Empack Brussels 2016 lifts packaging industry to higher level

Empack 2015On 21 & 22 September the 15th edition of the Empack trade show will take place at Brussels Expo. The place to be for all players in the packaging industry where supply and demand meet in an informal setting. The place where visitors and exhibitors can explore first-hand the latest trends and technologies. And this year: even more zones, even more visitor experience, even more interaction.


Unique meeting platform for the sector

So far more than 80% of the exhibition floor has already been reserved. A powerful signal of the sector’s firm belief in the added value of Empack for their business.

Routes & zones to enhance visitor experience

The organisation makes every effort to enhance visitor experience. Three routes (Innovation, Automation & E-commerce) allow visitors to selectively discover the innovative solutions from the exhibitors. In addition, there are four zones with specific thematic areas:

Biobased Plaza
Biobased packaging is gaining in importance. Experts say this is the future in the field of packaging, but many questions remain to be answered. That is why Easyfairs, in collaboration with Belgian BioPackaging, has created the Biobased Plaza. This Plaza is a location on the exhibition floor reserved for companies and/or knowledge institutes active in biobased packaging, innovations or materials.

Machine Safety & Automation Plaza
Automated packaging lines boost capacity and save costs & time. However, these faster packaging lines also present new safety challenges. The Machine Safety & Automation Plaza, in collaboration with Prebes, provides information about products and services that offer solutions.

Food Pack Terrace
The Food Pack Terrace is a joint initiative of a number of exhibitors that allows the visitor to see a complete packaging line in action. This has never been seen before! From badge scanning over the various steps of the packaging process to a personalised end product.

Pharma Village
Pharmaceutical packing is a rapidly developing market, with annual growth rates of more than 6%. The crucial role of packaging during distribution, delivery and safe consumption of medicines is not to be underestimated. In the Pharma Village you can meet up with players that offer solutions to tomorrow’s challenges: small dose packaging, serialisation, refrigerated packaging, anti-counterfeiting, GDP, etc.

Interactive seminar programme with conferences

Empack opts for an interactive formula. One example is ‘Packstory’, an exhibition on the complete life cycle of a packaging, a true sensory experience. Or the ‘Innovation Gallery’ where the spotlight is on the winners of the Greener Packaging Awards.
Finally, knowledge institutes will discuss in detail a number of topical issues, collected through a visitor survey, at conferences. Topics include: Biobased packaging, Active & intelligent packaging, Food migration, packaging & food loss, E-commerce & packaging, etc. The conferences in combination with a VIP business lunch provide an opportunity for intense networking. Come and experience the power of Empack.
