Sustainability in Packaging Latin America

2023 Event Information
Coming Soon!



Smithers was pleased to present, Sustainability in Packaging Latin America, as we headed to an in-person event taking place August 16 - 18, 2022 in Mexico City!


This flagship packaging event regularly brings together representatives from across the entire packaging value chain, including brand owners, retailers, packaging converters, manufacturers, suppliers, recyclers, and more, to facilitate industry collaboration, support the sharing of ideas, explore innovative solutions, and deliver upon the collective promise of increased sustainability within the packaging industry.

Following a successful event held in 2022, we look forward to seeing everyone next year, as we continue to explore recent innovations and uncover new opportunities that are helping to make sustainable packaging a commercial reality.
