IPACK-IMA –  to be held in Milan from 27 to 30 May 2025 – is the international exhibiton which represents an ideal stage for complete offer of cutting-edge materials, technologies and solutions in processing and packaging aimed at the entire consumer and durable goods industries.

An highly specialized international fair where innovation, sustainability and technology come together, thanks to the identity and strategic partnerships with the industry that has been part of Ipack Ima‘s DNA since its first edition in 1961. Each edition of IPACK-IMA is attended by more than 1.400 exhibitors and 74,000 visitors, including 18,500 non-domestic players from 146 different Countries.

A not-to-be missed appointment for market professionals, with the entire food and non-food industries represented by well designed Business Communities which highlight the exhibition’s target markets: Pasta, Bakery & Milling; Sweets, Confectionary & Snacks; Food, Fresh & Convenience; Liquid Food & Beverage; Pharma & Nutritional; Beauty & Personal Care; Chemicals & Home Care; Industrial & Durable Goods.

In addition to technologies for all these sectors, a special focus will be devoted to primary, secondary and tertiary packaging materials, which will be well represented at the show by over 200 companies operating in this segment. IPACK-Mat is the IPACK-IMA brand that will make these companies easily identifiable. In a special area strategically located in Hall 5, they will propose smart or eco-design-inspired packaging and solutions.

Special attention will be paid to sustainability and materials in contact with foodstuffs. The issue of packaging is constantly confronted with that of product safety and preservation, to which IPACK-IMA, in cooperation with the Italian Packaging Institute, dedicates the special area Ipack-Ima Lab, looking at research laboratories, certification institutes and centres specialised in FCM compliance standards.

IPACK-IMA will also host the Best Packaging Awards organised by the Italian Packaging Institute, to promote the innovation offered by the Italian packaging industry, as well as the awards ceremony of the prestigious WorldStar event, the Global Packaging Awards promoted by the World Packaging Organisation (WPO) which collects every year more than 300 entries from over 34 countries, and that will reward during IPACK-IMA 2022 the continuous improvement in packaging design, green packaging and technology.
