Naturally we apologise for the inclusion of the beer and logos in the picture illustrating this story, which may make it look interesting to some people. Hi-Cone is actually responsible for the plastic bits that hold six-packs of drinks together - which is a pretty dull thing to be doing we reckon.
What's on at Boring
The conference will have many speakers and break-out sessions. The subjects will include "Extracts from the first ten years of Which? Magazine", "Electric hand driers" and "Polite small talk".
The event will take place on 19 November at York Hall in East London, from 10.30 until 6pm. At the same time Hi-Cone is hosting an exhibition at the Science Museum on "Hidden Heroes", the idea being to celebrate small artefacts of technology which make a difference to our lives but which are a bit unsung.
