EMPACK Barakaldo

26. - 27. February 2025 | Trade fair for innovations in packaging technology

The EMPACK is a specialized trade fair focusing on packaging technologies, materials, and related services. It is held annually at the Bilbao Exhibition Centre (BEC) in Barakaldo, attracting a wide range of visitors—from leading industry brands to medium-sized companies seeking innovative packaging solutions. The name EMPACK is derived from the combination of 'Emballage' (Packaging) and 'Pack', succinctly encapsulating the fair's central themes..

Organized by easyFairs Iberia, EMPACK serves as an important industry meeting point, offering a platform for the exchange of ideas, innovations, and solutions, as well as for initiating business contacts along the entire packaging process chain.

EMPACK covers a broad spectrum: from packaging materials such as plastics, paper, cardboard, and metals to bio-based materials. Additionally, it includes machinery and equipment for packaging, filling, sealing, labeling, and palletizing, as well as technologies for automated packaging processes and robotic solutions. Innovative printing and design solutions for labels and packaging, including digital and flexo printing, are also presented. The fair features systems for product labeling, barcodes, RFID technologies, camera systems, metal detectors, and other inspection devices. A special focus is placed on sustainable, reusable, and recyclable packaging solutions and corresponding recycling technologies.

The fair not only strengthens the local industry in Bilbao and Spain but also serves as a central hub for international business relations. Highlights of EMPACK include expert lectures, workshops, and product presentations.

The exhibitors represent a broad range of industries, from packaging to marketing and product development, extending to industrial packaging, labeling, printing, and sustainability. The audience is equally diverse, including designers, packaging managers, marketing experts, and professionals in robotics and palletizing.

As part of an international series of fairs, EMPACK underscores its significance as a global platform. The excellent infrastructure of the Feria de Madrid IFEMA facilitates access and provides an excellent base for exhibitors and visitors.

In summary, EMPACK is more than just a fair: it is a central hub for innovation, networking, and education in the packaging industry and an indispensable event for professionals in this sector.

The EMPACK will take place on 2 days from Wednesday, 26. February to Thursday, 27. February 2025 in Barakaldo.
