Hotelympia – beat the tube strike with Jubilee & DLR!

Hello there,

We’re at Hotelympia! There may be a partial tube strike but the Jubilee, DLR, buses and many lines are still running – info below. Plus see below for important dates for May bank holidays.

1. Visit us at Hotelympia – Jubilee & DLR still running! 

Today and tomorrow, although there’s a tube strike, the Jubilee and DLR and many other lines are still running. Extra buses are on too. Here’s full info and a map showing what IS running. Plan your journey on www.tfl.gov.uk. Everything is back to normal on Thursday, the last show day.

Here’s some pictures of our first day! Claudia had fun designing cups for people, and everyone loves our huge colourful stand with the grass carpet. Come down to ExCel to meet Joe, Dominic, Teresa, Mark, Evan, Sarah, Joanna, Claudia, Abi, Helen and I. Here’s all our mugshots so you’ll recognise us!

Special Hotelympia offer – no £150 print plate charge for any cups we design during the show. And sit down with Claudia at our Custom Print Cafe to design your own cup, for free.

We’re showing off our innovations for hot and cold food, including our PLA wine goblet and the world’s first compostable 6oz cup and lid combo, both of which are up for the Hotelympia innovation awards. Find out how we go beyond packaging with free added value services like Eco Audits, creative consultancy and zero waste support.

On Thursday at 2pm, I (Lucy) will be at WasteWorks, taking part in a Footprint Forum panel debate: Circular Economy – Innovation or Imagination? Come along and join the discussion!

Register for free entry to Hotelympia.

Look out for the fake grass, friendly faces, giant tree and huge Vegware banner! Our colourful stand is in the Food and Drinks section, just by all the beer taps for the Craft Beer Takeover. See you there? Stand 4257 🙂

 

2. May bank holidays – a reminder

3. And finally…watch our film!

All About Vegware tells the story of Vegware – how it all started with a spoon. See our eco packaging go from canteen to compost, and hear MD Joe Frankel’s thoughts on our global growth story. Enjoy!

Whilst you’re on www.youtube.com/vegware, check out our favourites. And watch this space – more films coming soon…

 

That’s all for now – hope to see you at Hotelympia!
