10th packaging congress OBALKO, October 13–14, 2022


In the words of the attendees themselves...

What did attendees say about the congress OBALKO 7?

For the seventh time on the Cover and for the seventh great action. Inspirational spokesperson, lectures of people who have something to say and great atmosphere. For a long time, Obalko has been one of the top conferences and has once again defended its fame. Keep it up.

Petr Tichý, Head of Purchasing Department, Madeta

The whole congress was marked by digitization, which will pervade the whole of our society in the short term. Individual lecturers presented new tenders in the packaging industry. In the morning session, I was most impressed by the first lecturer, Jan Zadák, former president of services in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. In the afternoon program I was intrigued by a lecture by Petr Kaczor from THIMM PACK´N´DISPLAY and Blanka Pacovská from BIOPEKÁRNA ZEMANKA, who together presented Petr’s supplemental feed (corrugated cardboard display) and presented how a smaller organic food producer can work with an advanced packaging manufacturer.
In the packaging business mixer I had the opportunity to speak to Cornelia Fehlner, the director of the FachPack fair, who spoke brilliant Czech. The next day we visited the DataLine Digital Center (DDC) in Hořovice, where we introduced the latest digital technology in the packaging industry (digital printing and laser cutting of packaging). I am already looking forward to next year.

Every year, the Packaging Congress conquers a better and better reputation. This can be seen in the increasing number of packaging professionals participating and also in the growing number of interested parties from other fields. I have been attending the Obalko Congress for many years and has become an integral part of my October work.

The event was successful for us and we had a chance to meet a lot of interesting people and make meaningful contacts. The app was a nice bonus and catering intense.

Vít Boháček, Project Manager, IPSOS

We attended the OBALKO congress for the first time and were enthusiastic. The initial communication and helpfulness in addressing all our requirements was pleasant, and then it went on just as well: a smooth organization, an excellent selection of current topics and inspiring speakers, an interesting party for informal meetings with business partners and colleagues from other companies. I do not conceal that the awards we have received contributed to our great satisfaction 😉. It was a joy for us to find out that we can inspire others on the PACKAGE while being inspired.

Obalový kongres OBALKO je velmi zajímavou příležitostí prezentace nejnovějších trendů a technologií v obalovém průmyslu. Velmi oceňuji, že se postupně stává nedílnou součástí obalových strategií také aspekt udržitelnosti a posuzování vlivu potenciálních dopadů na životní prostředí. Vyzdvihuji také vysokou úroveň organizace celé akce a nominaci inspirativní řečníků z firem, které patří mezi leadery ve svých oborech.

What did attendees say about the congress OBALKO 6?

OBALKO is a nice place to meet business partners

“I try to visit the OBALKO congress regularly, because it offers participants the opportunity to get acquainted not only with trends in packaging but also with the real results of already implemented, often very unique, solutions. I also appreciate the contributions and insights of personalities from outside the packaging industry at the congress. And last but not least, the OBALKO congress is also a pleasant place to meet business partners and colleagues from other companies.”

Václav Oborník, Purchasing and Service Director, Mlékárna Hlinsko, a.s.

OBALKO was flawless!

“I would like to compliment you on the OBALKO congress and the whole organization of this event. It was flawless! For our company, the congress was very interesting, not only in terms of presentations but also the breakdown of visitors. The icing on the cake was the victory of our gift package in the Packstar 2018 competition.”

Iva Švédová Janíčková, Marketing, (G.N.P.)

OBALKO is an opportunity to learn about new trends in the packaging market

“The OBALKO congress is an opportunity for me to learn about new trends in the packaging market. I also appreciate the opportunity to meet with different packaging solution suppliers to inspire me.”

Michal Tkadlec, Marketing Director, MP Krásno

I like to visit ATOZ conferences very much

“I like to visit ATOZ events and conferences in general. This year’s OBALKO left me feeling good, because the main topic was modernization and ecology. Excellent organization and interesting contacts, and even the evening in Mexican style surprised me!”

Libor Zajíček, Business Development Manager EMEA, RRD Supply Chain Solutions

OBALKO is an event for which I find time every year

“OBALKO is a high-quality congress for which I find the time every year and to which I look forward. Most of the presentations are interesting, informative and inspiring for me. It’s great how the organizers manage to attract quality speakers to OBALKO. For example, I still remember the amazing presentation of Eva Jiřičná. This year’s OBALKO was especially impressive because of its main topic, because SUSTAINABILITY and ECOLOGY have been extremely important to us at Manufaktura in recent years. We strive to act responsibly and considerably in this respect, and any further impetus we can make in this area is enriching for us. In addition, for the second time, the congress day was beautifully finished in the form of a victory in the Packstar packaging competition, which we won. I am already looking forward to next year and I am curious to see what the OBALKO will surprise us with.”

Bára Čechová, Creative Director, Manufaktura
