Half a year before the start of the trade fair, and FachPack 2018 is already almost fully booked, with just a few spots still available. For the first time, the European trade fair for packaging, processing and technology will occupy 12 halls at the exhibition venue in Nuremberg. Around 1,500 exhibitors and more than 40,000 trade visitors are expected in Nuremberg on 25-27 September. In order to maintain an overview with so many exhibitors, the floor plan has been completely revised and organised by themes.
"We would like to make it as easy as possible for visitors to FachPack to find their way around the trade fair," explains Cornelia Fehlner, exhibition director at NürnbergMesse. "They should be able to quickly find the exhibitors who have the answers to their questions and who offer the corresponding solutions."
FachPack illustrates the complete packaging value-added chain in all 12 exhibition halls: packaging machines, labelling and marking technology, as well as intra-logistics and packaging logistics, which are located in the southern exhibition halls (Halls 1-3, 3A, 4 and 4A). The northern exhibition halls (Halls 4-7, 7A, 8 and 9) house packaging materials and packaging aids, as well as packaging, printing and processing.
Each of the 12 halls have very specific themes and have attracted large numbers 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 says.
