At the constituent meeting of the Advisory Board of interpack, the world's leading trade fair for processing & packaging, the chairman and his two deputies were confirmed in their positions. The Advisory Board thus sends a clear signal of continuity and emphasizes the importance of Interpack's close ties with the packaging industry.

As a key player in representing the industry's interests and driving innovation and growth, interpack is set to make a significant impact. The upcoming edition, scheduled from 7 to 13 May 2026, will be guided by a 21-member trade fair advisory board. Comprising leading figures from the packaging sector and related process industry, this board will play a pivotal role in shaping the future of interpack.

At the constituent meeting on 9 April 2024, Markus Rustler, president and chief executive officer of Theegarten-Pactec, was re-elected as the president and chairman of the Board. Christian Traumann, managing director of the MULTIVAC Group, and Roland Straßburger, chief executive officer of SCHÜTZ, were also confirmed as vice presidents. This unanimous election underscores the unity and shared vision of the Advisory Board.

"I would like to thank you for your trust in me and look forward to continuing this task. Our common goal is to build on the success of interpack 2023 and to strengthen the 2026 trade fair further as a trend, technology, and solution platform to meet the opportunities presented by dynamic market changes proactively," said Markus Rustler after re-election.

"The personal dialogue with our partners from the companies and associations is of enormous value to us - especially in times of great challenges. We are very pleased about the extraordinary expertise and the trusting cooperation in our Advisory Board," said interpack director Thomas Dohse at the end of the meeting.

The first meeting of the trade fair advisory board marks the beginning of the concrete content preparation phase for the next edition of interpack in May 2026. This phase will see the determination of the main themes of the trade fair, which will be announced in the coming months. The world's most important suppliers of packaging machinery and processing technology, packaging materials and packaging aids, packaging production, finishing and packaging printing, marking and labeling technology, as well as storage, logistics, and transport technology, are expected to exhibit once again.

The supplier trade fair "components" will again be organized parallel to interpack at a central location in the exhibition center.
