During the session, the Packaging Cluster presented the 10 most relevant trends for the kid's sector out of the 23 that they have detected in their study “The packaging of the future”. The innovations presented by Àlex Brossa, director of the packaging cluster, fall within the three major macro-trends: sustainability, experience and safety. The attendees have been able to delve into the reflections and opportunities that awaken trends such as the reduction of plastics, rightsizing, the zero waste movement, minimalism, interactive packaging, gamified packaging, vintage 2.0 style, personalization, packaging for e-commerce , and digitization to improve forecasting, sourcing and rapid production.

In a dialogue between Anna López, director of KID’S CLUSTER, and Sentinel's expert team, attendees have been able to demystify some of the most deeply rooted beliefs around materials, sustainability and the user experience of packaging. The Sentinel team has clarified the different alternatives that exist to plastic and plasticized materials and has given keys and advice on how to approach the packaging strategy to create more sustainable designs that improve the user experience and, above all, that are aligned with business goals.
