ScanPack and Covid-19
According to Svenska Mässan Stiftelse, ScanPack 2021 has been postponed by a year due to the coronavirus pandemic. The organisers of the event had hoped to hold a live edition in October 2021, but after extended consultations with all stakeholders and partners, it was determined that doing so would be unwise and unsafe. In early October 2022, Scanpack will take place at the Svenska Mässan. The dates have been changed to October 4th through 7th. Due to COVID-19, numerous trade shows had to opt for digital alternatives. Yet, face-to-face trade shows remain a viable way for companies to network and drive business growth.
ScanPack is Northern Europe’s number one packaging exhibition and one of the primary markets to grow your business. The international exhibition has been running since 1964, so the brand is fully established and has a core audience built-in. As a result, you’re able to tap into a ready-made market, benefit from wide coverage and generate name recognition.
ScanPack oversees the entire value chain and one look over the product catalogue reveals innovations and product launches within packaging machinery and equipment, packaging materials, raw materials, digital printing presses, transport packs, RFID, biopack, computer-controlled equipment and dosing equipment
If you’re looking to create buzz for an upcoming product, then you can take part in the pitching sessions at the Turbo Talks, where you have two minutes to pitch your product to interested buyers. ScanPack is where you can also perform a deep analysis of the market for incoming trends.
ScanPack is based in Gothenburg, Sweden and the international exhibition is held every three years, usually in autumn, October to be precise. Editions run for four days and take place at the Svenska Mässan - The Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre. The Svenska Mässan Stiftelse, which runs the venue, also serves as the official organiser.
Doors are open only to professional visitors and working hours are from 09:00 am in the morning until 17:00 pm in the afternoon on the first three days. The last day opens at 10:00 am and concludes at 15:00 pm. You don’t need to think about renting a car to commute while in Gothenburg, because the exhibition centre is right in the heart of the city and you can easily walk to it, if you’re close enough. If not, you have three tram lines that stop directly at the grounds and airport bus service that also services Svenska Mässan.
What you can expect as an exhibitor

Audience & statistics
Let’s investigate the numbers from the last edition of ScanPack. Organisers reveal that over 500 exhibitors have showcased products at last edition and the halls handled over 17,000 trade visitors from over 40 countries. Although the exhibition focuses mainly on the Northern region of Europe (meaning there are a lot of people from Scandinavian countries as well as EU states), there is also interest from the rest of the world.
Exhibitors for instance come from the East as well – Turkey, Taiwan and Japan to name a few. As an exhibitor, you have every reason to go, because roughly 65% of all visitors are serious about making a purchase after the fair and you’re surrounded by a great concentration of decision makers. There are production managers, departmental managers and marketing managers everywhere.
You will also be happy with the diversity in industries as visitors come from the food and beverage, chemicals, corrugated board packaging, advertising and marketing, wholesale and retail, packaging and transportation sectors.
