The arrangement of the works on special stands can attract the visitor’s attention to the subtleties of packaging design and show the various abilities of designers.
A review of the statistics of visitors to previous exhibitions, shows that most of the people who have visited the packaging biennial are producers or representatives of employers, who often came to the biennial with the aim of discovering talents and finding creative designers.
Visitors are groups of students involved in packaging design. Numerous communications and conversations take place during the exhibition, which are very effective, and some of them lead to the formation of various collaborations in different fields.
