New Beauty and Cosmetics Concepts
Suppliers from across the personal care, cosmetics and beauty sectors will display their latest products, technologies, and innovations live on the show floor.
Robinson PLC will highlight its range of personal care and beauty products, including plastic bottles, pots, tubs, containers, and jars. Its two-piece book jackets, which can be used to launch a variety of new products, including new cosmetics ranges, will also be on show. The jacket paperboard is made from 100% post-consumer recycled paper and is widely recyclable.
New Vision Packaging will present a selection of luxury folding cartons, available to brands and retailers operating in the cosmetic and beauty markets. New Vision has worked alongside Ted Baker, Seksy and Porsche to create personal care packaging which adds value to both brands and end-user.
Grenier Packaging will showcase its K3® r100 solution – an innovative plastic tub featuring a tear-tab, designed to make separating the plastic and cardboard easier and more intuitive for consumers to aid recycling.
K3® r100 enables cardboard and plastic to be assigned to the correct material streams during the initial sorting process.
Finally, Colorlites will display its fully customisable glassware range. The glass can be used for a range of personal care items, including sprays, fragrance bottles, and cosmetics tubs. The products can be decorated using a vignette finish, hot foil, or transfers.
Held across three stages, Packaging Innovations and Empack 2022 will host an in-depth seminar programme, aimed at addressing a plethora of issues affecting the industry. The two Packaging Innovations stages will address the latest industry news affecting packaging designers and technologists, and guests can hear from several brand owners and entrepreneurs on their visions for the coming year.
Meanwhile, the Empack Stage will feature topics aimed at the manufacturing, logistics and processing sectors, with talks covering subjects such as e-fulfilment, energy efficiency and robotics.
The show’s headline feature, The Big Debate, will address the latest challenges in packaging regulations relating to sustainable development, and how packaging professionals can adapt to the new legislation.
The popular ‘Dragon’s Den’ style competition, the Ecopack Challenge, will return with Laura Fernandez from Ocado leading the judging panel. Here, sustainability innovators will pitch their solutions before a panel of experienced judges, in a bid to win the title.
Elsewhere, the Innovation Showcase will return to Packaging Innovations and Empack 2022, in a competition seeing 12 finalists and their solutions compete for the title of ‘Most Innovative Pack’.
Renan Joel, Divisional Director at Easyfairs, concludes: “It has been a long time without an NEC show, and we can’t wait to be back in Birmingham this year. It will be great for the packaging community to see old and new faces, and foster great connections within the industry. We have a packed line-up this year, with a huge variety of exhibitors, an expert-led seminar programme and several exciting challenges and competitions. There is truly something for everyone. We can’t wait for the doors to open!”
