The packaging industry is a key economic factor in the world economy with production volume estimated at somewhere around €400bn. There is a clear indication that interpack will play a central role for this sector in 2005 and also in the future.
No other trade fair offers such a panoramic overview of the latest trends and emerging developments as interpack, which opens its doors to the world of packaging, as always in Düsseldorf, from April 21-27, 2005. The debut event was staged in 1958, and the fair has continued to evolve steadily ever since.
Despite technological advancements such as e-mail, the internet and high-speed data transmission across the globe, a trade fair is irreplaceable, offering the very best opportunity to gather in-depth information, meet and talk to experts, find tailored solutions to specific challenges and get up to speed on the latest market data and trends.
This is what interpack offers visitors, and it is unparalleled by any other packaging industry trade fair worldwide.
interpack has never been bigger. Despite still cloudy economic skies in some parts of the world, all available exhibition halls at the Düsseldorf Trade Fair Centre were already fully booked again by the closing date for registrations in early 2004. That means 18 clearly structured halls brimming with innovations in packaging machinery, packaging and confectionery machinery. interpack 2005 is open daily from 10.00am to 6.00pm.
