Celebrating wine packaging innovations at PACKWINE Forum & Expo

A unique event will bring together wine packagers and designers to showcase their latest innovations that will enhance Australian and New Zealand wine products in 2021 and beyond.


Presented by the wine industry’s leading publisher Winetitles Media, the 2021 PACKWINE Forum & Expo will feature three components: a forum to include expert industry speakers, an expo to feature leading wine packaging suppliers and an awards presentation to highlight the winning packaging designs of the year.

With packaging a critical factor in the success of wine branding and sales, PACKWINE will be an essential event for all wine professionals wanting to stay at the cutting edge of the industry.

Presented initially as a virtual event, PACKWINE will be published in the May 2021 issue of the Australian & New Zealand Grapegrower & Winemaker, the wine industry’s leading publication, with digital content also being published online.

One of the main elements of PACKWINE will be an industry-focused webinar, which will draw the leading lights of wine packaging and design, presenting insights into new technologies, products, services, marketing and more.

Industry and digital event ‘goers’ will also have the opportunity to network with leading packaging and design suppliers whose state-of-the-art products and services will be displayed at the PACKWINE Expo.

In their inaugural year, the PACKWINE Design Awards will celebrate the very best packaging innovations, with winners across several categories selected by an expert panel of industry luminaries.

Winetitles Media general manager Robyn Haworth said the coming event will provide a “comprehensive look” at the industry’s approach to packaging and design.

“The PACKWINE Forum & Expo is a wide-ranging event that covers the industry from manufacturing to marketing,” Ms Haworth said.

“This is an event from the industry, about the industry and for the industry.

“We look forward to industry members joining us in 2021 for this exciting event.”

Presented in cooperation with leading organisations, including Wine Packagers of Australia & New Zealand, PACKWINE builds a platform for the wine industry to come together to showcase its advances in all areas of wine packaging and design.
