potential industry partners.

Far from the typical ‘meet-and-greet’ exhibition experience, you – as a sponsor or exhibitor – will be positioned as a partner of the event with a focus on the benefits of your product and brand, rather than just a name on an exhibition list.

With our extensive marketing experience and strategy, your partnership with Kisaco Research will grant you a sponsorship package that is an extension and enhancement of your current marketing and branding efforts. We value your ROI and will work with you directly on your specific goals and targets – that’s why we take special care in finding the most relevant end-users to attend, so that your financial and resource investment is smartly allocated.
