Metpack confirmed for 2023
After Metpack, the trade fair for metal packaging, had to be cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic, it will now take place from 2-6 May 2023 at Messe Essen.
Numerous international companies have already expressed their participation, according to the organisers. For interested exhibitors, registration documents are now available at metpack.de. Visitors can expect to see trends and new developments in all aspects of packaging, machinery and equipment for the production of cans, lids and ends, as well as systems for filling and sealing.
“It was right and responsible to skip the past Metpack. Now more than ever, the industry needs its usual high-quality platform to showcase innovations. In 2023, the metal packaging industry will finally meet again,” said Wolfgang Niemsch, chairman of the Metpack Committee. The show which is held every three years and parallel to interpack, was last held in Essen in 2017.
Previously, around 300 exhibitors from 27 countries presented their products. In addition to the exhibitors’ range of products, it offers a supporting programme on current trends and developments in the metal packaging industry. With the Metpack Innovation Award, Messe Essen honours innovations that set new standards in terms of quality and efficiency. At the Metpack Conference accompanying the trade fair, representatives from research and industry will also discuss the trends of tomorrow. In addition, trade fair guests can expect a job forum and an exhibition of historic packaging machines.
