METPACK - the premier international fair for the metal packaging sector, is set to return from 23 to 27 February 2021. After its postponement in 2020, METPACK 2021 will mark the 10th edition of the leading industry event that brings together major players working along the entire value-added chain.

Messe Essen is expected to host a more packed event than ever with METPACK 2021. Over 300 exhibitors will showcase state-of-the-art technology for the manufacturing of cans, caps and containers, as well as coating, closing and storage equipment, metal packaging supplies and materials. Staying on top of current technological advancements and having access to the latest developments is a focal point of METPACK, so the topics of sustainability and digitalisation will be highly emphasized. Participants can learn about the latest research findings in the field at the one-day METPACK Conference, which is also a great networking platform. Meanwhile, the METPACK Innovation Award will spotlight groundbreaking new products that promote sustainability and efficiency.

Bookings for METPACK are consistently high, so you will be facing a large competition for the best accommodation in Essen for the duration of the event. ExpoBeds can help you make a reservation at special discounted rates for trade fair participants.
