About SVI Switzerland
The Swiss Packaging Institute SVI, founded in 1963, is the packaging material-neutral association of the Swiss packaging industry (annual turnover over CHF 6.5 billion; 400 companies; 25,000 employees). The SVI represents the entire “life cycle” of packaging and acts as a partner between authorities, the media, consumers and the packaging industry.
“Companies in the packaging industry are increasingly facing international competition from products and services. From my point of view, this fair offers the Swiss packaging industry the ideal setting to showcase its innovations, cultivate existing contacts and establish new partnerships at national level. For a comparatively cost-intensive country like Switzerland, success depends to a large extent on the innovative strength and quality of its products as well as on the know-how of its employees. As the umbrella organisation of the Swiss packaging industry, we will be specifically seeking an exchange with the industry members at the trade fair in order to recruit new members and present our broad further training programme. With a two-day lecture programme, we also want to be a platform for mutual exchange and important technical input.”
“I have been coming to the Swiss Packaging Fair in various functions for around 20 years. In 2019 I will be there for the first time as SVI Managing Director and look forward to many good discussions with existing and potential members of our association. The SVI offers various further training courses with which we supply the packaging industry with specialists and managers. We would like to promote this intensively. I am also looking forward to a very exciting and varied supporting programme, which I expect will provide me with interesting encounters and certainly controversial, but also inspiring discussions with experts from the industry.”
