About 44,000 trade visitors took the opportunity to learn about innovations and trends in the packaging sector from the 1,591 exhibitors in attendance at FachPack, which took place in Nuremberg from September 24th to 26th. The event attracted a much larger number of visitors from outside Germany than in years past, just one way that FachPack is living up to its reputation as the leading European trade fair for packaging, processes and technology.
The first-ever key theme to be chosen, environmentally friendly packaging, was right on trend and was a thread running through the 12 exhibition halls and the supporting programme. Attendees eagerly used the chance to network and discuss the best packaging options at the exhibition booths, forums and special shows. The German Packaging Award and the Sustainability Awards honoured particularly innovative solutions at FachPack 2019.
