Innovation and sustainability at industrial and production level in a unique European business ecosystem. IPACK-IMA, scheduled at Fiera Milano until May 6th, opens today with a complete and innovation-oriented exhibition offering in the processing & packaging field.

The importance of the event is confirmed by the numbers expressed by the exhibition, as Valerio Soli, President of Ipack Ima, points out: “Latest-generation packaging and advanced processing and packaging systems for consumer goods, industrial goods and durable goods. This is the proposal of IPACK-IMA with more than 1,160 exhibitors, 24% from 27 countriesand more than 25 specialized food and non-food events. IPACK-IMA offers the Italian and international manufacturing industry an attractive and complete technological panorama, with previews of future production trends. A much-awaited and much-needed return to the industry, the right place and time for our exhibitors and visitors who will be at the show looking for just one thing: innovation.

The resilient sector represented by IPACK-IMA contributes to representing Italian excellence at the international level in terms of expertise, innovation and exports.

The total turnover of the Italian packaging machinery sector in 2021 was € 8.2 billion, a progress of 5 points compared to the previous year. This progress is even more significant if we compare it with that of 2019. On the other hand, order intake in 2021 grew by 9% compared to the previous year, so these are numbers that show how healthy our sector is” – says Matteo Gentili – President of Ucima. “There are great expectations for IPACK-IMA, which will take place in attendance after 4 years from the previous edition, a long period in which companies have developed a lot of innovation. The Italian manufacturers’ sector has carefully prepared itself and will show an image of absolute excellence of Made in Italy in the world”.

At IPACK-IMA business ideas are born, take shape and develop thanks to the endless opportunities for technology transfer offered by the exhibition.
