Following on from last year’s success, we once again exhibited at SIBA’s BeerX Exhibition which this year was at the Exhibition Centre, Liverpool. Last year Stu and Mike were rushed off their feet and a little tight for space so this year we decided to have a larger stand and to take Adam along too!
“The exhibition was not a disappointment, the atmosphere was great and the venue really complimented the exhibition. It was also great to see so many of our existing customers, and some new faces too!” said Mike, Sales Director for Saxon Packaging.
The exhibition was held on the Wednesday and Thursday afternoon, with the SIBA Business Awards on the Wednesday evening and the SIBA Independent Beer Awards on the Thursday evening.
We were very proud sponsors of the BeerX Can and Bottle Bar and also of the Small Pack Premium Lager & Pilsners award which Calvors Brewery (pictured below with Adam) were the proud winners of – congratulations!
Unfortunately we didn’t win the ‘Supplier Associate of the Year’ award this year (previously won in 2016) but are very proud to achieve ‘Finalist’ and congratulate fellow supplier associate member Lemon Top on winning the award – well deserved.
On the stand we decided to engage visitors not only with our eye catching packaging solutions we had on display but with a ‘guess the bottle crowns’ game which went down brilliantly. We also had a fridge full of beer and a Saxon goody bag for all our stand visitors as well as Fruit Salad and Black Jack sweets that seemed to bring back childhood memories for most!
“This year’s exhibition exceeded our expectations, we were rushed off our feet discussing all things packaging in the most enjoyable and relaxed environment” said Stu, Business Development Manager for Saxon Packaging.
With an ever growing SIBA customer base, we are very proud of the beer packaging solutions we manufacture for the brewing industry and look forward to providing services to even more SIBA members in the future. As a fellow member of SIBA we are able to offer great packaging rates and tried & tested packaging solutions including gift packs, mail-order and transit packs.
