Exciting new developments, the latest trends and packaging requirements: takeaways from PACK EXPO Las Vegas
Sustainable & Smart packaging
Sustainability remained a trending topic at PACK EXPO Las Vegas, with participants presenting different solutions for eco-friendly and recyclable packaging materials which can help mitigate potential environmental impact. Overall, the increased sustainable packaging solutions available shows that consumers continue to look to brands to use eco-friendly packaging options and at the same time, companies are happily embracing the greener materials available to them.
Smart packaging also remained high on the expo agenda. While smart packaging and sustainable packaging aren’t necessarily new trends, a particularly interesting takeaway from the conference was that they are increasingly interlinked. Consumers are looking to brands to deliver the perfect mix of both in their packaging, and companies supplying packaging materials of all types are really tapping into this demand to deliver the required solutions.
