PAC To The Future II, “Retail Reinvented”—organized by PAC Packaging Consortium—is a two-day event in Montreal, September 25-27, 2018, where 200+ attendees will learn, be inspired and connected to industry leaders and decision-makers.

Conference Overview
E-Commerce and Packaging are inextricably connected, so come and learn from the biggest names in retail, brand and packaging at one stage at Pack To The Future II in Montreal.

Is E-Commerce a Brick-And-Mortar Killer…or is it just another value stream to market?

Either way disruption is influencing consumers, retailers (food service, general merchandise and grocery), the entire supply chain and the packaging community. How are these retail channels impacting retailers, brands, logistics, the online buying, delivery and arrival of products vs. the physical in store user experience? What’s more important, speed or amount of packaging? How do we solve the amount of packaging? Learn how it will impact your business.

Is using 100% reusable, recyclable or compostable packaging reachable by 2025 a reality or perception? Eleven leading brands, retailers, and packaging companies have announced they are working towards this goal: Amcor, Ecover, evian, L’Oréal, Mars, M&S, PepsiCo, The Coca-Cola Company, Unilever, Walmart, and Werner & Mertz – together representing more than six million tonnes of plastic packaging per year. This collection of leaders has created an industry tipping point. This is HUGE for all participants. Find out why and what it means for you.

Event Takeaways
Actionable takeaways will come from the event’s international speakers, their thought-provoking presentations, interactive workshops, and fun business networking functions. A great fall day on the golf course will precede the conference on September 25, and enjoy the warmth, Québecois cuisine and joie de vivre in Old Montréal.

The Nitty-Gritty
Join us after the business session on Day 1, for cocktails and dinner, as we enjoy a taste of the fantastic Québecois cuisine in Old Montréal. We will be dining at the Vieux-Port Steakhouse situated directly on St. Paul Street in a beautiful, century-old structure.
