Discover the future of packaging technology

Empack will take place in the Nekkerhal-Brussels North in Mechelen on 23 & 24 October. Empack brings exhibitors and visitors together to discover the latest trends and developments regarding packaging technology and packaging machines. Besides Empack, there is also Packaging Innovations, the event that combines the technological packaging world of Empack with the creative “minds of branding”. Due to this colocation, the Nekkerhal-Brussels North is the largest meeting place in Belgium for the entire packaging community.

Networking, knowledge sharing and innovation

This year we are focusing – more than ever – on a strong visitor experience. Both events get a nice mix of networking, sharing knowledge and innovating. To reinforce this, three new initiatives have been created: Get Smart (in) Packaging, RetailDetail Food Congress, Pentawards conferences & exhibition. But there’s even more to discover: click here to discover the full programme.
