10th Metpack a global meeting place of the metal packaging industry

Registration deadline for exhibitors ends on 31 May 2019

Metpack 2017.

The future of packaging is the subject of heated discussions all over the world. The industry is curious about what innovations in the field of metal packaging will be presented at Messe Essen from 5-9 May 2020, at the tenth edition of Metpack.

Every three years, the world’s leading fair draws top-class exhibitors into the Ruhr metropolis. They use the trade fair to introduce their innovations for the manufacture, refinement and recycling of metal packaging to an international trade public. Until 31 May 2019, any interested parties can book stands at the most important sectoral event of the year. In addition, registered companies have the possibility of taking part in the Metpack Innovation Award.

On the occasion of Metpack in 2017, around 90% of the exhibitors stated that they would again participate in the next edition. A quarter of them are even planning to extend their stand areas for Metpack 2020. “The figures speak for themselves. Metpack is on course for success. It is the most important fair dedicated exclusively to packaging made of metal. Nowhere else do the manufacturers of metal packaging machines encounter their target groups in such an exactly fitting way,” said Christina Kleinpaß, head of project for Metpack. “The global players have already registered. These include, for example, ArcelorMittal, CanMan, CMC Kuhnke, Gebr. Leonhard, Hinterkopf, Lanico, Roeslein, Salchi Metalcoat and Tata Steel,” added Kleinpaß.

Stands can be registered until 31 May 2019 and interested companies can find detailed information and registration documents at www.metpack.de.

Metpack Innovation Award

Metpack is also the platform for the presentation of the Metpack Innovation Award. All the exhibitors are invited to submit their innovations introduced at the fair and to have them assessed by a jury of experts. The winners in the Gold, Silver and Bronze categories will be announced on 6 May. The Metpack Innovation Award is regarded as a worldwide seal of quality for innovative metal packaging technology and is the only one of its kind.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
