STORA ENSO RECREATE PACKAGING AWARD CEREMONY
WESTIN PALACE

 

The celebration of the Recreate Packaging Awards 2018 was an entertaining evening with lots of great design,
food and drink in good company!

The gala took place at Westin Palace, an elegant hotel steeped in history.
Located opposite the Spanish Parliament, the Palace was built at the initiative of King Alfonso XIII
to accommodate travellers at the turn of the century. After several refurbishments and
respecting its Belle Époque essence, the building has now been declared a Site of Cultural Interest.
