Interested companies of the packaging and processing sector in the fields of food, beverages, confectionery, bakery products, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, non-food consumer goods, industrial goods and associated services can register as of now for interpack 2017. The international flagship trade fair of the packaging sector and related processing industries will be taking place at Düsseldorf's exhibition grounds from 4 to 10 May 2017. interpack is a platform for complete value chains, encompassing processes and machines for the packaging and processing of packaged products as well as packaging materials, packaging means and their production, and finally services to the packaging industry.
What makes interpack special is its unique array of exhibits and the peerless internationality of its exhibitors and visitors. The last interpack in May 2014 attracted some 175,000 experts, 84 per cent of whom reported being involved in decision-making processes in their respective companies. The overall verdict of the surveyed visitors was excellent, with 97 per cent of them saying they would recommend the trade fair. Of the exhibitors, 83 per cent stated that they had acquired new customers.
It is possible to register for interpack 2017 online at www.interpack.com/1330. Companies who took part in interpack 2014 can retrieve their existing details. The official closing date is 29 February 2016.
Parallel event: "components"
Following its premiere in 2014, "components for processing and packaging" for suppliers to the packaging industry is taking place with an overhauled concept in a central location at interpack. "components" is targeted at exhibiting companies that supply drive, control and sensor equipment, products for industrial image processing, handling equipment, industrial software and communication, and complete automation systems for packaging machines. Also eligible to take part are manufacturers and suppliers of machine parts, subassemblies, accessories and peripheral equipment as well as those of components and auxiliary materials for packaging means. There are no longer any constraints on company stand design, unlike in 2014 when only a selection of system stands was available. Registration within the same period as for interpack is possible at www.packaging-components.com.
To mark the start of registration, interpack is consistently continuing its strategy, launched at the last staging of the fair, of addressing specific target groups. Under its main claim "We innovative", the focus in communication via all channels is on stories of companies in the eight core target groups. Films about these "innovative eight" form the centrepiece of the communication campaign.
This approach can also be found in the printed check-in magazine that potential exhibitors receive at the start of registration. Furthermore, all the films can be viewed not only on interpack's YouTube channel, but also at the totally revamped website www.interpack.com. This now also has a responsive design for optimised display on mobile devices.
