Just over a year from now, it will once again be time for the European packaging sector to meet in Nuremberg, Germany, where they can discuss the latest trends and developments in the packaging market and develop solutions for the entire sector. A year before the next event cycle, FachPack’s organisers claim to have already made the event fresher, stronger and to have given to it a higher profile with its new brand identity “Tomorrow begins when you create it”. A new assortment and grouping of the products and services on offer is expected to create clarity and will help exhibitors and visitors find their way around. FachPack covers trending topics in the sector, creates fresh momentum, encourages discussion all year long, and ultimately presents tangible solutions by and for the packaging industry in a compact three-day exhibition from 25 to 27 September 2018.

 “We have been in the midst of the acquisition phase for a few of weeks now and it is going so well that the 12 exhibition halls will very likely be almost completely booked up by the year’s end,” Heike Slotta, executive director for FachPack, is pleased to note. “We will already be bringing up relevant trends, such as digitalisation, Industry 4.0, automation and changes in consumer and user behaviour, in the run-up to exhibition preparations and integrating them into the supporting programme at the exhibition,” Slotta announced.

The most important areas of packaging and technology will be showcased even more clearly in 2018, something that is reflected in the new floor plan and continues in the supporting programme: Both the reorganisation into the two large exhibition areas and a focal point in each hall will ensure greater clarity and help exhibitors and visitors find their way around.
