FachPack 2018 Bigger than ever
Around 1,500 exhibitors and more than 40,000 trade visitors are expected in Nuremberg from 25 to 27 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.”
The fair 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.
