From the show floor: Processing and packaging innovations at drinktec 2022
A total of 1,002 exhibitors from 55 countries attended last week with nearly 50,000 visitors coming from around the globe.
Last held in 2017, the show returned after pandemic disruption and other global uncertainties. “The preparations for this year’s event really were something of a rollercoaster ride," said drinktec director Petra Westphal. "The effects of the pandemic and geopolitical tensions have resulted in volatile framework conditions and uncertainties. And suddenly the first trade fair day is there. The world meets here with us in Munich after five years. The joy of getting together again is indescribable."
Overall exhibitors presented more than 700 new products and solutions, alongside the best of their existing portfolios.
drinktec will return in autumn 2025 with the date TBC.
