Packaging Cluster celebrates 10 years of growth and support for its shareholders.
The Cluster of Packaging, a non-profit organization that represents businesses of all sizes in the packaging industry, is celebrating its twentieth anniversary since its creation.
The cluster began its journey in October 2012 and, a decade later, has 130 members of a sector that is growing and gaining weight in the country's economy (in Catalonia, it accounts for 4% of the PIB).
In this time, the Cluster has nearly doubled its number of shareholders, rising from 27 to 130 in a sector with 723 verified businesses in Catalonia.
A growth that can be seen in the group, which has grown from one member to eight people managing more than 46 collaborative innovation projects at the national and international levels, in addition to proposals that have already been presented.
Annually, the Packaging Cluster organizes 40 activities just for its members and the dissemination of knowledge about the industry and the trends that shape its pace, in addition to participating in prestigious trade shows and conferences such as Empack and Hispack.
Packaging Cluster will celebrate its twentieth anniversary on December 1st, with an event that will serve as a meeting point for the packaging industry, with around 200 guests, a gala dinner, and several surprises.
The event will take place at the Hotel Gallery in Barcelona and will begin at 18.30 p.m. with a welcome drink. The institutional opening will be led by Sr. Albert Castellanos, the Generalitat of Catalonia's Secretary of Enterprise and the current delegate of ACCIO.
Among the planned events will be a look back at the organization's history, as well as awards for companies that have demonstrated a commitment to innovation, collaboration, and sector transformation.
After the formal half, the invited/as will have a gala dinner and celebrate all of the work done in the last several years to make the packaging industry a symbol of progress and skill.
