Press release | Paris Packaging Week opens applications for its Future Leaders programme that celebrates young innovators across the packaging industry

Programme to celebrate young entrepreneurs and original thinkers in innovation, sustainability and design opens nominations for its second edition.

Paris, 13/06/2024 – Paris Packaging Week, run by international event organiser Easyfairs, has today announced it is looking for its Future Leaders Class of 2025.

The initiative, launched in 2024, is designed to celebrate and support the next generation of innovators, designers, and entrepreneurs in the beauty, personal care, aerosol, drinks, and luxury packaging industry.

After a very successful launch last year, with over 40 applications and 11 Future Leaders picked for the class of 2024, Paris Packaging Week is now searching for a new group of under-30s who are defining the best innovation and fresh thinking in packaging.

The Future Leaders programme aims to give a voice to a new generation of packaging experts. Selected Future Leaders will have the opportunity to talk at Paris Packaging Week, to network with industry leaders, contribute to key industry discussions and the event’s conference agenda, and gain significant exposure within the global packaging community.

The first group of Future Leaders featured entrepreneurs in the sustainability sector, founders of a beauty brand and rising stars in multinational packaging companies and in design agencies. They were chosen by a prestigious selection panel of design and innovation experts.

This program is ideal for young leaders eager to connect with peers and gain inspiration in the packaging industry. With engaging keynote presentations and excellent networking opportunities, I found it the perfect place to learn and connect with industry professionals” says Peipei Yang, Sustainable Sourcing Project Manager at Trivium Packaging and a Future Leader Class of 2024.

Nominees must be working in the packaging sector and must have been born on or after 1 January 1994. Paris Packaging Week is accepting nominations until Friday 9 August, and will release its Class of 2025 in autumn this year.
