Many Guests from India, Japan and the USA
For everyone involved in the packaging and processing of products, there was only one “place-to-be” from May 4 to 10: Interpack in Düsseldorf. Those responsible for the international trade show were very satisfied with the course of business and the figures.
The world’s largest packaging trade show, Interpack networked the industry on a global level, and was both marketplace and content hub. According to the organizers, visitors from 155 countries came to Interpack 2023, and 2,807 exhibitors presented the power and creativity of the packaging industry with their technologies and solutions.
“With interpack, we were finally able to hold one of Messe Düsseldorf’s most important events again. It has made an impressive comeback and underlined its position as a global platform for the exchange of all players in the packaging sector, the related process industry and all user industries. Our goals were far exceeded,” said Bernd Jablonowski, Executive Director at Messe Düsseldorf, at the close of the show.
A total of around 143,000 visitors came to Interpack in Düsseldorf, two-thirds of them from abroad. In addition to many European countries, the largest visitor nations were India, Japan and the USA. Around 75 percent belonged to middle and upper management, it said.
“Interpack again at last!” was a phrase often heard in the halls, because after a break of six years, the large community was able to meet here again in person. Accordingly, the joy was great. “Interpack 2023 will resonate for a long time to come, both in business and personally,” said Director Thomas Dohse after seven days of the trade show. “The atmosphere in the halls was great and the intercultural exchange enriching for all sides.”
This is underscored by the positive feedback from visitors, more than 96 percent of whom said they had achieved their trade show goals, according to Messe. “We would like to thank Messe Düsseldorf for the excellent organization. I am sure I am speaking on behalf of all the companies. Interpack 2023 is simply a must for suppliers and users from all over the world to exchange experiences and realize business,” said Markus Rustler, president of Interpack 2023, at the close of the event.
