On 4-5 October Kistamässan will be opening its doors to the well-established packaging event Empack. 

Together, Empack, Packaging Innovations and Label & Print make up the biggest packaging event taking place in the Nordic region this year. One of the most interesting speakers at this year’s event is Moira Cullen from New York.
