Upakovka/Upak Italia-2008

All the experts are convinced that the positive development of the Russian market for packaging will last for years to come. The country's economy continues to grow as does the consumerism of its people. Demand for higher quality products and the packaging to match is unabated. This goes especially for food and beverages, confectionery, bakery products, cosmetics as well as non-food consumer goods. Domestic packaging manufacturers are responding to the rising demands on their products with extensive upgrades and expansions to their capacities. All in all, a favourable backdrop to Upakovka/Upak Italia-2008 to be staged in Moscow from 29 January to 1 February.

The leading Russian packaging technology fair will feature 300 international exhibitors showcasing their latest offerings in machinery and equipment for the manufacture of packaging machinery, confectionery machinery as well as packaging, packaging aids and logistics.

The total exhibition space in the hall complex 2/1 to 2/3 of the ZAO Expocentr in Krasnaya Presnya, Moscow, will cover a net area of 7, 500 square metres. About two thirds will be occupied by companies based outside Russia. The traditionally large German and Italian contingents will be joined by official country participations from Austria, China, the Czech Republic, France, Taiwan and the UK.

Opening for the 16th time already in Moscow, Upakovka/Upak Italia is organised by Messe Düsseldorf in cooperation with its Russian subsidiary OOO Messe Düsseldorf Moscow and the Italian events company Centrexpo. The exhibitors' presentations will be rounded out by a high-calibre ancillary programme including a technology forum conceived especially for students, business meetings and workshops organised by international associations and institutions, plus demonstrations of innovative packaging solutions by exhibiting companies.
