Industry Relevance

FachPack has a long history and been instrumental as an engine of innovation, shaping packaging in crucial ways. The very first edition took place in 1979 and the exhibition has grown a lot since then. Things have changed a lot and editions no longer attract just 80 exhibitors and 2000 visitors to Messe Nuremberg. Now FachPack commands large crowds and serves as the definitive meeting point for manufacturers, supplies, experts and buyers. With a strong support programme and the full value chain on display, FachPack is the powerhouse event professionals passionately expect every single year. 

FachPack covers every relevant product category. Across 7 halls, trade visitors experience what’s new in packaging materials and supplies; packaging auxiliaries; filling and packaging machinery; labelling, marking and identification technology; peripheral packaging machinery and equipment; packaging printing and finishing, palletising technology; intralogistics; services for the packaging industry.

The exhibition continues to evolve and meet the industry where it’s at and where it’s headed. The newest addition to the event’s format is the Transition In Packaging By Design special show. The main goal of the show is to sit down and rethink the current state of the industry and how to build a better future. The technology and solutions presented address issues about material shortages, ecological issues and customer retention.

Who Are You Going to Meet?

The answer to this question is broad and complex, because FachPack is not just one thing. As a European Trade Fair, the show serves as a valuable meeting point between players on the territory of the continent with a strong emphasis on members of the European Union. At the same time, this is a national market, which functions as an engine for development and evolution within Germany. Another thing to register is the fact that FachPack runs in tandem with LOGINTERN and PRINT PACK, which means you’ll be seeing professionals from related industries at every level. Packaging itself is essential for most industries, which is why visitors represent businesses from the food and beverage, pharmaceutical and medical technology, cosmetics and chemicals, and the automotive industries.

Additional Value of Attending 

Three forums complement the exhibition portion of the event and maximise value of attendance. These are PACKBOX, TECHBOX and INNOVATIONBOX. Each forum offers opportunities for experts and innovative companies to step into the spotlight to share their expertise and ideas. The INNOVATIONBOX presents exhibitors another opportunity to capture the attention of the bigger audience with 30-minute presentations about their groundbreaking products. 

TECHBOX invites experts and industry leaders to discuss what’s happening on the technological side of the industry. What is the innovation & climate strategy going to look like? What will the new business models in packaging and mechanical engineering be? How can you attract and secure skilled workers? And most of all how do we harness the power of digitalisation? PACKBOX looks at the broader conversations in the packaging industry - market experience & market expectation, sustainable design & material, packaging digital & smart.

With so much going on, FackPack can be utterly overwhelming and that’s why there’s the digital platform myFACHPACK to help save the day. This application is your handy tool to make the most out of your visit. You can easily access select content streamed to the app, follow the day’s agenda, access the hall plan, search visitors and exhibitors, and schedule appointments.
