The preparations for the ninth edition of the world’s premier fair are now beginning just over half a year after the most successful Metpack since the beginning of the event: From May 2 to 6, 2017, Messe Essen will again become the global meeting place of the international metal packaging industry.  A large number of participants may be expected: 95 percent of this year’s exhibitors have already announced that they want to be involved again in 2017.
