"Transition in packaging"  

Key theme 2024 

FACHPACK perceives itself as a guide, and aims to offer direction to the sector. The new key theme for 2024 is therefore devoted to the powerful trends currently impacting on the packaging industry.

Sustainability is demanded not only by law but also by consumers – and that is making far-reaching changes to the industry. Subjects such as the circular economy, digitalization and e-commerce add to the mix.

The Transition in Packaging special show at FACHPACK

Special show on the topic of transition in packaging

With its special shows, FACHPACK sets new impulses, offers inspiration and shows perspectives. Current industry trends and future topics are in the foreground. Analogous to the main theme, the special show sheds special light on opportunities that arise in packaging design as a result of social change processes. The redesign of existing packaging needs involves new thinking, new action and clear communication. Designers understand the task of redesign as a playing field for aesthetics and sustainability with the opportunity for profound changes. In doing so, they rely on design innovation as well as technical and communicative innovation to help companies be part of this change and use it for their own brand.
