PACKWINE is a unique event that will bring together wine packagers and designers to showcase their latest innovations to 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.
