Fachpack is melting pot for new ideas

"It finally feels like a normal trade fair again!" That was the consensus among exhibitors and visitors at this year's Fachpack, which has just closed following a successful three-day event. About 32,000 trade visitors, about one-third from outside Germany, took advantage of the opportunity to learn about the latest trends and innovations at the stands run by the 1,154 exhibitors, and to discuss pressing packaging issues with the experts.

This year's key theme, "Transition In Packaging", captured the spirit of the times. Almost a quarter of those attending said they were interested in the products and services at the Leading Trade Fair for Powder & Bulk Solids Processing and Analysis. Fachpack will take its normal scheduled break in 2023 and will return again in 2024.

Visitors from about 90 countries
Fachpack covered a comprehensive range of products from the entire packaging process chain, from packaging materials and machines to printing and processing, logistics systems and services. Visitors to Fachpack travelled to Nuremberg from 89 countries, mainly in Europe. After Germany, the highest numbers of visitors came from Austria, Italy, Poland, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Czech Republic, France, Turkey and Slovenia. The international contingent this year grew to about 32 percent, compared to 29 percent in 2021.

Industry professionals: 85 percent decision-makers
The results of a visitor survey by an independent institute confirmed that more than 90 percent of the trade visitors were happy or very happy with the products and services in the exhibition halls. Eighty-five percent of the trade visitors said they were involved in making the purchasing and procurement decisions in their respective businesses. More than half had a management position. The visitors came mainly from the food and beverage, pharmaceutical and medical, cosmetics, chemical, electronics and automotive, retail, packaging and logistics industries.

German Packaging Award and Gold Awards presented
On the first day of Fachpack, the German Packaging Institute (dvi) announced the winners of the Gold Awards for this year's German Packaging Award. The six best innovations for 2022 came from the categories of Economic Efficiency, Sustainability, Digitalization, Packaging Machines and Young Talents. Also celebrated were 32 innovative solutions that were recognized with the German Packaging Award in August.

Fachpack will take its normal scheduled break in 2023 and will be held again at the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg from 24 to 26 September 2024.
