The 2012 edition of Packaging Innovations Show London will play host to a new Best of British feature to showcase products that have been re-branded to celebrate the events of 2012.
The event, at the Business Design Centre, Islington, will be on 4 and 5 October.
There will be 155 exhibitors at the show and organiser easyFairs is expecting a "healthy" increase on last year’s 2,382 visitor attendance.
The event will feature 40 free mini learnShops covering the challenges facing the fast-growing online sector for general merchandise products and some of the work they are doing to improve process and packaging performance.
Retail giants Coca-Cola, Tesco Direct and The Fairtrade Foundation have all signed up to speak at the show.
UBM has moved a step closer towards the acquisition of US organiser Advanstar.
The American firm, valued at US$972 million (£599 million) specialises in fashion, licensing, life sciences and powersports events.
