FACHPACK sees itself as a source of impetus and as such will again organize an extensive lecture program during the exhibition days from September 27-29, 2022 in Nuremberg.
The two forums PACKBOX (Hall 9) and TECHBOX (Hall 3C) are always extremely popular with FACHPACK visitors. Both forums attracted around 9,500 participants last year. The special feature: important partners from the packaging industry shape the program and invite interested parties not only to listen, but also to join in the discussion. Industry topics such as shortages of skilled workers, supply chain bottlenecks, or raw material prices are addressed. Sometimes they go into depth, sometimes they debate current topics in general.
Both forums are structured according to daily topics. In the PACKBOX, the topics are “Market Experience & Market Expectation” (Sept. 27), “Sustainable Design & Materials” (Sept. 28) and “Packaging Digital & Smart” (Sept. 29). In the TECHBOX, the program includes “Innovation & Climate Strategy” (Sept. 27), “New Business Models in Packaging Machinery Manufacturing/ Skilled Workers / Workforce Attraction and Retention” (Sept. 28) and “Efficiency & Digitalization” (Sept. 29).
“Why the packaging industry must change”
On the first day of the trade fair, for example, Christoph Kopp of Horváth & Partners Management Consulting and head of the Horváth AG study “The European Packaging Industry 2025” and his colleague Markus Bergmann will speak on the topic of “Market Experience/Market Expectations: The Future of the Packaging Industry – Why the Industry Must Change.” An interview with Christoph Kopp can be found here.
In addition to the PACKBOX and TECHBOX forums, there is also the exhibitor forum, the INNOVATIONBOX in Hall 5, where registered exhibitors can present their innovations and product highlights to trade visitors on site in 30-minute presentations.
This year, the digital extension myFACHPACK for matchmaking and knowledge transfer will also be available again. myFACHPACK extends the trade fair on site into the virtual world. Already in the run-up to the show, starting September 16, the new tool offers visitors the opportunity to network with exhibitors, partners, and speakers. During the trade fair, the program of the lecture forums PACKBOX, TECHBOX, and INNOVATIONSBOX will be streamed live on myFACHPACK and will also be available there afterwards. myFACHPACK can be used on the desktop, but also mobile via an app: www.fachpack.de/myFACHPACK
