interpack to celebrate its 50th anniversary
Apr '08
From 24 to 30 April 2008, the international packaging industry will get together in Düsseldorf at the biggest interpack event ever staged – that much is already certain from the current level of registrations. Exhibitors and visitors will benefit from the additional floor space in the new Hall 8b. Spread across 19 halls, interpack will fill the Düsseldorf Trade Fair Center to capacity.

Launched in 1958, interpack will celebrate its 50th anniversary with a fair of superlatives. A new record in terms of participations is also expected – based on current assessments, the figures promise to top the highly successful interpack 2005 performance.

“The interpack 2008 concept responds to the needs of a market which is at present developing very positively. This is evident not only in the increased size of traditional exhibitors' stands but also in the large number of companies that will be making their first appearance at interpack,” commented Wilhelm Niedergöker, Managing Director of Messe Düsseldorf.

On the industry's pulse
Over interpack's seven-day run, visitors will not only have the full encyclopaedia of the latest processes and packaging trends in such segments as foods and beverages, confectionery and baked goods, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics, non-food consumer goods as well as industrial goods laid out before them, but also have opportunities to forge new contacts in the sector.

As the world's No. 1 packaging fair, interpack 2008 will showcase innovations for every link in the value chain. In this way, interpack offers those looking for solutions to contemporary packaging challenges or an innovative edge a complete package that's unmatched by any other event.
