10 Jahre Jubiläum

Easyfairs inszeniert Verpackung – Einzigartigkeit zählt

«Empack» feiert Jubiläum: Der führende Verpackungs-Branchenevent in der Schweiz findet 2016 zum 10. Mal statt.

Visions und Values: Das ist 2016 das Motto für die Easyfairs-Verpackungsevents in Deutschland und der Schweiz. Vor 10 Jahren wurde die «Empack» als einzigartiges Messeformat in der Schweiz lanciert. Aus der einen Messe für Verpackungslösungen, Prozesse & Design sind inzwischen drei europaweit erfolgreiche Messebrands geworden - «Empack», «Packaging Innovations» und «Label&Print». Sie bieten eine ideale Bühne, um Zukunftsvisionen aus Technik, Design und Markenwelt der richtigen Zielgruppe zu präsentieren. In Deutschland findet an einem neuen Standort die «Empack» 2016 erstmals parallel zur Intralogistik-Leitmesse CeMAT in Hannover statt – mit stark internationaler Ausrichtung. Inszenierung von Verpackung an der Schnittstelle zu Design, Lifestyle und Kunst steht im Mittelpunkt der «Packaging Innovations» 2016 in der Fischauktionshalle Hamburg.

The wrapper is everything – "Packaging Art House" as art object and event space

Under the headline "the wrapper is everything", the organiser of the international packaging events Packaging Innovations, Empack and Label&Print is planning to use the “Packaging Art House” in upcoming shows as a platform for special exhibits and extraordinary installations as well as for presentations of exclusive brands and products.
