Tokyo Pack 2014Asia’s premier packaging exhibition Tokyo Pack 2014 is set to open in less than a month, and will feature some of the most innovative packaging solutions to meet today’s demanding consumer needs. Special services will also be available at the show to assist foreign visitors.

Next Generation High Performance Packaging Pavilion

One of the highlights of this year’s show edition is the Next Generation High Performance Packaging Pavilion, which will feature breakthrough packaging solutions that take extended product shelf life to new levels, highlight environmentally-friendly packages, and new decoration and print technology solutions.
Some of the unique packaging that will be showcased include a special sprout-integrated pouch for beverage and liquid food from Japan’s EcodPack Co. Ltd., designed to reduce packaging weight and save on raw material usage. Liquid products can be dispensed by squeezing the pouch, and a special mechanism prevents air from flowing into the pack – protecting the product. Liquid food products can also be easily dispensed without any clogging of solid food particles. 
PopPack LLC from the USA has chosen to exhibit for the first time at Tokyo Pack 2014, and will demonstrate its special reclosable PopPack bubble solution at the Pavilion. PopPack offers a safe and quick way of opening and reclosing flexible packages with an engaging “popping” sound that provides assurance that the package contents are fresh, well-sealed and have not been tampered with. With this easy-to-use product, PopPack hopes to find business partners at Tokyo Pack to help introduce this exciting packaging technology to the Japanese market. 

Overseas Visitor Services 

Recognizing that negotiating the business-language barrier can be a daunting task for the non-Japanese speaking overseas visitor, Tokyo Pack 2014 has devised a system where English-speaking visitors can avoid wasting time asking “can you speak English?” Booths will display a special “English speaker available” sign where business discussions can comfortably take place in English.
In addition, staff at the “Foreign Visitor” desk at the International Lounge will be on-hand to assist foreign visitors with any enquires they may have, and guide them to exhibits showcasing the packaging solutions and technologies they are sourcing for.
