Thank you so much for your participation in the 14. Packaging Innovations Trade Fair!
Time passes faster at the fair - this is one of the most frequently repeated sentences during the 14th International Packaging Innovations Fair, which took place on 31.05-01.06 2022 at EXPO XXI Warsaw. These words are not surprising, because the program of the event was very broad. In addition to the fair exhibition, it included numerous workshops and presentations in the workShops zone, meetings with young designers in the Student Zone and the Packaging [R]evolution conference accompanying the fair.
Young designers and new ideas
Every year, the Student Zone gains great interest among visitors. It was no different during the 11th edition of the competition, the aim of which was to create an opportunity for young designers to take their first professional steps. On the first day, we met this year's winners.
- In the Graphic Design category, the first place went to Małgorzata Kosicka from the Bydgoszcz University of Technology for the design of the packaging and labels of craft beers/Bydgoski Zakład Piwa Architektoniczne.
- In the category Functionality and form, first place was awarded to Milena Bruska from the Bydgoszcz University of Technology for the design of packaging for an educational toy.
- In the Impression category, the first place went to Wojciech Zabel from the Bydgoszcz University of Technology for the Case Island project/packaging for a school kit for children.
In addition, in the Impression category, a distinction from the Polish Chamber of Packaging Recovery and Recycling PIOIRO was awarded to Natalia Stanisławska from the University of Agriculture in Krakow for the project of the starch-chitosan film with curcumin / biodegradable intelligent packaging.
The sponsor of the awards was the FANO company - for the second year in a row.
For the first time, we are exhibiting at the Packaging Innovations Fair, and our goal was to show packaging solutions. We are a Polish manufacturer and we wanted to show off our solutions and additionally gain new customers and distributors of our products. I think that the goal will be achieved because our stand and our products are very popular among potential customers due to the fact that we offer products that are ecological, innovative and an alternative solution to plastic fillings
Direct relations certainly increase the trust of both parties towards each other and this is very important. When we can sit at the same table, talk, and get to know each other, this cooperation is even better in the end. So I think that it is very important both in meetings at the fair and during face-to-face meetings, when we visit our clients or when clients visit us.
Ecology, rules and regulations imposed by the European Union, lack and price of raw materials. The industry is in a difficult post-pandemic situation during the war in Ukraine. Certain directions previously indicated in the face of the current situation have been disturbed and supply chains have been interrupted. We are in a completely different reality.
