    This year, Turkish companies have significantly increased their presence – 35 companies from Turkey take part in the exhibition and more than half of them are manufacturers of packaging equipment.

    Sponsors of the exhibition: Mondi, Pharmcontract Group, Megaflex and Glloss Label.

    Traditionally, many companies prepare presentations of new equipment, packaging materials or finished packaging.

    A constant participant of the exhibition – Mondi – will present a wide range of innovative packaging solutions. Specialists will be able to familiarize themselves with nearly all spheres of the company's activity: consumer packaging, technical films, boxboard, industrial bags, and Mondi will present the corrugated packaging for the first time in the history of its participation. Mondi will also present novelties. For example, a water-soluble film which is a smart, eco-friendly and convenient biodegradable solution for packaging and easy dosing of powders, tabs and granulates.

    Pharmcontract Group will present solutions for filling of the products of different consistencies into individual and multiple packaging, from liquid and viscous products to packaging of the bulk products.

The dry residue is much easier to dispose of, which is very important from the environmental point of view.

    The trading and manufacturing company R.M. Pak from St. Petersburg will offer the specialists new series of environmentally friendly containers of various sizes.

    The entire series is ideal for packing the world culinary specialities (sushi, rolls, pasta, shawarma, pilaf), as well as desserts and confectionery.

    Business Programme

    Traditionally, the RosUpack’s exposition is complemented by business program events that serve as a platform for professional dialogue between consumers and suppliers of packaging solutions and raw materials for packaging production, providing an opportunity for getting more information on the prospects for the development of the market, technologies and demand. The conferences, which are held within the framework of the RosUpack’s business program, attract more than 1000 specialists every year.

    The Forum “CorrugatedDigit”: Digital Solutions in the Corrugated Cardboard Industry” will open the program on June 20, where representatives of the development companies will tell about new digital printing technologies for the corrugated industry.

    On June 21, one of the key events of the business program will take place – International Scientific And Practical Conference “Packaging Business of Russia on the Verge of Change. Ecology, Consolidation, Industry 4.0 – How to Find Your Way?” The National Confederation of Packers (NKPak) will hold the conference. Participants will discuss the growing needs of the Russian manufacturers of packaging and raw materials, the trends in demand for packaging made from various materials, and issues concerning the handling of packaging waste.

    The conference “Extended Producer Responsibility. Environmental Aspects” will be devoted to the state regulation of waste management and changes in 458-FZ. The Association “Waste Paper Recycling League” will organize the conference on June 21.

    The packaging and the process of its production are inextricably linked with the issues of storage and logistics. This is the reason why RosUpack hosts the conference “Russia’s Logistics Market. Effective Solutions for Modern Warehouse” every year. This year, the conference will be held on June 21, and the organizer is Expo Media Group.

    The Corrugated Industry magazine invites experts from companies, which manufacture corrugated containers, to visit the conference “Corrugated Industry” on June 22. The issues concerning the new corrugated technologies and improvement of the quality of the manufactured packaging will be the main theme.

    The competition PART Awards (Packaging: Art, Research, Technology) will be held for the sixth time already within the framework of RosUpack. Russian and foreign manufacturers of finished packaging and label products take part in it, and students of higher and secondary specialised educational institutions submit packaging concepts to the competition. A special exposition of the PART Awards 2017 entries – both concepts and finished products – is presented in Hall 4, Stand D 101.

    Printech will be held simultaneously with RosUpack, which will complement the exposition with equipment, technologies and materials for various types of printing.
