Half a year before the start of the trade fair, FachPack (25-27.9.2018) is almost fully booked. Just a few spots are still available.
For the first time, the European trade fair for packaging, processing and technology will occupy twelve halls at the exhibition venue in Nuremberg. Around 1,500 exhibitors and more than 40,000 trade visitors are expected in Nuremberg at the end of September. In order to maintain an overview with so many exhibitors, the floor plan has been completely revised and organized by themes.
“We would like to make it as easy as possible for visitors to FachPack to find their way around the trade fair. They should be able to quickly find the exhibitors who have the answers to their questions and who offer the corresponding solutions,” explains Cornelia Fehlner, Exhibition Director at NürnbergMesse. “In the past, focus areas have emerged organically in certain halls. We picked up on this idea and refined it in planning the layout of the halls.”
Halls divided up according to focus areas
FachPack illustrates the complete packaging value-added chain in all twelve exhibition halls: packaging machines, labelling and marking technology, as well as intra-logistics and packaging logistics are located in the southern exhibition halls (halls 1, 2, 3, 3A, 4, 4A). The northern exhibition halls (halls 4, 5, 6, 7, 7A, 8, 9) house packaging materials, packaging aids, as well as packaging printing and processing.
A new feature is that each of the twelve halls has a very specific theme that attracts a particularly large number of exhibitors. “Anyone coming to FachPack who is interested in packaging printing, finishing, and premium packaging, for example, should first visit the newly occupied hall 8, which features an attractive design. Visitors from the medical technology, pharmaceuticals, or cosmetics industries, on the other hand, should head directly for Hall 3A, because that is where they will find the largest range of products and services for their industry,” Fehlner continues. Topics such as paper, carton and cardboard can be found in a number of halls (Halls 5, 7A, 9) because there are so many exhibitors.
Each hall has the following focus areas:
Hall 1: Labelling and marking equipment
Hall 2: Adhesive technology
Hall 3: Automation, robotics, palletizing systems, components
Hall 3A: Pharmaceuticals and medical technology, cosmeticsHall 4: Intra- and packaging logistics, labelling and marking equipment, environmental engineering
Hall 4A: Intra- and packaging logistics
Hall 5: Paper, carton, cardboard, metal
Hall 6: Flexible and moulded plastic, wood
Hall 7: Flexible and moulded plastic
Hall 7A: Paper, carton, cardboard
Hall 8: Packaging printing, processing, premium packaging
Hall 9: Flexible and moulded plastic, paper, carton, cardboard
