BARCELONA, Spain, April 25, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Hispack 2024 will focus on sustainable packaging to contribute to a better future. From May 7 to 10, Spain’s largest packaging fair will bring together 780 exhibitors from 28 countries and 1,250 brands at the Gran Via location in Fira de Barcelona to showcase the latest innovations in materials, packaging, containers, labels, packaging, processing and logistics technology and machines. More than 27,000 visitors are expected during the 2024 edition.

Organized by Fira de Barcelona in collaboration with Graphispack Association, Hispack 2024 will grow by 18% in number of companies and 12% in exhibition space and will be spread over 36,000 m2.2 in halls 2 and 3 with leading manufacturers and distributors with the latest technology, materials and packaging solutions focused on sustainability.

Trends on the stock market
Sustainability is central to Hispack 2024. Sustainable packaging seeks to minimize its impact on the environment through ecological design that focuses on the reduction of materials, recycling and reuse. The event will showcase examples of how companies are using recycled or biodegradable materials in combination with the deployment of smart packaging that improves supply chain efficiency, traceability and consumer experience, along with an overhaul of manufacturing processes to reduce the carbon footprint.

The ‘Best in class’ program will highlight three international packaging success stories: the municipal circular system for collecting, washing and reusing beverage and takeaway food packaging in Aarhus (Denmark), the innovative system to recycle plastic refills to recycle and new containers from Kao Corporation (Japan), and a project to use blockchain technology to track the recycling of plastic bottle caps by AMITA Corporation (Japan).

Along these lines, Hispack, in collaboration with the Japan Packaging Institute, will promote Japan as a high-potential market, showcasing trends and experiences in this country, and facilitating business contacts with the Japanese delegation attending the fair.

Spanish packaging technology manufacturers, who are among the top 10 exporters in the world, will benefit from Hispack to contact buyers from European markets, Latin America and the Mediterranean visiting the fair.
