The all-day congress is the ideal place to discuss the current state of the packaging industry, news and trends. It provides participants with the chance to make new contacts or get inspiration for their future steps in packaging and technology.

What makes up the OBALKO congress:


The main part of the OBALKO congress is an all-day conference consisting of morning and afternoon sections. The morning session starts with a brief introduction and is followed by joint presentations and a panel discussion. The afternoon program of the congress is divided into three sections – marketing and two technological. The marketing part of the program is devoted to topics such as increasing sales through packaging, redesign of packaging and other marketing topics. One technology section focuses on topics such as robotics and packaging automation, while the other covers transport packaging, identification and packaging labeling.


Bizpack is a system of 10-minute speed-dating meetings at lunch time. Partners and congress participants can express their interest in meeting with the other party. Partners will be able to choose from registration lists while participants will be provided with information brochures sent to them before the congress.


After the conference, the ceremonial announcement of the OBAL ROKU packaging contest will take place. You will learn which packaging solutions have been evaluated as the best in several competition categories. More information about the competition can be found here.


The program and participant mix of the congress offers the ideal environment for building relationships with existing and potential clients. After a busy conference day, the Packing Business Mixer is ready with a rich program that offers the perfect opportunity for networking in an informal, relaxed atmosphere. You can continue the discussions from the conference over a drink or a plate of tasty food or start a whole new discussion.


Packaging in action offers a unique opportunity to visit the manufacturing plants of selected congress partners with expert commentary. Visitors will have the chance to see the entire production process and better understand the benefits of these products and the issue at the same time, giving them a second chance to discuss packaging issues with industry professionals and colleagues.
