Discover the future of branded and inspirational packaging

Packaging Innovations will take place in the Nekkerhal-Brussels North in Mechelen on 23 & 24 October. During Packaging Innovations you discover the latest designs and the most innovative packaging materials to take your brand to a higher level. By organizing Packaging Innovations together with Empack, the Nekkerhal-Brussels North is on those days the largest meeting place in Belgium for the entire packaging community.

Networking, knowledge sharing and innovation

This year we are focusing – more than ever – on a strong visitor experience. Both events get a nice mix of networking, sharing knowledge and innovating. To reinforce this, three new initiatives have been created: Get Smart (in) Packaging, RetailDetail Food Congress, Pentawards conferences & exhibition.
