Traditionally, the packaging industry has a strong culture of events and tradeshows. That’s where engineers, marketing and sales professionals, account managers, and executives meet to keep an eye on the latest news. But, as you know, the pandemic caused by Covid-19 has changed a lot in this sector (and in almost all others). Face-to-face packaging events are increasingly rare and the whole industry has had to reinvent itself. And this was a good opportunity to migrate a bit from trade shows to the digital environment.
To help you get organized, we’ve created a list of the main packaging events. It’s a live catalogue and we’ll always update it so you can stay on top of the news.
