upakovka already is the no. one trade fair in Russia for Packaging and Processing machines and devices. From 24 to 27 January 2017, upakovka underlined its position in the Russian market and demonstrated that the positive outlook of the domestic economy for the future applies in particular to the packaging sectors and related processing industries.
23,000 experts from Russia and its neighboring countries came to Moscow Expocentre in Krasnaya Presnya to visit upakovka and interplastica (Int. Trade Fair for Plastics and Rubber). 20,900 visitors were recorded in 2016.

Innovative western technologies are also now particularly highly prized, after all, there is still a significant need for investment in the production of packaging, food and consumer goods.

The innovationparc, as a unique brand of interpack, had a widely noticed premiere at upakovka 2017. Replacing our successful FUTURE FORUM, it is the show’s own forum for specialized themes of the future and innovative technologies. Visitors and exhibitors meet here for an exchange of creative ideas and the development of visionary ideas on basic social, economic and ecological themes.
Working with our partners in industry, we will continue to do our effort in presenting market-focused, forward-looking content to Russian trade visitors. For that reason upakovka 2018 will be dedicated, among other things, to the theme of Industry 4.0.
