W.AG at the PRODEX 2019 and the P360°-Event

As a meeting point for the MEM industry (machines, electrical and metals industry) in Switzerland, the PRODEX took place in Basel from 14 to 17 May 2019. W.AG Funktion + Design GmbH has been exhibitor at the fair for the third time and presented its W.AG cases and service portfolio at booth 1.1 K11. The Swiss DIGIPACK KAPPELER joined us as co-exhibitor for the very first time. Together, a wide range of application examples were presented to the trade fair audience. Cases and boxes with screen printing, in-mold labeling and digital direct printing provided eye-catching attention at the trade fair booth. Inlay solutions made of hard and soft foam as well as thermoforming inserts completed the presentation.

High Up on Wolke 21

On 15 May 2019 the guests at the P360° events in Vienna were high up on cloud 21: the event location Wolke 21, a one-hundred-metre-high Saturn Tower, featuring a covered terrace and a large sky lobby, provided quite a scene for the guests. As a welcome gift each guest received a P360° give-away case, which is made of wood fiber-based organic plastic. The case contained gifts from each company and everyone’s attention was drawn to an in-mold labeling on the back of the plastic case, showing each member company. In addition to the terrific view of Vienna and the surrounding area, the location provided plenty of opportunities for networking.

As part of the event, the provocative theme “There is no such thing as Environment Friendly Packaging” a technical presentation was held by Ing. Michael Krainz, OFI Technology & Innovation GmbH from Vienna, on the topic “Requirements in Regards to Food Packaging – Reality, Ambitions and Outlook” followed by a round of discussion. Situations amidst topics of serious discussions require space for a sense of humor – hence the stage was set for the comedy duo Teatro Banal, a comical waiter team that helped create an appropriate backdrop for the event.

The W.AG team thanks all guests and trade fair visitors from Vienna and Basel for their great enthusiasm for our products and for the many interesting discussions.
