12th packaging congress OBALKO, October 17–18, 2024


Full-day conference program

The joint morning session on the main topic of the congress

Like each year, the morning program of the conference will be focused on the main topic of the current edition. This year, we will focus on the tsunami of disruptions affecting the packaging industry – European and local regulations, growing and ever-changing consumer demands, skyrocketing costs that threaten our bottom line, disruptive technical and technological changes that force us to constantly innovations, or the ongoing lack of employees. You can look forward to a well-known keynote speaker, presentations by packaging experts and a top-to-top panel discussion featuring Czech and Slovak business leaders.

The joint afternoon program: Packaging best practices

The entire afternoon part of the conference is dedicated to packaging best practices – the best case studies from the Czech and Slovak packaging markets. New this year is that the entire program is together, so participants do not need to choose which presentation to see. And if by chance the given presentation does not interest the participant, there will be the space to network, catch up on emails or have a bite to eat or drink a coffee.

Rich accompanying program

BizPACK: New contacts in 10 minutes

The goal of the BizPACK program is to mediate meetings between the partners and participants of the OBALKO congress. Listen briefly and without obligation to the offer of leading companies in the packaging industry. One meeting will last 10 minutes, and if you are interested in the offer, you can arrange a follow-up meeting.

Obal roku ceremony: Awards for the best packaging

A unique opportunity to see the best packaging at the best packaging congress. A unique chance to meet all packaging experts in one place at one time. The ceremony will take place after the end of the professional part of the congress program. Thanks to the connection between the OBALKO congress and the Obal roku (Packaging of the Year) ceremony, there will be more participants than ever before. The event has a truly international reach thanks to the connection with the WorldStar Packaging Awards.

Packaging Business Mixer: The chance to network

After a demanding conference day, the Packaging Business Mixer, with its rich program, will provide the perfect setting for networking. Over a drink and a plate of tasty food, you can continue the discussions started during the conference day or start a whole new discussion.

Packaging in action: A behind-the-scenes look at production

We encounter packaging at every turn, but how well do we really understand it? OBALKO offers a unique opportunity to visit the production plants of selected congress partners with expert interpretation. You will not only get a chance to see the whole production process and better understand the benefits of such products, but you will also get a second chance to discuss issues related to the packaging industry.
