A can for all occasions
In the UK, it’s not long until we see the wedding of the year take place, where Prince Harry marries Meghan Markle. When such an auspicious occasion arises, one of my favourite pastimes is seeing the amount of unusual memorabilia available to mark the occasion.
Now I’m not mocking this niche segment, not at all; and I would certainly deem myself more royalist, than republican, but I do question those wanting to purchase a commemorative golden £5 coin for £1,200, or some royal china, that will never see the light of day.
However, for the discerning can connoisseurs, there is a real mixture of speciality cans for the occasion. The confectionery trade seems to be leading the way, with McVitie’s, Milly Green and Nestle amongst others ensuring that the day can be celebrated with a can – the best way!
For our UK readers, have you seen any efforts from can makers that have caught your eye? If so, we’d love to showcase the most eye-catching. And who knows, in a few years the can may be a collectable…
On the events front, we’re delighted to formally announce the dates for next year’s CanTech- The Grand Tour in Istanbul. The trade show will take place from 25-27 March 2019; we hope you like our choice of location.
There will also be a couple of announcements with regard to Asia CanTech very soon, so please watch this space…
