The inaugural Packager Summit got off to a cold but flying start today in Nice, France.
Some 85 delegates are in attendance, representing the creme de la creme of the packaging community.
Running for the next three days in top hotel the Palais de la Mediterranee, the programme includes talks on the packaging market, the impact of technology and what the future holds for packagers and the specialist market in general.
In addition, there will be a number of workshops and social event and the Summit’s final gala dinner will be hosted by Ed Byrne.
On Friday there will also be golf sponsored by Mortgages PLC and quad biking sponsored by Southern Pacific Mortgage Limited.
The Summit also sees the launch of Mortgage Distributor, a new monthly magazine focussing on the distribution market, from the same publishers as Mortgage Strategy.
Patrick Ponsford, publishing director of Mortgage Distributor and Mortgage Strategy, says: “Mortgage Distributor will provide a round up of all the news from this dynamic market.
“Distribution has always been key to success in the mortgage market but now a real balance of power is starting to emerge.
“If 2006 was the year of the new lender, 2007 will surely be the year of the distributor.”
