We meet again at Hispack 2022


CATEGORY: JAVIER ZABALETA, managing director of itene

It has been four years since we last met at the Hispack trade fair. Four years that have brought about many changes in ITENE, which has continued to grow, and multiple transformations in the world of packaging, which has suffered, like everyone else, the vicissitudes of the pandemic and the current international scene.

If there is one thing we have learned in this time, it is that packaging is a key player, and this will be palpable in the atmosphere of this edition of the fair. It was worth the wait, because Hispack had to be postponed several times, but it is now being held in a context of greater normality in which we can meet again with greater security and, moreover, with a great desire to see each other again.


This event, with more than 600 exhibiting companies, will be held in Barcelona from 24 to 27 May. It is undoubtedly a great success for Fira Barcelona and the organizing committee, and ITENE, as a member of this committee and as an exhibitor ITENE research centre, confirms once again its commitment with Hispack as a reference exhibition for packaging in Spain and Southern Europe.


I invite you to meet us again at stand B159 in Hall 2, where we will show the whole packaging journey under the prism of circular economy and the services and solutions that ITENE provides to companies. Moreover, as a novelty, in collaboration with Hispack, we are going to carry out a series of interviews on 24 and 25 May, under the title SUSTAINTALKS by ITENE. If you want to know how leading companies in the packaging value chain are making the transition to the circular economy, you cannot miss them.


I also encourage you to participate on May 26th in a very relevant conference organized by Packnet with focus on the compliance with the new environmental objectives linked to the Royal Decree on Packaging and Packaging Waste.

This edition coincides with a time of expansion of our centre, which today has 180 professionals with whom we offer companies cutting-edge knowledge and technology to companies, which are our raison d'être. This commitment to the sector has led us to organise 173 events in the period 2020-2021 with 7,800 attendees from 1,800 companies and generate a portfolio of 1,600 clients.


I would also like to thank ITENE's partners for their support to our research activity and I encourage you to join our research centre and contribute to the development of packaging for a safer and more sustainable future world.


See you at Hispack 2022!
