EFIA & The Retail Institute at Leeds Beckett University Launch New Print & Packaging Innovations Seminar

April 23rd 2015 Kodak, Watford, WD18 8PX

The Board of EFIA is delighted to announce the organisation of a new industry seminar to be held on April 23rd 2015, in conjunction with The Retail Institute (formerly Faraday Institute) of Leeds Beckett University.

Focussing on key packaging and print industry needs and trends, the seminar will be held at Kodak UK Ltd, Croxley Green Business Park, Watford, WD18 8PX from 10am until 5pm and will provide a forum for a wide range of speakers across the flexo and packaging supply chain, from design to retailer, to address current and future trends and innovations. The intent of the day is to provide wide-ranging insight and inspiration to support EFIA members with strategic planning and innovation.

Newly appointed Chairman of EFIA, Andy Young of DS Smith, commented: “Once again we are listening to our members and understand that more support for our members to stay ahead of the market trends is needed. Working with strategic partners like The Retail Institute and Diamond Partners such as Kodak, is key to delivering insight and education for our industry. I would like to take this opportunity to thank both of them for supporting and facilitating this event. I’m thrilled with the cross section of the industry that has got involved, particularly the prestigious retailer clients we have talking to our members on the day, which will be extremely insightful.”

Confirmed speakers and topics for the day already include Karen Graley of Waitrose, Ian Schofield of Iceland, Sam Grimley of Blippar, Jo Stephenson of PHD Marketing and Grant Blewitt of Kodak.
