We create the future is the new slogan of FACHPACK, which also runs through the extensive supporting programme. Trends are picked up here, impulses for new ideas are created in dialogue and invite to join in.
FACHPACK will also transfer its reach to the digital world. This means specifically that presentations at the exhibition will be streamed onto the Internet, where they can also be accessed afterwards.
We GUIDE THE WAY
Environmentally friendly packaging is still a hot topic, which FACHPACK will also address in 2021. We are all encouraged to rethink materials, technology and processes. FACHPACK is the ideal platform to present best-practice solutions for environmentally friendly packaging solutions in a media-effective way and to bring them positively into the public discussion. Whether recycled or recyclable packaging, resource-saving materials, reusable packaging and systems as well as environmentally friendly processes. Visitors can draw inspiration from the exhibitors' sustainable solutions for the key theme of "environmentally friendly packaging".
Find out what was presented on the key theme in 2019. Be curious what the packaging industry has to offer in 2021.
