European Celebration of Packaging Technologies Has Confirmed the Importance of Trade Fairs
Although S&K LABEL did not participate in the Trade Fair as an exhibitor this time, we took the opportunity to visit the Trade Fair last week. After two long years, we again had the chance to see the news and trends in the packaging industry, meet the partners and discuss new business opportunities.
The whole Trade Fair was definitely dominated by the issue of environmentally friendly packaging materials, which was the main topic of both the last year and this year. We have mainly focused on sustainable materials for production of labels, innovative solutions supporting product recycling and, of course, innovations in production technologies. We returned back home with specific ideas that relate to both internal processes and new solutions within the production of labels which we will present to customers as soon as possible.
Despite some uncertainty during the preparations, because we did not know whether the event would eventually take place, despite lower numbers of exhibitors and despite the necessary hygiene measures, the Trade Fair was not delayed behind previous years. 788 exhibitors from 33 countries, 24,000 visitors, 7 full halls, rich accompanying program - these are the final numbers of the three-day marathon; and we are already looking forward to the next one.
