IPACK-IMA consolidates in the food & beverage sector and renews in the chemical-pharmaceutical sector

A single exhibition, the expression of a synergy built on the demand for packaging and processing technologies.

From May 3 to 6, 2022, the concurrence between IPACK-IMA - the most important international trade fair of the year for processing and packaging solutions - and the seventh edition of Pharmintech will make Milan the key meeting point for the lifescience industries, from pharmaceutical to parapharmaceutical, from nutraceutical to cosmeceutical, from medical devices to biotechnology.

Several key players in the sector, both national and foreign, have already confirmed their presence at the event, among which we quote Abar, Bausch+Stroebel, Comecer, Cos.mec, Eurpack, Freund Vector, Ima, Kaye, Manes, Marchesini Group, MG2, G.B. Gnudi, Glatt, Neumo Egmo Spain, Sea Vision, Antares Vision, Omas Tecnosistemi, Officine Meccaniche F.lli Ronchi, Soitra, Techfarma, Uhlmann.

Pharmintech, which maintains the patronage of AFI (Associazione Farmaceutici Industria), is the synthesis of a market with extraordinary performances, reflecting its positive trend. On a global level, in fact, the pharmaceutical sector alone, which in 2020 expressed a value of 1,100 billion euros, is expected to grow by an average of 6.1% per year by 2024 (source: Ipack Ima Business Monitor in collaboration with MECS).

In this context of growth, the event will give attention to all components of the value chain: advanced solutions for processing, packaging, instrumentation, clean rooms, applications for plant management and supply chain, as well as digital and automation technologies applied to lifescience. A rich calendar of events, focused on trends and innovation, completes an event designed to broaden business opportunities, to the benefit of the three communities “Pharma & Nutritional”, “Beauty & Personal Care” and “Chemicals & Home Care”, which will give life in Hall 2 to the Pharmintech version “powered by IPACK-IMA”, thus enhancing their identity.
