Calling all suppliers....

9th June 2016

The SPA Conference on 20th June will be of special interest to our Supplier Members as it is the last Conference prior to the eagerly awaited UK Corrugated Industry Trade Show 2016 (a much larger Show than in previous years)


We will also be engaging with our valued Supplier Members in a Supplier Members' Forum. The aim of the forum is to fully explain the format and scale of the forthcoming UK Corrugated Industry Trade Show on 20th & 21st  September. This eagerly awaited event is at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole at the NEC and offers the Trade Show bigger and better facilities than previous shows.

The Supplier Members' Forum will explain the exhibition hall layout and facilities for 3 phase power, lighting, stand size and complexity etc. We encourage all Supplier Members to attend Conference on the 20th June to ensure they get maximum benefit from the Show.


We will also be presenting the SPA Supplier of the Year Award... So please be in attendance, as it may be your company that picks up one of the many Awards.

Also with Conference just a few days before the Referendum on Membership of the EU - we will be debating 'Brexit or not'... There will be speakers in favour and against Brexit and the opportunity for questions from the floor. We will also conduct an Exit Poll and see how 'representative' SPA members are to the country as a whole.... It should be a lively debate that will naturally be entertaining but with serious undertones.... 



The full Conference Agenda will be published nearer the time, but the topics will include -

Macro Economic Outlook Report
Market Update for the Corrugated Industry
Brexit Debate
R&D Tax Credits - Update
SPA Survey Results
Employment Law Update
UK Corrugated Industry Trade Show - Update
Supplier of the Year Award
Booze Cruise down the River Avon
