Interpack 2017 is recording the highest demand among exhibitors in its history of over 55 years. By the official closing date of this international event for the packaging industry and related processing industries, exhibitors had booked about 20% more space than was available at the exhibition centre with its 262,400m2 in 19 halls.
Around 2,700 exhibitors can therefore be expected again from May 4-10, 2017, coming from about 60 different countries.
Save Food will play a role at interpack 2017. A special show called innovationparc will be held, with packaging ideas and solutions designed to reduce food losses and waste. interpack is a unique platform for businesses offering products and solutions in packaging technology and related processes as well as packaging media and materials for the various segments of this industry: food, beverages, confectionery and baked goods, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, non-food consumer goods and industrial goods. The products and services presented here will be supplemented by several specialist areas.
Working together with the German Engineering Federation (VDMA), interpack 2017 will put the focus on Industry 4.0, in particular. The special show will take the form of a technology lounge at the VDMA stand, featuring examples of solutions in packaging machinery and process engineering and opening up new opportunities for applications in security, traceability, copying and counterfeit protection as well as in customised packaging.
