“We are ready”, says Thomas Dohse, Director of interpack. “All our exhibitors and partners are ready to go, and we look forward to providing the industry with another great trade fair.” interpack 2023 will be held May 4-10, in Düsseldorf, Germany.

From Europe to Asia, from Africa to the Americas to Australia, a total of over 2,700 exhibitors are taking part in interpack 2023, coming from over 60 countries. The top exhibiting nations are Germany, Italy, China, Turkey, India, the Netherlands, the U.S., France, Spain, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. The largest exhibit areas are occupied by key players such as IMA Industrial Machine, Coesia Group, Syntegon Technology, Marchesini Group, Sollich, Duravant, Aasted ApS, MULTIVAC, OPTIMA packaging group, and Ishida Europe Limited.

interpack will feature a record number of exhibitors from the packaging sector. Companies will showcase their products with a focus on packaging materials, packaging supplies, and packaging aids. All common materials and products of the packaging market will be presented, especially in the field of sustainable materials and renewable raw materials. For example, bioplastics that are biodegradable or biobased, such as those made from sugar cane, palm leaves or corn, can be showcased.

The circular economy will be a top issue at interpack, which will showcase sustainable processing and packaging solutions as well as digital services that help to make production processes efficient and sustainable.

When it comes to transformation processes, little can be done without digital technologies. Big data, augmented reality, and remote machine maintenance have long since found their way into assembly shops and machine fleets. For example, the Fraunhofer Institute for Process Engineering and Packaging will provide information on digital training systems based on virtual reality in the VDMA Technology Lounge. And technologies such as Holy Grail 2.0, RFID, NFC, or augmented reality will also increase in the future.

Another topic to be covered at interpack is product safety, one of the core tasks of packaging. The industry is already making an important contribution to reducing food waste. Digital technologies are key in this regard.

The exhibits are complemented by numerous specials such as the Spotlight talks & trends lecture forum with seven theme days, the interpack Start-up Zone, the Co-Packing joint booth, several award ceremonies with exciting packaging innovations, the SAVE FOOD Highlight Route with new approaches in the fight against global food loss and waste as well as the promotion of women at “Women in Packaging” and Late Night during the day in the TV studio.
