What are MP2022 awards?

The organizers of MP2022, AIMPLAS and AINIA, promote for this new edition of the event the granting of TWO AWARDS of sectoral relevance.

The MP2022 AWARDS aim to recognize innovations focused on the development of BARRIER PACKAGING SOLUTIONS AND SUSTAINABILITY that have been developed by professionals and organizations for application in the food industry. These innovations may be applicable to any of the areas of the sector: materials, packaging, equipment, processes…

In which categories can applications be submitted?

This first call for the awards raises two independent categories:

  • Flexible packaging oriented solutions (FILMS)

  • Solutions oriented to rigid packaging (TRAYS AND / OR BOTTLES)

At the discretion of the organizers of the event and in agreement with the organizations that have submitted their proposals, the possibility of showing the proposed solutions in a specific designated space in the stand area enabled at the venue of the event (Palacio de Congresos de Valencia) may be offered. The details of this space will be informed to the candidates once the deadline for submitting applications has closed and the interested parties are informed of the admission of their candidacies.

Who is elegible to apply?

The MP2022 AWARDS are aimed at companies (material manufacturers, film manufacturers, sheets, preforms, packaging, packaging equipment, recycling systems, packaging systems …) that through their innovations are contributing to the development of the sector with sustainable solutions.

The entity that submits candidacy must have, at least, a representative who participates as an attendee of the event.

What can submitting an application bring to you?

Admitted candidates may have designated space at the congress venue to exhibit a sample of their product or innovation. The manner and place in which this exhibition will be held will be informed to the candidates sufficiently in advance of the development of the event so that the necessary preparations can be adopted.

Special repercussion in the media may take place for those finalist candidacies and, especially, the two awarded candidacies.

Applications may be submitted until February 14, 2022.

How will the process of admission and evaluation of applications be carried out?

For this reason, the holder of the proposal and the representative, where appropriate, will be responsible for the legality of the proposal, exempting the Organization from any responsibilities that may arise from claims of third parties.The Organization reserves the right to withdraw, even as a preventive measure, any proposal submitted, without this implying any prejudgment of legality or derivation of responsibility to the Organization, unless, logically, there is intent in its action.

The presentation of proposals to the MP2022 awards implies the observance and acceptance of these Rules.
