Reunited and thriving: interpack 2023 exceeds expectations

Events

The recently concluded interpack, the premier event for the global packaging and processing industry, proved to be a resounding success, leaving attendees exhilarated and satisfied. From May 4 to 10, industry professionals from around the world flocked to the trade fair under the theme "Welcome Home," marking a long-awaited reunion for the sector.

True to its reputation, interpack once again surpassed expectations, setting new standards for the industry. Serving as both a thriving marketplace and a hub of valuable content, the world's largest and most influential packaging trade fair showcased the power and ingenuity of the packaging industry. With a staggering number of 2,807 exhibitors, the event delivered numerous innovative ideas, sparking impulses, and paving the way for fruitful business collaborations in the years to come.

Drawing in visitors from 155 countries, interpack 2023 attracted a diverse and international crowd, with approximately 143,000 attendees making their way to Düsseldorf. Notably, two-thirds of the visitors arrived from abroad, reflecting the event's global appeal. Prominent nations in attendance included India, Japan, and the USA, alongside many European countries. Moreover, a significant 75% of the visitors held middle or top management positions within their organisations.

After a six-year hiatus, the industry's vibrant community finally had the opportunity to reconnect face-to-face, resulting in an overwhelming display of joy and enthusiasm.

The overwhelmingly positive feedback from attendees reinforced the event's success, with an impressive 96% expressing that they had achieved their trade fair objectives.

Great mood, packed stands, good and plenty of business – this is how interpack 2023 can be summarised. Our member companies are very satisfied. On the weekend – as expected – many customers came from overseas. The quality of visitors was very high – some of the machines were purchased straight off the stand. After the six-year break people delighted all the more at seeing the interpack family finally coming together again in Düsseldorf. To us, interpack is, and always will be, the leading trade fair of the industry.
Richard Clemens, Managing Director of VDMA's Food Machinery and Packaging Machinery Association

Exhibitors, too, were thrilled as their expectations were surpassed manifold.

The next edition of interpack is already eagerly anticipated and will take place in Düsseldorf from May 7 to 13, 2026. Industry professionals can look forward to another exceptional gathering that will undoubtedly further advance the packaging and processing sector.
