Visiting Düsseldorf

This is what it was like at interpack 2023

The anticipation for the first trade show highlight this year was great and the expectations were fully met: Exhibitors and visitors were thrilled by interpack 2023!

For a whole week, visitors to Düsseldorf were able to find out about the latest trends in packaging, packaging machinery and processing. More than 2700 exhibitors from five continents took part this year, underlining once again that this event is one of the must-attend events in the industry. No wonder, since the last interpack took place in 2017, as the regular date in 2020 was cancelled due to pandemic.

Trade show highlight in the Rhine metropolis

All user sectors got their money's worth - food, beverages, confectionery and baked goods, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, non-food and industrial goods. The megatrends of digitalization and sustainability, which are becoming increasingly relevant in all branches of industry, were also particularly present everywhere.


Märtens in the thick of it

Our team of experts from Märtens naturally did not miss this event. At our booth D74 in Hall 3, we were able to hold numerous interesting discussions and make exciting new contacts. Our latest innovations attracted particular interest: the variable Expanding conveyor system as well as carriers for rod network belts, which we manufacture using an innovative 3D printing process.
