Packaging innovation sets up home in France

Pioneering the latest trends, ALL4PACK INNOVATIONS is a source of inspiration, expertise and the latest insights for visitors.

At each successive edition of ALL4PACK, the packaging and intralogistics sector demonstrates its knowhow, potential and assets to fulfil market requirements.

ALL4PACK INNOVATIONS is a feature which more specifically reveals products or machines with innovative characteristics.

Curtain up on the 2020 edition

With its brand-new layout, ALL4PACK INNOVATIONS plunges you into the future of packaging and logistics.


Divided into three separate spaces, this area will play host to:

  • The winners of the ALL4PACK INNOVATIONS competition,
  • The exhibition “Packaging: Leading its Revolution” displaying the latest trends by material, selected by Fabrice Peltier and Xavier Terlet,
  • French and international innovations picked out by the show’s partner competitions.

This must-visit feature will offer visitors the chance to decipher and analyse trends in packaging, processing, printing and logistics and discover the new products that will be on show in the exhibition.


This offers a prime showcase to machinery/equipment, services and manufacturing processes. All exhibitors are allowed to take part and enter their product or service in one of five categories:

  • Sustainable and responsible solution
  • Design and user-friendliness
  • Innovative technology
  • Material of the future
  • Logistical performance

The awards ceremony will take place on Tuesday 24 November at 11.15 am on the conference stage in Hall 7.
