Fachpack 2012 in Nürnberg counted 36,986 satisfied trade visitors on the three compact days from 25 to 27 September. So the atmosphere was rather cosy at times in the record number of eleven exhibition halls, where 1,466 companies presented their products and services for packaging, technology, processing and logistics. More visitors for more exhibitors – what more could the exhibition director wish for? Heike Slotta: “We are obviously delighted with the growth, but what is actually important is that Fachpack has improved its strong point – the popular mixture of expertise, practical orientation and constructive working atmosphere. Our visitors really appreciate it when exhibitors take time to discuss a problem on the spot or even prepare initial approaches to solutions.”
It is apparent that not only German packaging specialists like this. Every fifth visitor travelled from abroad, mainly from the neighbouring countries of Austria, the Czech Republic, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Italy, Poland and France. The Bavarians were naturally the most strongly represented German visitors, followed by visitors from Baden-Württemberg, Hesse and North Rhine-Westphalia.
The typical Fachpack visitor works in industries like printing/paper/cardboard, food/beverages, metalworking, plastics, pharmaceuticals/cosmetics, automotive engineering and component supply, packaging and logistics services, electrical equipment/components, and chemicals.
The conclusion of the visitors, of whom 85 % are involved in procurement decisions in their companies, is a great compliment for the exhibiting companies. Almost all visitors are satisfied with the products on display at Fachpack 2012 and 96 % appreciate the varied opportunities for information and contact on the exhibition stands, according to the results of a survey by an independent institute.
The supporting programme at Fachpack was more varied than ever with eleven special shows.
