swop 2024

swop - The show with all the content.

The packaging industry is essential to all other industry sectors. It's impossible to think of any product without the sometimes highly complex manufacturing processes behind it – however large or small the company or product might be. All industry sectors require intelligent packaging strategies along the entire value chain, encompassing warehousing, logistics and even administration. The widespread global relevance of the areas covered by swop and the high calibre of both exhibitors and visitors make swop in China every one year the go-to international event for a highly knowledgeable specialist audience.

Join the interpack alliance and make a new appearance

Besides interpack itself - the flagship trade fair that gives this family its name - the interpack alliance will span all international events staged by Messe Düsseldorf under its processing & packaging portfolio. The interpack alliance emerged out of interpack's world leading processing and packaging fairs to enable networking and sharing of expertise between interpack and swop.  As a member of the interpack alliance, swop will benefit from this too.
