After arguably the worst year in our entire lives, we are slowly building a new normal – where vaccinated people can travel, return to their offices and attend professional events and consumer trade fairs. As logistics experts, we are happy to inform you of the most interesting logistics and packaging events in 2021, which will be hosted in person, and not online.
Why Do We Care about Logistics and Packaging Events in 2021?
In the previous years, we thought it would be useful to let our customers and readers know about industry events. This year, this article has a more special meaning to us. It is like the first spring flower, announcing better days to come.
And it is a celebration of the resilience of everyone involved in the packaging industry, from R&D teams to sales agents, who learned new ways of working while staying safe and protecting their families and friends.
Now, we can meet again, exchange information and knowledge, establish new partnership and rebuild our businesses. This is what the reopening of professional events in the logistics and packaging sector truly means for all of us.
Our List of Recommendations
Given our involvement in business across the EU territory, we selected only logistics and packaging events taking place in Europe.
1. The Global Plastics Industry Seminar Europe
Period: September 09, 2021

2. Packaging Innovations 2021
Period: September 15-16, 2021
Organizer: Targi w Krakowie
Venue: Warszawskie Centrum EXPO Xxi, Warsaw, Poland
This is one of the logistics and packaging events in 2021 we are most interested in. While working from home disrupted the usual R&D efforts, they did not cease. The packaging industry has come up with new technologies, new products and solutions that companies need to store and ship their goods in a safe, economic and space saving manner.
The trade fair will have specialized sections for:
- General purpose packaging
- Packaging for ecommerce
- Packaging machines
- Luxury packaging
- Ecological packages.
Most of the attendants are decision makers in companies that need returnable plastic packaging solutions, so this is a huge opportunity to network and form partnerships.

5. Pharmapak Europe 2021

This last entry on our list of logistics and packaging events in 2021 will have a hybrid format: you can attend in person, or watch the demonstrations and keynote presentations online.
