WIP UK to support Packaging Collective event

Women In Packaging UK (WIP UK), the leading UK initiative bringing together women in the packaging industry, will be presenting at Packaging – A Collective Way Forward on November 6 and supporting the day’s event.

Hosted by print and packaging community The Packaging Collective, the event brings notable industry peers together to strategise for the future of the sector, focussing on the sustainability issues that affect the print and packaging industry in today’s challenging social and economic climate.

WIP UK co-founder Jo Stephenson is among the speakers who will be sharing their industry experience to drive sector progress. The event connects organisations across the supply chain that face similar sustainability issues and ensures every organisation has a voice.

“It’s so important that we continue to move the industry forward together in a unified direction,” she commented. “Events such as Packaging – A Collective Way Forward help us put fundamental goals on the table that work for everyone. Together we have a very deep knowledge pool – it becomes easier to identify the ultimate goal for us and pinpoint how we’re going to reach it. From tackling the spread of consumer misinformation to identifying new technology opportunities, working together helps us find solutions that work for every organisation.”

Sanjay Patel, Packaging Collective co-founder, added: “We’re delighted that WIP UK is supporting the event and joining the growing list of speakers for the day, truly reinforcing the need for a collective strategy. The print and packaging industry thrives on collaboration and as the sustainability challenges begin to mount, that will be our greatest strength.”

Packaging – A Collective Way Forward takes place at Stationers’ Hall, Ave Maria Lane, London (EC4M 7DD) on November 6. Tickets are available to book on EventBrite.
