Sustainability has become priority number one for ALL4PACK Paris and organisers have made it front and centre for future editions. How? By starting the Objective Zero Impact space. This is the designated area where visitors can introduce themselves to initiatives with a positive impact. It’s a place for establishing meaningful connections. OZI is a hybrid event without any existing equivalent as it combines the traits of think-tanks and exchange platforms.
It runs throughout the entirety of the trade show and aims to revolutionize how we even think about packaging. That’s why it’s the perfect platform for startups to establish a presence and grow their target audience in an organic way.
ALL4PACK wouldn’t be the same without its conference programme. You’re treated to debates, talks and lectures from the most knowledge people in the industry. The ALL4PACK Conference is divided into four tracks – Packaging, Processing, Printing and Logistics. It’s where you’re able to learn all about new regulations and standards as well as see experts analyse the most pressing issues facing the packaging sectors.
There will be talks on eco-design, circular economy, end-of-life and the application of this packaging revolution on sectors like the food industry, e-commerce and pharmaceuticals. If you’re in a specialized industry like pet packaging, then the PETnology Europe Conference is where you should head. It’s a specialized conference that takes place under the umbrella of the ALL4PACK and has had 25 highly successful editions. Topics range from alternative to current pet materials to circularity and the future of recycling?
Speaking of innovations. You can’t miss out on ALL4PACK INNOVATIONS, which is essential viewing. A qualified jury selects the most creative and revolutionary products and technologies that deserve the distinction of earning the highly coveted ALL4PACK medal. Last edition there were over 300 products entered into the competition, but only 46 innovations managed to get any recognition and wound up on the INNOVATIONS showcase area for potential buyers to review.
