Interpack 2020

May 7-13, 2020 the trade show organizer Messe Düsseldorf will host exhibitors who will present a complete image of the packaging and confectionery industries in 19 halls at a space of nearly 200,000 sqm.

In 2017, the U.S. Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies – PMMI – and 100 U.S. companies participated as exhibitors to compete with well-known national and international manufacturers displaying packaging solutions, shrink film machinery, fillers, printing and labeling machinery, test equipment, recyclable packaging material, closing machines, carton erectors, packaging material, components, and equipment. We will update the company list shortly before the trade fair will start. 170,500 visitors filled the 2,865 exhibitors’ order books in 2017, roughly 74 percent of which were international.
