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.
