Upakovka: extensive innovationparc conference programme
At Upakovka 2018, being held at the AO Expocentre Krasnaja Presnja in Moscow from 23 to 26 January, visitors can expect an extensive innovationparc conference programme over the entire duration of the trade fair in 2018.

This will address various issues including shelf life extended by smart packaging (technology). The following day Industry 4.0 will play a pivotal role. The German Engineering Association VDMA will deal with the challenges and knowledge available for this trendy theme that also attracted plenty of attention at the previous interpack in Düsseldorf. The second to last day of the trade fair will revolve around flexible packaging – first with a lecture by Flexible Packaging Europe (FPE) on current trends followed by a slot presenting “Digital Innovations for Packaging and Labelling” organised by Danaflex and the magazine publish. On the last day of the trade fair, some of the problems of professional training in the packaging industry will be discussed.
Just under 850 companies in total will be exhibiting at Upakovka and the concurrently held interplastica – International Trade Fair Plastics and Rubber. Upakovka will again be held in the Forum Hall, one of the biggest at the exhibition centre. This means that visitors will again find the complete ranges for the packaging industry and related process industries pooled under one roof.
