The Guild’s AGM is now set for Tuesday 25 June, from 6.30 – 8.30 pm.  It will be held at The George, 77 Borough High St, London SE1 1NH [with thanks to Greene King for generously providing venue and beer.

This year, we are holding an additional event for our members before our AGM – a seminar entitled ‘Mould breakers – Standing out in a crowded market, from design to sustainability’. We know that first impressions count, especially when choosing from a selection we’ve never seen before. But beer has led the way in bringing a fresh aesthetic to drinks packaging. Where does the inspiration come from? How and why does it matter?  How can breweries turn a rebrand to their advantage? And how important is sustainability when it comes to packaging? We hear from some of the most creative minds in the business.

Members are welcome to join us for the seminar – starting at 3.30 – and the AGM, or for either event.
