Panel: Future packaging – what’s in it?

We look at up-coming innovations in wine packaging and ask which will do most to enhance wine quality, authenticity, drinker experience and retail performance. Which alternative packaging formats will play the biggest part in our wine drinking future? Can tradition be overturned and should it? Cork and bottle have been the norm for a very long time after all. From kegs and cans to whatever comes next – what will we put our wine into tomorrow and will consumer acceptance keep pace?

Four innovators take a look inside the world of packaging and tell us what it can deliver:

  • Can innovation enhance the cork and bottle?
  • How can traditional packaging and mobile technology combine to empower wine brands to connect and engage with consumers in innovative ways?
  • How can you deliver high quality wine in new formats?
  • Does ‘different’ equal ‘good’ – what can new formats and design do to create differentiation and on-shelf stand out?

Then we’ll challenge them to think like consumers – do they really care what their wine comes in? Are they die-hard traditionalists at heart or willing to believe that ‘new’ can be ‘better? How can consumers’ preconceptions (and misconceptions) be overcome? How do their needs differ at the premium end of the market?
