Report on Canadean Beverage Packaging Conference 2016

29 November 2016

On 25-26 October 2016 the Canadean Beverage Packaging Conference returned to Brussels for its fifth consecutive year. The event brought brand-owners of non–alcoholic and alcoholic beverages together to discuss the latest packaging trends and promote innovative thinking. This was strongly stimulated by excellent presentations of Heineken, Grolsch, Aptar, ArcelorMittal, Alupro, Dupont and many more.
This edition focussed on three key trends the industry is facing; convenience, sustainability and disruption. Chairman of the event was NVC-director Michael Nieuwesteeg, who also hosted an interactive workshop on novel cooperation in financing (crowdfunding) for packaging innovations.
