FACHPACK 2024 is the central and most important meeting place in Europe for the packaging industry and its users this year. It will take place from Tuesday to Thursday, 24 to 26 September, at the Nuremberg Exhibition Center. The leading theme of the trade fair, “Transition in Packaging”, provides a compact yet comprehensive insight into all relevant topics in the packaging industry. Therefore, FACHPACK is important both to those who want to establish and further develop business relationships and to those who want to find their bearings and get new impetus from the market.

Sustainability as a Common Thread

One topic that is certainly on companies’ minds is the EU Packaging and Packaging Waste Regulation (PPWR), which was passed in Brussels at the end of April. On this too, FACHPACK will provide answers to questions such as recyclability, reusability, and the use of recyclates in packaging materials. The topics of environmentally friendly packaging and the circular economy are a recurring theme in the packaging industry and, therefore, also at FACHPACK 2024. Entrepreneur Ute Zimmermann from Vienna, who runs the packaging company Naku, is one of the 1,400 exhibitors: “The growing emphasis on sustainability suits us very well. It’s a great opportunity to present our sustainable products to a broad audience.”

Heike Slotta, Executive Director Exhibitions at NürnbergMesse, sums it up as follows: “There’s simply no getting around FACHPACK in the packaging industry. Being there is everything! As the most important European trade fair, it brings together national and international packaging professionals and idea seekers in a total of eleven exhibition halls with well-known market leaders, established SMEs and fresh start-ups. Not only packaging materials, packaging aids, packaging machines, and packaging technology are exhibited. The associated important processes relating to automation, labeling technology, packaging printing, finishing, and intralogistics can also be experienced on site in Nuremberg.”

Exhibitors will be showcasing the latest technologies and innovative packaging solutions for numerous industries and sectors – from A for automotive to W for wood pulp.

FACHPACK Offers Accompanying Program

The topics of the packaging industry and its users will be addressed not only at the exhibition stands, but also in the diverse accompanying program of FACHPACK with its exciting presentations and discussions in the PACKBOX, INNOVATIONBOX, and, for the first time, SOLPACK (powered by pacoon) forums. Inspiring special shows and award ceremonies, such as the presentation of the German Packaging Award to the winners at FACHPACK, will also focus on sustainability and the future viability of the industry. In addition to sustainability and regulations, the forums will focus on brand and consumer behavior, automation and AI, human and machine, alternative packaging solutions, and new fiber raw materials, as well as innovations and technological developments. Scientific projects and solutions for various industry topics will also be presented.

Preparations for your FACHPACK visit in September can now begin. The ticket store for visitors is already open and vouchers can be redeemed.
