In May there are many trade-fairs, and while Vitafoods trade fair in Geneva, Switzerland, is currently taking place, (the trade fair for the nutraceutical sector) we want to talk to you about another Exhibition for the packaging and processing sector. Ipack-Ima Exhibition will be held as every year in Milan, from May 29th to June 1st. Let’s see together what this event holds for us!
News of 2018’s edition
For its 24th edition, Ipack-Ima has decided to push on innovation and internationality thanks to a new partnership with Fiera Milano (the largest Italian trade fair operator) and UCIMA (Union of Italian Manufacturers for Automatic and Packaging Machines).
This is not the only news! Ipack-Ima offers to its visitors a totally new experience of visiting: the fair will in fact be divided into eight “business communities” that represent the respective destination markets, to facilitate and optimise visitors’ visit time. The eight areas that will be possible to visit are the following ones:
- Food, Fresh & Convenience
- Pasta, Bakery & Milling
- Industrial & Durable Goods
- Health & Personal Care
- Chemical Industrial & Home
- Fashion & Luxury
The choice is therefore wide and many industrial sectors will be represented. Another new feature is the “my matching program” online platform, which has been designed and invented to allow both exhibitors and visitors to organise meetings in advance.
The exhibition sectors
Visitors of Ipack-Ima will have at their disposal a very wide range of products for both Food and non-food sectors:
- Machines and equipment for primary and secondary packaging
- Machines for filling and packaging liquids and drinks
- Packaging production machines
- Machines for printing on packaging
- Labeling, coding and marking systems
- Machines for transport or end-of-line packaging
- Primary, secondary and transport packaging
- Packaging materials
- Machines and ingredients for the process
- Automation systems
- Robot & Software
- Handling systems on complete packaging and processing lines
Ipack-Ima therefore offers a complete picture that goes from technology, to robotics, from components to materials and obviously processing machines and packaging machines, from primary packaging to secondary and tertiary packaging.
In addition, numerous conferences will be dedicated to Industry 4.0, food traceability, safety or sustainability applied to the world of processing and packaging. Do not miss also IPACK-Mat in Hall 14 that will be dedicated to innovative materials for the packaging of the future.
