The Packaging and Converting Executive (PACE) Forum is an established and highly focused event that brings together packaging, procurement and sourcing directors to discuss key challenges faced by the packaging industry. This unique event also brings together executive and popular brands to discuss the current trends and innovation in this space.

Join us for our 16th year to exchange and discuss ideas and solutions over two days of case studies, interactive roundtables, panel discussions and practical one-to-one business meetings.

Key themes of the event are as follows:

We look forward to seeing you in March!
