Companies in the packaging branch and the related processing sector with ranges for the food, beverage, confectionery, bakery, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, non-food and industrial goods sectors as well as those offering sector-related services can now register online for interpack 2020. Internationally the most important event in the packaging sector and the related process industry, interpack will be held at the Düsseldorf Exhibition Centre from 7 to 13 May 2020. Both exhibitors and visitors can look forward not only to an entirely new Hall 1 and a new Entrance Süd but they can also benefit from an overall clearer hall structure with even more sharply focused segments. This means even shorter distances thereby making for more efficient trade fair visits.
interpack’s unique selling point is its distinctive solutions package and coverage of entire value chains. This includes processes and machinery for the packaging and processing of packaged goods plus packaging media and materials and the manufacturing of packaging aids as well as services for the packaging business. The last edition of interpack in May of this year attracted 2,866 exhibitors and 170,899 visitors from 168 countries and thanks to busy orders from three-quarters of the decision-makers among them made for significant impulses in the sector.
Registration for the supplier trade fair, “components for processing and packaging”, is also now open. The trade fair is being organised for 2020 in line with the tried and tested concept – in parallel with interpack at a central location at the exhibition centre. In terms of exhibitors it is aimed at companies that offer drive, control and sensor technology, products for industrial image processing, handling technology, industrial software and communication as well as complete automation systems for the packaging industry. Furthermore, manufacturers or suppliers of machine parts, components, accessories and peripheral devices as well as components and auxiliaries for packaging media can take part.
