"The Network is a very interesting collaborative initiative that creates a network of shared knowledge about the needs and trends that drive the demand for packaging in different countries. It is about generating quality information that is useful for manufacturers and distributors who are either already operating or want to enter the markets represented by member trade fairs, many of which are emerging markets with tremendous potential for growth in the coming years.
At the same time, the member trade fairs can get first-hand information and valuable contacts in relation to the key companies, organisations, associations and professionals in the packaging industry of the countries represented in The Network. This fact will undoubtedly help to boost the scope and international pulling power of our trade fairs in line with the export objectives that the national packaging industries have established."

ABOUT THE HISPACK EXHIBITION
Hispack, the leading Spanish trade fair for the packaging industry and one of the top four in Europe in its speciality, will be held from 19th to 22st October 2021 at the Fira de Barcelona Gran Via venue.
The event structures its offer into five sectors providing all the innovation for both food and non-food companies: Packaging Machinery & Process, Brand Packaging, Industrial Packaging, Labelling & Bottling, Logistics and Automation & Robotics. This sectorisation improves the visit experience for professionals and will attract new professional profiles related to packaging.
The extensive programme of activities, conferences and content dissemination that Hispack promotes among all the players in the packaging life cycle before, during and after the show, continues to focus on the four major challenges that the packaging sector must face: sustainability, automation and digitalisation, logistics and user experience.
Hispack 2021 expects to receive 40,000 professional visitors from 18,000 companies with significant decision-making profiles representing a 10% increase compared to the previous edition. As for the exhibiting companies set to attend, Hispack will host about 1,000 direct exhibitors (18% more than in 2018). The number of exhibitors will increase in all the sub-sectors, highlighting a 35% increase in machinery for the food processing sector being on display.
