After a four-year break, All4Pack will be held again in Paris in November. The world has changed in the meantime and the trade fair concept has adapted to the new circumstances accordingly.

The most obvious change: this year, for the first time, the fair will be held at the Paris Nord Villepinte exhibition centre. But even apart from this change of location, the 66,000 expected visitors can expect some changes. For example, in preparation for the fair, a council of experts was set up, including packaging experts from Procter & Gamble and L’Or├ęal. With the expertise gathered, the organisers wanted to gear the fair to the pressing challenges of the time, especially the issue of sustainability.

On the way to CO2 -neutral production

This focus will not only be evident at the stands of the more than 1,300 exhibitors, but also in the extensive supporting programme. At the centre of the trade fair, the Objective Zero Impact Forum will provide a platform for exchange and cooperation for a greener future. Here, above all, start-ups will present their new developments and solutions for CO2 -neutral production, both from the areas of packaging and packaging materials as well as technology and logistics.

The trade fair area “All4Pack Innovations” is heading in the same direction. Here, among other things, the fair’s own Innovation Award will be presented, this year in no less than five different categories: Sustainable and Responsible Solution; Design and Ergonomics; Innovative Technology; Material of the Future; Logistics Performance. A top-class jury of journalists, packaging experts and designers will decide which of the numerous entries will receive one of the awards.

The whole spectrum of the packaging industry

The All4Pack Live Content Forum, in turn, will feature presentations and panel discussions on all topics currently occupying the industry on all four days of the trade fair. The programme includes presentations on the legal situation of various packaging materials or discussions on the role of reusable packaging on the way to a CO2 -neutral industry.

“The whole exhibition team is already looking forward to meeting exhibitors and visitors again to spend time together and, more importantly, to tackle the challenges of the packaging and intralogistics industry together,” says All4Pack Event Director Guillaume Schaeffer. “This year, All4Pack will once again cover the entire breadth of the industry: packaging, processes, printing technology and intralogistics. The show will therefore be more than ever an opportunity for exhibitors to highlight the driving force behind their business and celebrate this reunion with visitors who are expected in their droves. “
