ALL4PACK Paris 2020, new features and an analysis of major packaging trends and innovations

The trade show ALL4PACK Emballage Paris, which in November later this year will assemble a comprehensive offering (packaging, processing, printing and logistics), aims to make the forthcoming edition an avant-garde and unmissable event by showcasing the powerful innovation capabilities of the whole Packaging and Intralogistics ecosystem.

To specifically present the many innovations and tangible solutions offered by the packaging of today and tomorrow, special feature areas have been created to satisfy all the expectations of visitors.

Objective Zero Impact

The aim of this space is to promote meetings between the actors of change and allow everyone to prepare for the "post-Revolution". Visitors will thus be able to exchange with around thirty start-ups and other eco-aware market players offering innovative solutions, and attend a range of talks. Workshops will be held to develop ideas and concepts on various themes, including more sustainable packaging or the development of reusable shipping packaging for online retail.


This major event will offer visitors the opportunity to decipher emerging trends and discover new products in the sectors covered by the show. Visitors will also be able to discover the winners of ALL4PACK INNOVATIONS, a competition that rewards products, machines/equipment, services or manufacturing processes in the packaging, packaging and intralogistics sector that are new or use new technology resulting from research. There are five categories in the competition: Sustainable and Responsible Solution, Design and User-friendliness, Innovative Technology, Material of the Future and Logistical Performance. The award ceremony will take place on Tuesday, 24 November at 11:15 a.m. in Hall 7.

This year, the Innovation Area will also host the winners of the five partner competitions: Oscar de l'Emballage, Pack The Future, Emballé 5.0, SIAL Innovation and De Gouden Noot.

Visitors will also be able to visit the exclusive exhibition "Packaging: Leading its Revolution" presenting the latest packaging innovations and trends.

A programme of 27 talks

To complete its offering of expertise, the exhibition will offer a series of 27 talks and round tables, each in a given field, which will enable attendees to understand the new perspectives of standards and regulations, decipher trends to meet consumer requirements and find forward-looking solutions in sustainable machinery, materials and packaging. Topical issues will be addressed such as the packaging revolution (eco-design, circular economy, packaging end-of-life), solutions for sustainable logistics and machines in the context of industrial performance.

Optimising the visitor experience

ALL4PACK Emballage Paris 2020 is above all a matter of physical meetings and exchanges, but also an experience that everyone can enhance online through various services made available to visitors, such as the mobile application and its web platform. Attendees will be able to find practical information such as the interactive map of the show and the exhibitor and product lists; but virtual tech can be used to go further: business matchmaking, video meetings, participation in theme-based speed networking sessions, live streams of talks or start-up pitches, etc.
