The trade fair for metal packaging, Metpack, will be held at Messe Essen from 2-6 May 2023.

After the last event was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic and then had to be cancelled, it is now reopening in the usual three-year cycle and parallel to interpack (4-10 May 2023).

In addition to packaging, the range of products presented by the more than 300 exhibitors at Metpack recently includes machinery and equipment for the production of cans, lids and bases, as well as filling and sealing systems. Interested exhibitors will soon find the application documents at

“We are confident that Metpack 2023 can take place with its usual size and internationality. On the part of the exhibitors, we have recently experienced a lot of understanding and encouragement. The message was clear: The industry needs Metpack and would rather come back to Essen today than tomorrow. Due to the interpack taking place in Düsseldorf at the same time, we are again expecting considerable synergies with the visitors,” said Oliver P Kuhrt, managing director of Messe Essen.

The Metpack Innovation Award will be announced during the show and current trends will also be the subject of the conference, at which representatives from industry and science will provide insights into the future of metal packaging. This is characterised, among other things, by more product variety, less material and networked production.
