MeetingPack is a conference held every two years by AIMPLAS and AINIA. The fifth conference, taking place on 20-21 April 2022 at the Valencia Conference Centre, will bring together packaging value chain stakeholders to discuss Barrier Packaging Solutions: A Challenge for the Circular Economy.
MeetingPack 2022 will enforce strict health measures to ensure that participants are safe. It will once again address the challenges and opportunities of the circular economy in the barrier food packaging sector. MeetingPack 2022 will take a more technical approach and showcase solutions and success stories.
The previous MeetingPack conference, held in 2019, helped consolidate the conference's reputation as a key event thanks to the attendance of more than 350 national and international experts. Virtual MeetingPack 2021 gave companies a strategic overview of trends in the barrier packaging sector, enabling them to learn about the outlook for business and share information on the challenges facing the entire sector over the coming months.
The wide variety of food packaging currently available on the market is the result of innovations designed to meet the need to preserve different types of food while complying with food safety and shelf life, as well as functionalities adapted to consumer demand. More recently, a new key factor has emerged: environmental sustainability. The result is a new and even more challenging context for the industry, which must provide packaging that extends food’s shelf life while ensuring human safety - and provide new features to facilitate consumption inside and outside the home while having the least possible impact on the environment. The challenges posed by this scenario are so far reaching that they will be the main focus of next year's MeetingPack.
