The event organiser says that the merger is a natural progress that reflects the growing industry trend towards integration of the full production and logistics supply chain.
The event will be a biennial and because of the huge scope of the sectors it covers and the different industries, industry professionals attending the show are expected to be upwards of 100,000 over the course of the four days.
The showfloor will feature several showcase areas on the exhibition floor, with a particular stress on innovation, which is continuing to shape the industry, making it both more efficient and serving to reduce the impact on the environment.
Focus on innovation and networking
Prospective Innovation will showcase the trends of the future for the industry and features a 4-day immersion in a ‘laboratory’ to highlight the very latest innovations across all the segments.
The organiser also says that the show will be focused on creating networking opportunities and exchanges between professionals that will revolve around the specific meeting and presentations.
The event will also highlight the ALL4 PACK Observatory, an annual survey of the opinions of packaging professionals that has been run since 2005 as the Obervatoire de l’Emballage.
The survey is conducted by Annette Friedinger-Legay, an international packaging expert and consultant, who conducts the survey in an effort to discover the key trends and challenges that are driving the industry.
