Message from the President

Japan Packaging Machinery Manufacturers Association

Japan Packaging Machinery Manufacturers Association is pleased to announce that it will host "JAPAN PACK 2023" for four days from the 3rd (Tuesday) to the 6th (Friday) in October 2023 at Tokyo Big Sight.

JAPAN PACK is a major event where cutting-edge devices, technologies, and services in packaging and related industries with users and buyers from around the world come together once every two years. It has an excellent reputation among exhibitors and visitors as a large-scale event where participants can find various state-of-the-art products for a wide range of production processes such as processing, pharmaceutical, filling, packing, printing, inspection, and packaging in the entire manufacturing line of foods, pharmaceutical/cosmetics, daily goods, industrial products, etc. At the last exhibition (held in February 2022), where 299 businesses and institutions participated amid the COVID-19 pandemic, we further felt the importance of the packaging industry’s role in creating a sustainable society and reconfirmed the significance of our exhibition.

The theme of JAPAN PACK 2023 is “Packaging Formula to the Future – Beyond the Conventional.” Through this event, we wish to offer solutions, such as the “Packaging Formula,” to cope with challenges in the production, distribution, consumption, disposal, and recycling of various daily necessities and contribute to the future prosperity of packaging and related industries as well as their user industries. Meanwhile, we also want to deliver the message that packaging is becoming more indispensable than ever before. It serves as a key player not only for promoting automation and improving productivity in the supply chain but also for realizing a sustainable society. This wish of ours is included in the theme.

At the venue, through various exhibits with a central focus on packaging machinery and materials, we propose solutions to urgent issues such as manpower shortage, manufacturing/logistic cost, energy/resource saving, security and safety, hygiene, and response to the New Normal with/after COVID-19, and then create value for stakeholders such as improving productivity and promoting sustainability. Besides, we will cohost diverse special events including theme-based exhibits, special lecture sessions, and special seminars while actively engaging in public relations activities and fully utilizing digital content to help business matching develop into business interaction.

We are confident that JAPAN PACK 2023, our third exhibition that will be held at East Exhibition Halls, Tokyo Big Sight after 2017, would be the best stage for you to conduct effective PR activities and find new business and branding opportunities. We look forward to seeing you at JAPAN PACK 2023.
