The Storytellers




   



PAC TO THE FUTURE II, “RETAIL REINVENTED” is a two day event where 200+ attendees will learn, be inspired and connected to industry leaders and decision-makers.

The Conference Overview
E-Commerce and Packaging are inextricably connected. Learn from the biggest names in retail, brand and packaging on one stage

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...reality or perception?
11 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 6 million tonnes of plastic packaging per year. This collection of leaders has created an industry tipping point. This is HUGE for all participants.

What will you and your company get out of this important industry event?
Actionable takeaways will come from our 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 conference is hosted in Montréal,
the Most European city in the world outside of Europe.
