All Guild members are invited to our AGM, taking place on 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 beforehand 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. This event is free of charge to members.
We have a great line up of speakers: Nanna Guldbaek, Art Director for Lervig; Pete Statham, Sustainability Director at Carlsberg, Al Porter, Brand Manager at Carlsberg, Myles Pinfold, Founder of WPA Pinfold brand design agency; Bob Trimm, Sales & Marketing Manager for Harvey’s Brewery and Joe Baldwin, Project 7 Business Development Manager from Stewart Brewery/
Members are welcome to join us for the seminar – starting at 3.30 – and the AGM, or for either event.
All members of the Guild are welcome to attend and hear from the Guild’s Board on achievements over the past year and plans for the future, meet fellow Guild members and network over a beer and refreshments. All FULL members are entitled to vote at the AGM, Associate and Corporate members are welcome to join us, but may not vote.
