Andina Pack 2021 a huge success

Committed to the reactivation of the sector, Andina Pack has been the host of more than 173 exhibitors in the food, beverage, pharmaceutical and cosmetic sectors in Bogotá, Colombia.

Andina Pack, the leading Processing and Packaging trade show in the Andean Region, Central America, and the Caribbean, took place 9-12 November in Bogotá, Colombia, bringing together the latest innovations in technology after a year marked by the pandemic. The technological innovations presented to 14,000 trade professionals were distributed across the following industry sectors covering the entire value chain in the production of food and pharmaceuticals: ingredients, processing technology packaging, intra coordination, food safety, printing, and labeling.

Once again, exhibitors highlighted Andina Pack to be a show with excellent quality clients, many machines sold onsite, which boosted business throughout the week.

The comprehensive depiction of all process steps from the processing of the raw materials through to the finished product is one of the key reasons why Andina Pack is the most complete exhibition in Latin America. With the launch of its ingredients sector in 2021, Andina Pack has kept its brand promise of targeting all industry needs in the production process of food and pharma.

Andina Pack 2021 over exceeded expectations after a year of pandemic, with more than 173 exhibitors, 37 % of them international.

Its event programme with special showcases and congresses, like its food processing and packaging summit and a specialized area in ingredients has helped attendees transform their business and benefit from outstanding contacts.

“As organisers, we have been amazed by the incredibly positive response from the industry. The feedback from our exhibitors and visitors has been incredibly positive from day one, confirming the importance of face – to face exhibitions compared to other kind of events.
Andina Pack 2021 had even more leads at this show and more all-around quality engagement with attendees than our last edition before the pandemic. Our next edition will take place 14 – 17 November of 2023 and we hope to over exceed all expectations,” says Christian Guarin, Managing Director Koelnmesse Colombia.

“For us, participating in Andina Pack 2021 meant supporting the economic reactivation of an industry, which, although it has been affected by the pandemic, has managed to stay firm has sought to adapt through technology and innovation to meet the needs of the sector” says Fabio Rios, General Director of Ulma.
