With nearly 700 exhibiting companies showcasing solutions over 15,000 square meters of sold-out exhibit space, this year’s event marks the largest in its history. 

After a four-year hiatus, EXPO PACK Guadalajara brings together packaging and processing professionals from more than 40 vertical markets, to explore the latest trends and advancements in packaging and processing technology, all under one roof.

"We are thrilled to bring this prestigious exhibition back to Guadalajara, a vibrant city known for its manufacturing prowess and forward-thinking mindset. This event will serve as a catalyst for growth and collaboration within the packaging and processing industry, fostering connections that will drive the future of packaging and processing in the region and beyond." 

EXPO PACK Guadalajara features a comprehensive exhibit hall, where exhibitors present a wide range of cross-over solutions spanning packaging, processing, and logistics, all in one place.
