An industry ready to digitise
It’s a pleasure to welcome you to The Metal Packager – the essential resource for metal packaging professionals.
In just three weeks we’ve had content viewed from over 70 countries worldwide, and over 6,000 page views on our website. This appetite from the industry has surpassed our expectations, so thank you for viewing The Metal Packager.
As an industry, metal packaging has frequently been labelled as a conservative industry – from how we consume media, network and conduct business, it’s been labelled that we’re all creatures of habit. This may well be true, but the Covid-19 pandemic has pushed many kicking and screaming into the 21st century when it comes to digital consumption habits.
As humans we now consume our news and media differently – we scroll, we listen, we tweet, we share – and at The Metal Packager, we’re here to fuse the warm traditions cemented from this industry’s efficiency in providing billions of cans to people globally, and these new modern forms of communications.
This is why as a business we’re pushing the boundaries as a trade media resource – we’re bringing you multiple news stories a day, podcasts, text news alerts for subscribers and utilising our expertise in social media, to bring you all the essential news stories, quicker and more efficiently than ever before.
That’s not to say face-to-face networking will become extinct – to the contrary. It’s our editorial view that it’ll become ever more important as we all look for quality not quantity from our physical meetings and trade show attendance. However, we believe the demand for an ever-evolving news and content service will become more important – and we’ll be there every step of the way to keep you informed.
Whether if you’re working from home, at a manufacturing facility, or travelling for business, the Metal Packager will endeavour to bring you the latest content.
We look forward to being part of your journey as metal packaging professionals.
With warmest regards
Alex Fordham, Managing Director, The Metal Packager
