IPACK-Mat 2018 - Innovative Material Solutions

A special project, new ideas and solutions for the packaging of the future


 is a new exhibition space at IPACK-IMA 2018, entirely dedicated to innovative solutions in raw materials, components and high value-added packaging.

On show at FieraMilano from 29 May to 1 June 2018, rounding out the offer of IPACK-IMA 2018, a space dedicated to premium packaging for cosmetics, fashion, food & beverage, confectionary, wine & liquor, nutraceuticals, décor, smart packaging, protective packaging for special goods and eco-packaging.

The IPACK-Mat area will be set up in Pavilion 14, a central location at the fair, synergically contiguous to PLAST-Mat, a complementary project running parallel to the event PLAST 2018 that will be held in adjacent pavilions during the same time.

The common objective of these initiatives is to offer a gathering place for businesses providing or seeking advanced packaging design and production solutions (IPACKMat) and objects manufactured from innovative plastic materials (PLAST-Mat).

Both projects, whose content and setup will be coordinated, are being organized in partnership with Material ConneXion Italia, an important international research and consulting network in innovative and sustainable materials.
