For those in the product packaging and processing business there was only one “place to be” from 4 to 10 May 2023: interpack in Düsseldorf. Under the heading “Welcome Home” the trade fair welcomed visitors from all over the world. The joy of finally coming together, after a 6 year break, as an industry was great.
Visitors from 155 countries came to interpack 2023. 2,807 exhibitors showcased the power and creativity of the packaging industry with their technologies and solutions and dtg were there in patriotic style. While the UK celebrated the coronation of King Charles III, dtg showed the rest of the world just what great British engineering looks like.
With chocolate kindly provided by Luker Chocolate, Chris Zammit - Culinary Artist of Sweet Bake Art, produced an outstanding chocolate sculpture to celebrate the coronation of King Charles III.
