Verpakking & Label Awards
After the first day of the show, a festive presentation of the very first Verpakking & Label Awards in collaboration with Verpakking & Label Magazine takes place. The prize includes two categories: intelligent packaging machines and innovative packaging and packaging materials.
The competition is open to packaging manufacturers and suppliers, design agencies and packaging companies. Entries must meet five criteria: innovative, sustainable, efficient and they must be commercially available on the market, but not introduced before 2020.

Also Trends will be presenting its Trends Gazelles Packaging Awards during Empack. Fast-growing companies or ‘Gazelles’ are strong and competitive companies that positively influence the business climate in their region. Companies are honoured in three different categories: small, medium and large companies.
After the presentation of the Trends Gazelles Packaging Awards, a network drink will follow.
