IPACK-IMA is one of the most important international events in the industry of packaging, processing and material handling technology: a large system exhibition showcasing the very top technology and solutions in all food and non-food sectors for industry professionals from every corner of the world.
Here, technology suppliers and end-user companies meet to increase business, create value, share knowledge and expertise and promote innovation, giving birth to a large professional community.

In order to encourage discussion among the members of the community, IPACK-IMA has created a new and valuable communication tool: the Business Community (see “Join the business Community” section on this website’s homepage) will bring together technology demand and offer according to different applications, helping both exhibitors and visitors in maximizing the benefits of their participation in IPACK-IMA.

IPACK-IMA is an event in constant development. The three previous editions displayed a continuous growth in the number of visitors: from 45,000 in 2003 to 54,000 in 2009, a 20% increase. This growth is largely due to an increase in the flow of international industry professionals, today making up 25% of the total. IPACK-IMA’s natural sphere of influence is Europe, the origin of 3 international professionals out of 4. Foreign participants from Eastern Europe also make up a large group: in 2009 professionals from this area grew by 37% compared to the previous edition. In addition, the exhibition attracts the interest of professionals from the Mediterranean Basin, whom in 2009 accounted for 11% of all international participations.

On the global arena, IPACK-IMA is the natural stage for the very top made in Italy products and a crucial event for large global market players: in 2009 exhibitors from outside of Italy numbered 403, 29% of a total of 1,400 participants.

IPACK-IMA 2012 will offer solutions and opportunities to create and develop future scenarios. A few examples include the Innovation Corner, an area dedicated to companies wishing to present their new products and services, and the Planning the Future area, a multidisciplinary project organized in cooperation with Conai involving universities, associations, research institutes and offering seminars, round table discussions and workshops.

IPACK-IMA 2012 is the place where the community it represents assembles and discusses on the occasion of an international convention dealing with technology as a means of ensuring food sustainability and safety. This event is part of a multi-year project started in 2009 with the convention “More technology, safety and quality, less hunger” organized with the support of the UN’s food agencies: UNIDO (United Nations Industrial Development Organization) and WPF (World Food Programme).

This commitment is carried onto 2010 and 2011 with the “IPACK-IMA days”: Technology for Food Safety.
