The stand will showcase the ground-breaking innovations on which Ball’s reputation is built, including its unique Strawster™ can, distinctive aluminium bottles and Dynamark® variable printing. Visitors will learn how to maximize the design impact of cans using special print effects, and find out about Ball’s world-class graphic and design centre capabilities. Ball will showcase its extended range of can sizes, including brand new sizes such as the 90-centiliter King can, 25-centiliter Sleek can and the 45-centiliter Super Sleek can – all displayed on the one-of-a-kind ‘Can-Shi bar’.
Each day, Ball also will be hosting ‘Happy Hour’ events, which will focus on beverage categories including craft beer, water, juice, tea and coffee. Discussing recent successful case studies such as Garden Brewery and SKIWATER, the events are aimed at those wishing to launch their beverage in cans, or add cans to their existing packaging mix. The sustainability and infinite recyclability of the can also will be highlighted.
Marketing Director Ana Neale said: “We are very excited about our presence at Drinktec this year. Drinktec gives us the perfect opportunity to showcase our entire product range, to demonstrate the sustainability of the can, and to feature our innovative technologies. We very much look forward to discussing with potential customers about how cans will help grow their brands”.
Held in Munich from the 11th-15th of September, Drinktec is the leading world fair for the beverage and liquid food industry. To visit Ball at Drinktec, please find them at stand 348, Hall A1.
