Clear Hall Concept at Interpack 2023
To ensure that visitors find everything they are looking for, the fully booked interpack 2023 will feature a hall concept with clear industry focal points.
No other trade show in the industry reflects the global market in all its diversity like interpack. Next year, interpack will once again offer the packaging and related process industry the largest international market overview and will more than live up to its motto “simply unique”. To ensure that visitors do not lose their overview in the 18 exhibition halls, interpack 2023 will feature an ideal hall concept based on the core target groups food, beverage, confectionery and baked goods, pharmaceutical products, cosmetics, non-food and industrial goods.
About 2,700 exhibitors from around the world will be in Düsseldorf, Germany, from May 4 – 10, 2023, to present cutting-edge technologies and packaging trends along the entire value chain, demonstrate opportunities for growth and respond to the challenges of the industry.
Confectionery and baked goods
Visitors will find processes and machines for packaging confectionery and baked goods especially in Halls 1,3 and 4 of interpack. Advice for packaging confectionery can be obtained here from Sollich, Aasted, Theegarten-Pactec, Chocotech, Bühler as well as Winkler and Dünnebier, among many others. The baking sector can look forward to companies such as Hebenstreit, Rheon Automatic Machinery, Colussi Ermes, Tonelli, TT Italy and Reading Bakery System.
As in many other sectors, packaging of confectionery, baked goods, snacks and cereals has experienced a lot of change in recent years. Sustainable solutions are a major topic. Machine manufacturers are adapting their portfolio to mono-material packaging or new materials, for example. In addition, the focus is on digital technologies – as in the entire industry.
Food, beverage, non-food and industrial goods
The food sector is among the top target groups of interpack visitors and this is reflected in the wide range of their presentation. In addition, in the saturated, high-income markets, consumer awareness and behavior are changing towards sustainability, regional products, organic food or fair trade and this also relates to packaging.This, along with the current challenges in energy management and resource conservation, is causing transformation processes in the industry. The same applies to beverage and non-food products, which, like the food sector, will be located in Halls 5 and 6 and 11 to 14. Around 20% of interpack visitors are particularly interested in solutions for industrial goods. This segment will also be located in the same halls.
Starting in hall 5, the focus will be on the food sector and big names like Multivac Sepp Haggenmüller, Ulma Packaging, Weber Maschinenbau and Fuji Machinery. In hall 6, Fawema, Coesia, Syntegon Technology and Duravant will present their innovations in many application areas for processing and packaging.
Halls 11 to 14 will host exhibitors such as Omori Machinery, Mettler-Toledo (hall 11), Extend Great International, Rovema and Haver & Boecker (hall 12), KHS, Krones, Aetna Group, Sidel and ProMach (hall 13) as well as Gerhard Schubert Verpackungsmaschinen, Ishida Europe Limited, Loesch-Hastamat and tna solutions (hall 14). In hall 13, the focus will be on bottling and packaging solutions for the beverage sector.
Pharmaceuticals and cosmetics
In view of the worldwide demographic changes, the development opportunities for the pharmaceutical industry are very good As the demands on drug development grow, those on plant and machine technology in the field of packaging and filling medication are also increasing in parallel. The pharmaceutical companies need universal solutions, and they can find these in halls 15 to 17, which will focus processes and machinery for packaging pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. Visitors can meet IMA Industria Macchine, the Marchesini Group, the Optima packaging group, Romaco Holding, Körber Medipak Systems and companies from Excellence United. The requirements for machines and systems producing pharmaceuticals and cosmetics are by necessity strict concerning product safety, counterfeit protection and traceability. Cosmetic products are also a focus of the sustainability movement.
Packaging materials and packaging
Of central importance for the industry will be halls 7 and 7a, 8a, 9 and 10. This is where about a third of all exhibitors with all the materials and finished packaging products will be located. This cross-user range of packaging, packaging materials and packaging aids is in itself the largest packaging trade show in the world. This also makes interpack unique. All packaging materials will be represented here and there will be many innovations on the subject of sustainability and resource conservation, for example in using new materials, sustainable raw materials or increasing the amount of recyclates used in packaging.
The exhibitors in this area are particularly numerous and international – including Sappi Europe, Sonoco, Mayr Melnhof Packaging, Berry Global, Schütz GmbH, the S.I.T. Group and Seda International Packaging.
Labeling, marking, finishing
Informing, decorating, customizing – packaging carries information. Exhibitors in Halls 8a and 8b will show how this can be implemented for different products and requirements. Machines for labelling and marking technology will be presented for example by Bluhm Systeme, Langguth, Domino Printing Sciences, Videojet Technologies, Herma and Possehl. This range will be completed by solutions from the packaging production and integrated packaging printing sector. This will include companies such as Starlinger, Totani, Fujifilm Europe, the Brückner Group and HP Germany.
“Every part counts” is the motto of components, which will again be held as a separate trade show concurrently with interpack. This is where companies will offer technology for drives, control units and sensors, products for industrial imaging, handling technology, industrial software and communication as well as comprehensive automation systems for the packaging industry. There will also be machine parts, components and equipment, peripheral devices as well as components and aids for packaging. Among the exhibitors will be Pilz, Gimatic, Igus, Voestalpine Edelstahl and Mädler. With the temporary hall 18, located between halls 10 and 16, components is centrally located and interpack visitors and exhibitors will have direct access to the components trade fair and vice versa.
Exhibiting companies can present themselves individually, introduce their interpack contact persons and their product innovations in the exhibitor and product database before the start of the trade fair. The exhibitor and product database is now available at www.interpack.com and is constantly being updated with new information and products.
