IPACK-IMA presents the new features of the 2018 show at Interpack

The international press conference discussed the new corporate structure, the layout based on target markets, the international promotion activities and The Innovation Alliance.

The first international presentation of IPACK-IMA 2018, the leading exhibition of food and non-food processing and packaging technologies scheduled for Fiera Milano from 29 May to 1 June 2018, was held on Saturday 6th May during Interpack.

In the presence of journalists and representatives of business associations and companies from Austria, Brazil, China, France, Greece, Germany, Italy, Nigeria, Singapore, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey, UK and USA, Riccardo Cavanna and Domenico Lunghi, respectively Chairman and Managing Director of the show’s management company, presented the key innovations of IPACK-IMA 2018.

“The 2018 edition will mark a major turning point for the show,” said Cavanna at the beginning of the press conference. “Following the acquisition of the show management company by UCIMA (Italian Automatic Packaging Machinery Manufacturers’ Association) and Fiera Milano, the event’s strategies have been redefined with the aim of further expanding its international scope and making the Italian show a key appointment for industry professionals keen to discover the latest technological innovations, the highest performing materials and cutting-edge logistics solutions.

Through the support of the leading Italian packaging machinery manufacturers affiliated to Ucima and the show’s longstanding exhibitors, a new exhibition space layout has been organised according to target markets.
