The 2013 edition of Packaging for Retail Success – which is now in its third year – will feature top-level speakers from retailers such as Harrods, Iceland and Wilkinson’s as well as packaging and retail analysts from Kantar Worldpanel and Faraday Centre for Retail Excellence.

It will also feature presentations from the event’s sponsors, DS Smith Packaging, Sun Branding Solutions and MMR.

Who is it for?

The event is designed with two groups in mind.

On one hand, the food and drink NPD community that is the core audience of the Quality Food Awards, the UK’s top food NPD awards programme – and anyone else involved in making decisions about packaging at brands and retailers.

And on the other, the packaging supply chain, including packaging designers, manufacturers, materials suppliers and more.

Packaging for Retail Success is the only conference to bring these two audiences together in one place to learn how to make the best possible packaging for brands.


Packaging for Retail Success is jointly organised by leading industry title Packaging News and the UK’s premier food NPD awards, the Quality Food Awards.

The conference will take place during the daytime before the awards presentation dinner for the Quality Food Awards, which also takes place at the Grosvenor House hotel.
