Every three years the world’s leading packaging journalists gather at the interpack exhibition in Düsseldorf, Germany.

To mark the occasion, the International Packaging Press Organisation (IPPO) holds its famous party, where members and their guests can enjoy a night of hospitality and excellent networking.

As IPPO also holds its official Ordinary meeting during the show, the party is a chance, too, for both members and guests to meet the incoming President and other IPPO officers elected the day prior to the party.

This year the party returns to its old haunt, Brauerei Schumacher in the centre of the city and, as this venue produces its own ‘alt’ beer, a very jolly time is anticipated.

We are very grateful that several organisations sponsor this event so that IPPO can make it even better. Also, partygoers can enjoy the company of some of the world’s leading packaging associations and event organisers supporting the work and activities of packaging companies worldwide.

We thank our 2017 sponsors:


APEAL, the Association of European Producers of steel for packaging.


Ipack-Ima 2018, one of the world’s major global exhibitions for packaging, mechanical handling, food and non-food processing and other related industrial machinery.
