Sustainable Wine Packaging

Following our recent events on the Future of Wine, alongside our Americas conference, and sustainable viticulture conference, we’re hosting this important event on how we define sustainable packaging, the facts about impact, what better glass looks like, alternatives, unintended consequences and the regulatory and incentives outlook.

A core theme will be consumer engagement and innovation, and what this can do to improve sales, and lower impact.

Please stay tuned. We will be releasing more information about this conference soon. Register to receive updates via email.

We’re also looking for speakers, sponsors and supporter to join – please contact us to get involved.

Attendance is free, but may be limited to the first 1000 sign ups
Register as soon as possible to secure your place!
