REELbrands have launched a new media channel called The REELdebate!
Hosted by our CEO Ian Bates and COO Chris McNeill, The REELdebate is viewable on You Tube. Each episode will last about 30 minutes and welcome guests not just from the packaging world, but from many walks of life, with topics that vary from educational to inspirational.
We look to bust packaging myths, creating transparency in our industry, awaken you with discussions on front line innovation and motivate you with amazing people.
For anyone who is fed up with confusing packaging terminology and baffling misinformation, The REELdebate will help you unravel what’s real (excuse the pun!).
The REELdebate’s are released on Fridays, meaning you can relax and watch in your own time over the weekend. We’ll candidly discuss packaging issues faced by consumers, retailers, packaging suppliers and brands. You are also welcome to leave comments and questions for later debate.
In the latest episode of The REELdebate, we take a look at the print & packaging sector and the current challenges and opportunities facing this rapidly changing sector. We discuss the impact of BREXIT, COVID, new emerging technologies and how manufacturers are adapting to the new landscape.
