Trends and future topics at a glance
“It wouldn’t be enough if we were to offer our visitors ‘just’ world premieres, innovations and state-of-the-art solutions, and if the individual areas of application were depicted in our trade fair concept. drinktec also creates excitement through its global industry overview, which covers overarching trends and developments,” states Petra Westphal, Exhibition Director. In close cooperation with our advisory board and the VDMA, the professional support of drinktec, four main topics have been identified which will shape the industry in the years to come – including in terms of investment decisions:
- Sustainable Production & Packaging,
- Consumer Landscape & Product Design,
- Water & Water Management, and

Digital support for visiting the trade fair
Of course, efficiency is also a topic when it comes to visiting the trade fair. With the Solution Directory , drinktec offers a tool that enables all visitors to plan their visit specifically before they even arrive. It’s very easy to use: “Simply enter the problem that you would like to solve in your company. The software then assesses the suppliers offering products that are appropriate for this problem at their trade fair stand.” Visitors can therefore orient their journey around the grounds specifically to their investment demands well in advance of their visit to the trade fair.
But that’s not the only form of digital support. In the trade fair halls, visitors can gain additional guidance directly on site: The Innovation Guide is available to all those who don’t want to miss any important innovations. This tool informs visitors about all the suppliers showcasing innovations at their trade fair stands. It’s simple and easy to use via a mobile device.
