Innovation Day 2022

May 18, Packworld, Oberwaltersdorf
The packaging industry is dynamic and constantly evolving. Requirements for packaging have changed dramatically in recent years and will continue to do so. Consumers and legislation call for sustainable packaging solutions, but products themselves are also changing and require different kinds of protection as well as dynamic presentation on market shelves.

Innovation and transformation will be key to fulfilling all these changing requirements in a sustainable way!

During our Innovation Day we will explore how to become fit for the packaging future – on May 18, 2022. The event will be held as a physical one in our Packworld venue in Oberwaltersdorf, near Baden bei Wien.



Doors of Packworld will open at 09.00 a.m. We are happy to welcome you for a cup of morning coffee. Information about the currently valid Corona rules will be sent to you in good time in advance via e-mail. During the whole day we will open our exhibition area at Packworld for you. Feel free to get in touch with our colleagues and learn about our latest innovations.

How to become a future-proof company? Approach no. 1: Recognizing challenges and facing up to changing conditions

The entire day of the event will revolve around how companies can contribute to greater sustainability through innovation and transformation. In the first panel discussion in the morning, Manfred Stanek, Fred Luks and Helmut Maurer will discuss the most urgent challenges and changed framework conditions companies currently have to face. Above all, EU directives have played a major role. The questions will be discussed as to how to deal with the more difficult conditions of the past two years and what solutions are available so that companies can remain successful despite crises.

Your physical well-being will be taken care of. We invite you to a tasty lunch on the second floor. After the meal, our Greiner Packaging experts will be very pleased to be at your disposal for a joint visit to the exhibition area.
