Fair interpack 2023

The next interpack will be held in Düsseldorf from May 7 to 13, 2026.

It lived up to its promise and exceeded exhibitors' expectations: The world's largest and most important packaging trade show once again set standards from May 4 to 10, networked the industry on a global level, and was both a marketplace and a content hub. Visitors from 155 countries, many of them with firm investment intentions, came to interpack 2023. 2,807 exhibitors presented the power and creativity of the packaging industry with their technologies and solutions. What remains are numerous impulses, ideas and concrete business deals that will be implemented in the coming years.

Sustainable packaging technologies 

Sustainability in all its facets was the absolute top topic at interpack. Exhibitors presented high-end technologies and holistic concepts that take efficiency and sustainability into account along the entire production line. "Many companies in the consumer goods industry have set their own sustainability goals," said Richard Clemens, Managing Director of VDMA Food Processing and Packaging Machinery at interpack. "In recent years, companies in the packaging machinery sector have succeeded in implementing sustainable packaging concepts by making appropriate technical adjustments and newly developed machine solutions. interpack is the showcase for innovations and, at the same time, the starting point for further development in the direction of a sustainable circular economy," sums up Clemens.

Among the many solutions that celebrated their world premiere at interpack were numerous packaging materials and packaging supplies in all their diversity. Over 1,000 exhibitors presented themselves in this area alone, a new record.

New and fresh formats

The other specials such as the interpack Start-up Zone, the Co-Packing joint stand, several award ceremonies with exciting packaging innovations, the "SAVE FOOD Highlight Route" with new approaches in the fight against global food loss and waste, and the promotion of women at "Women in Packaging" also attracted a great deal of attention. A special spirit was created at this premiere by around 200 women from the international industry, who exchanged ideas and established new networks at interpack.

The components, which was held as a parallel event in its own hall with 80 exhibitors, was also very well received by visitors. The supplier industry with components and software for packaging and process technology plays an important role in the digitalization of production processes.

The next interpack will be held in Düsseldorf from May 7 to 13, 2026.
