Packcontact, where food and packaging meet


Packcontact is the ideal networking event for packaging specialists and food companies.

During the trade fair, you discover the newest solutions offered by the packaging industry to address the challenges faced by food manufacturers. Packcontact is not a traditional trade fair. Its strength lies in its small scale, the personal contacts, the focus on primary packaging for food products, and the broad network of regional stakeholders from both sectors. 
On 25 April 2019, the second edition of Packcontact brought 32 packaging specialists, each with their own booth, into contact with 170 visitors. The place-to-be was the 'House of Food' located in Roeselare in the middle of West Flanders. The increase in the number of exhibitors at the trade fair was more than a success, in turn supporting the growing interest in targeted networking events. As a result, the next edition of Packcontact will take place at Kortrijk Xpo on 23 & 24 September. 
From 2020, Packcontact will become a biennial event with a professional profile linked to the two-day Intrafood trade fair (which runs simultaneously). The original focus on primary packaging for food products and the networking aspect will be maintained. We expect around 60 exhibitors from Belgium, the southern Netherlands and northern France offering a variety of packaging solutions. The trade fair will also provide the region’s food companies with an overview of new packaging solutions for their existing or future food products, plus fascinating lectures explaining the challenges and innovations in the food packaging landscape. This trade fair is an event not to be missed!
