Pentawards say the aim of the event is to explore and reveal the factors shaping the future of the packaging and design industries as brands and creatives adapt to the unprecedented change of the last few years.

The festival will be split into three core sections: Sustainability 2.0, Authentic Inclusivity, and Essential Futures and it will be followed by a Gala Ceremony on 23rd September at the Royal Opera House, where this year’s Pentawards competition winners will be announced. 

Adam Ryan, Head of Pentawards, commented: “We’re really looking forward to hosting our first in-person festival with a host of amazing speakers from across multiple sectors. With such a turbulent two years behind us, we can’t wait to hear from industry leaders on where they see the future of packaging and design going. We’re excited to bring the global design community together to share insight into how creativity is unfolding.”
