THAILAND • The 6th International Packaging and Printing Exhibition for Asia, which took place 18-21 September at Bangkok, welcomed a record-breaking 17,452 visitors from 59 countries this year from a wide range of end-user industries.
With 300 exhibitors from 25 countries and national groups from Germany, Taiwan, China, Thailand, and for the first time, Singapore, the bustling show floor included brand names from around the world as well as some of the best local players, all bringing to the forefront the future ready theme of packaging and printing 4.0.
The four-day trade exhibition included insightful market information and trending developments in the packaging and printing industries via concurrent conferences, seminars and forums attended by over 800 industry professionals and specialists.
Achieving a 20% increase in visitor attendance over the 2015 edition, the strong turn-out by international visiting delegations from China, India, Indonesia, Myanmar, Taiwan, and Vietnam as well as visits from 48 local printing and packaging groups proved Pack Print International’s relevance and appeal for machine distributors, packaging and printing service providers, licensing manufacturers and finished goods producers. This year’s visitor profile ranges from retail, creative agencies, labelling and corrugated packaging to various application sectors including cosmetics, food and beverage production, pharmaceuticals and multinational FMCG brands.
A tripartite collaboration between The Thai Packaging Association, The Thai Printing Association and Messe Düsseldorf Asia, the exhibition also included the signing of an extended partnership agreement between the three parties, which marks continued cooperation and enhanced editions of Pack Print International.
The next edition of the show will be held from 18 to 21 September 2019 at Bangkok.
