New Scanpack Summit will shape the future of the industry

Politicians, researchers and business leaders are invited to a new strategy conference to be held in Gothenburg in autumn in conjunction with the Scanpack packaging fair.

Scanpack is the leading meeting place for the packaging industry. This year the fair will take place October 4–7 at the Swedish Exhibition and Congress Centre in Gothenburg. On the first day, the all-new Scanpack Summit initiative will take place.

“This is the result of a demand-driven initiative that originated from our exhibitors. “Up to now, there has been no arena for discussing strategic issues in the industry,” says Anna-Lena Friberg, Business Manager at Scanpack.

Scanpack Summit will be a strategy conference, aimed at decision-makers in the packaging industry. The opportunity is well chosen, as large parts of the packaging world are still located in Gothenburg.

"We see how easily polarisation and different theories about what is best for the future arise, for example in the selection of materials. At the same time, there is a desire to meet across borders and find new ways to work together on critical future issues such as sustainability, climate change and circular solutions"

The intention is for Scanpack Summit to bring together researchers and politicians with the packaging industry’s decision-makers, thought leaders and end-customers.

Annika Persson is a business developer at the Swedish Exhibition and Congress Centre and is working on the concept of the Scanpack Summit. She believes that the entire packaging industry needs to drive sustainability in a deeper way in its business and development strategies. Scanpack Summit captures the issues and all their perspectives: from the researchers’ view to the demands of business for profitability and to what is politically possible.
