BRANDPACKAGING’s packaging conference returned for a tenth year with a focus on a single message: Make It Matter.
On-Demand Packaging Matters™ is MWV’s study of the role of packaging in product satisfaction. In its second iteration, the research has expanded to 10 markets: China, India, Brazil, Russia, Turkey, South Africa, U.K., Germany, Japan and the U.S. We study packaging because it matters to brand owners, retailers and consumers around the world. Packaging impacts shopping behavior, influences product satisfaction and motivates consumers in global markets in different ways.
