Guten Tag from Düsseldorf, where Berlin Packaging is attending Interpack, the world's largest packaging industry trade fair. Every three years nearly a quarter of a million attendees from 125 countries visit exhibitors showing new technologies, materials and equipment. This year the show's 2,700 exhibits occupy 17 multi-level buildings at the Messe Düsseldorf spanning 40 linear miles of show aisles.
Andrew Berlin, Glenn Scott and I have been at the show since Wednesday, meeting with several suppliers' and customers' senior management teams from morning to night each day. In addition to finding a number of new innovations in a wide array of categories, we've found products and capabilities that will have immediate application to current customer projects.
