RosUpack, the main packaging exhibition in Russia, to take place from 18–22 June

The Russian packaging industry is the tenth-largest packaging market in the world, with a value of US$17.4 billion in 2011. It was also the eighth-fastest-growing packaging market in the world during the last 10 years period. The main reasons for this rapid growth were the substantial investments into the industry from both domestic and foreign packaging manufacturers and the country’s huge domestic raw material reserves. The key end users which generated demand for the Russian packaging industry during the review period were the food, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, personal care and pharmaceutical markets. Russian paper and board packaging exports accounted for 40% of the total domestic production in 2010. The industry is now focusing on developing new capabilities to meet the export demand for specialty papers. There are currently no waste management laws in place to govern the Russian packaging industry. As such, the adherence to new waste management laws and subsequent establishment of systems to minimize packaging waste will provide new challenges for packaging manufacturers over the forecast period.

RosUpack, the main packaging exhibition in Russia, will take place on 18–22 of June in Pavilion 75 at All-Russian Exhibition Centre (VVC), Moscow. The exhibition has been holding since 1996 and annually brings together main domestic and international leaders of the packaging industry. RosUpack has gained the right to be called the largest packaging exhibition in Russia, the CIS and Eastern Europe.

During the years of its activity RosUpack has gained high international prestige: this is the most titled packaging event in Russia (it has awards from RUEF, UFI, COPE, PAC, FEFCO and ULADE). RosUpack is supported by the Moscow City Government, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation, the Moscow Chamber of Commerce and Industry, PACKMASH Association and National Packaging Confederation (NCPack).

For the convenience of visitors and participants the exposition is grouped according to the following themes: Equipment, Packaging, Containers, Raw and expendable materials, Labeling, Logistics and warehousing. For specialists annual business program of the exhibition includes conferences, seminars, roundtables and presentations.
