Going Virtual

Adapting plans to

The Sustainable Packaging Summit 2020 was supposed to take place in Lisbon. Due to the global pandemic, we've redesigned this year's summit as a series of live, virtual events - free to join - from 29th October to 3rd December.

While we could host a physical gathering this year, we don't believe it's possible to deliver the quality of discussion & networking that define the Sustainable Packaging Summit. So we've chosen to go digital.

Instead of assembling for two days in the European Green Capital, we'll be hosting a season of world-class panels, workshops and networking sessions. Register to join us here.

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.

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
