Barny Macaulay, founder of The Future of Luxury, and creative director at The Barn, will be exploring the significance of the human senses – ‘Can’t touch, can’t feel, can’t smell: The importance of packaging in engaging an online audience’.

Judy Deuchar, ex-VP merchandising & planning at QVC UK, now founder of The Clifton Studio, an innovative global business strategy consultancy, will draw on her global brand experience when it comes to ‘Packaging – the expression of your story’.

Everything is here and it is easy to get to in London, the heart of design and innovation.”
