Important Update

Covid-19 Contingency Plans

We are closely monitoring the international Covid-19 epidemic and its implications for the Sustainable Packaging Summit 2020. As of now, the best scientific projections suggest that the crisis will recede before October and the Summit will be able to go ahead as planned. However, we’ve made the following contingency plans to protect your health and ticket purchase.

If the coronavirus risk does not reduce, we will postpone the Summit. Tickets will be valid for the new date and we’ll refund those who cannot make it to the rescheduled event.

We’ll ensure that delegates can participate in the Summit through live streaming and digital tools should they be unable to travel.

15-16 October 2020 Lisbon
Featuring the Sustainability Awards 2020

The Sustainable Packaging Summit breaks the familiar industry event paradigms. A platform for meaningful and practical discussion that moves us forward on the key dilemmas, this is a ‘summit’ rather than another ‘conference’.

A carefully crafted agenda focusing on how we progress collaboratively, not self-congratulation

Leading players and thinkers from the value chain brought together with fresh visions and challenges from outside the world of FMCG packaging

Taking interactivity to the next level, with emphasis on discussion rather than presentation, innovative formats, and experience augmented by Packaging Europe’s multimedia content expertise

Gold Sponsors

As well as presenting global authorities on sustainability in packaging, the Sustainable Packaging Summit is partnering with key stakeholder organizations to reveal a holistic view of the challenges and enable cross-fertilization of knowledge.
