Interpack 2023: Event is 85% capacity 18 months ahead of the show in May 2023
24 August 2024: Organisers of Interpack packaging and processing event in Dusseldorf, Germany, have confirmed that the event is already 85% capacity over 18 months ahead of the show in May 2023. Together with fresh bookings, the international event, which has proved an influential signpost for significant technological development across industry including the confectionery and bakery segments, is nearing full operating capacity well ahead of schedule for 2023.
“We’re really excited by how enthusiastically our customers have taken up this offer. We’re hearing that you can hardly wait until interpack is back on again – as an in-person trade fair where you can meet face-to-face”, reports Thomas Dohse, Project Director for interpack.
According to feedback from the industry, the pandemic showed that digital alternative events were seen as a plus that provided added value, but meeting in person at a trade fair is irreplaceable in terms of generating new contacts and building trust, which is massively important. In addition, many companies demonstrate technically complex machinery and systems at interpack and these need detailed explanation and are often appraised while in operation by potential customers at interpack.
“The uniqueness of interpack is primarily characterised by the unparalleled diversity of the products and services that our exhibitors offer, but it is rounded out by our special themes that pick up on the trends for the coming years. In 2023, sustainability and all of its facets will be even more significant than it has been in years past, which means that we will be tackling this set of themes in cooperation with our partners. In addition to these impressive in-person offers, there will also be digital offers”, adds Thomas Dohse.
