On May 4, 2017; THE event for everyone in the packaging industry will start in Düsseldorf, Germany. THE event is Interpack 2017.
Why Attend Interpack 2017? Here are our top 3 reasons for attending.
- Interpack boasts as the” essential event” for the CPG, Pharmaceutical, Cosmetic, food and non-food industries to name a few. This is in no way inaccurate. Interpack presents to the entire supply chain unlike other packaging trade shows. Everything from custom-made solutions to state-of-the-art designs are present at this event. Imagine the variety you can expect from representation from so many different industry types!
- Consumer protection. Is the product authentic? What happens if there is a recall? What happened in my products supply chain? All these questions come into play in a big way. Many countries will have serialization requirements soon. The US Pharmaceutical industry, as an example, will require serialization by November 2017 (DSCSA). The EU pharmaceutical clock is ticking as well when it comes to serialization. While not required yet, Russia has a serialization pilot underway and this will impact pharma manufacturers. Serialization helps to protect the consumer and the company and could be why you see the implementation happening globally.
- Product Piracy Protection aka Anti-Counterfeiting and Diversion. Whether a company wants to admit it or not, companies across the globe are struggling with these issues. When products are counterfeited, the company can lose profits, brand reputation and be exposed to liability. When products are diverted, the company loses profit and product! These seem like relatively simple reasons, but they can also be very costly.
