drinktec 2022: Preview – Solutions for Every Process
The long dry spell we have lived through has only intensified the industry’s thirst for the upcoming drinktec, the world’s largest trade fair focused on beverages and liquid foods. The trade fair will finally be able to open its doors to attendees and exhibitors from September 12 to 16, 2022.
Even if the record numbers for the last drinktec in 2017 are not likely this year, Petra Westphal, Exhibition Director of drinktec, Messe München, is nevertheless expecting the halls to be bustling with visitors: 1200 exhibitors from more than 70 countries can look forward to greeting 65,000 attendees from more than 170 countries.
And the quality is also spot-on. There are four major themes to this year’s drinktec: first, sustainable packaging and production, second, water and water management, third, digitalization and digital solutions, and finally, the consumer world and product design. The trade fair addresses the entire production chain from raw materials to finished products at the POS, including containers, packaging and logistics. “For every process, no matter what kind of beverage and liquid food production, the exhibitors at the drinktec offer innovative solutions – from filling and packaging technology to all associated components, such as pumps, piping systems, cleaning and analysis methods to process control systems. There is an area at the exhibition set aside for the process technology specific to malt and beer production. We have also dedicated one area to the entire PET industry. Solutions for the hotel industry, gastronomy and point of sale round out the exhibition,” emphasizes Markus Kosak, Exhibition Manager at drinktec. We can therefore expect a program that is as vibrant as it is all-encompassing.
Our drinktec preview was created as a tool to help you efficiently prepare for the trade fair. First of all, the hall map on page 4 provides an overview of where to find exhibitors belonging to a particular segment of the industry. Within a single hall, the exhibitors offering their products and services are arranged in alphabetical order.
We wish you a successful and rewarding experience at the drinktec!
