Welcoming Address by the Mayor of the City of Nuremberg
Ladies and Gentlemen,
I am delighted that FachPack, one of Europe’s most important trade fairs for packaging, is taking place in the Franconian city of Nuremberg once again from 25 to 27 September 2018, and I would like to extend a warm welcome to all our German and foreign guests.
Over three packed days, everything will revolve around the latest innovations and current trends in the packaging industry, and new ideas and concrete projects will be created for the future. With an outstanding range of packaging, packaging machines and packaging processes on show, FachPack gives the industry new accents and emphases.
The Exhibition Centre Nuremberg is the perfect venue for this. NürnbergMesse is now one of the top 10 exhibition companies in Europe and among the 15 largest in the world. This not only makes the benchmark-setting FachPack, which is expecting over 1,500 exhibitors spread across 12 halls and more than 40,000 trade visitors, very likely to be a success; it also bodes well for the city of Nuremberg as a whole.
The heart of Nuremberg Metropolitan Region and home to 3.5 million inhabitants, Nuremberg is one of Germany’s 10 largest economic centres, and this economic power is reflected in the high quality of life its residents enjoy. Nuremberg is very liveable from both a residential and a business perspective and offers excellent prospects.
I hope every exhibitor and visitor has an interesting, informative and beneficial time at the exhibition.
If you have time, take a trip into the historic old town too, which has lots worth seeing, and enjoy our Franconian culture and way of life. I wish you a pleasant stay in Nuremberg.
Dr. Ulrich Maly
