2023-09-21 Company News
PACK PRINT INTERNATIONAL – the 6th International Packaging and Printing Exhibition for Asia, 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.
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 as a must-visit sourcing event 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 such as C.P. Intertrade, Merck, Siam Winery, Oishi, Dole, Reckitt Benckiser, Dutchmill, Friesland Campina, Ichitan, Malee, Taokaenoi, Osotspa, Monde Nissin, Nestle, Kao, Boncafé, among others.
A tripartite collaboration between The Thai Packaging Association, The Thai Printing Association and Messe Düsseldorf Asia, the exhibition closed last month in Bangkok, also included the signing of an extended Partnership Agreement between the three parties, which marks continued cooperation and enhanced editions of PACK PRINT INTERNATIONAL.
According to Mr Gernot Ringling, Managing Director of Messe Düsseldorf Asia, the exhibition is an event for the industry by the industry and the renewed partnership will see the next three editions of PACK PRINT INTERNATONAL expand even further. “This year we saw high-quality visitors and noticeably higher demand across all the application sectors with many deals secured on the show floor. From the Labelling zone, Automation and Robotics Pavilion to the One Stop Pack & Print Pavilion introduced this year, we saw very encouraging uptakes and will continue to fine tune this winning formula to reflect industry trends and demand,” he said.
“We look forward to reinforcing the exhibition as the procurement platform of choice as we strengthen working relations with key government and industry organizations and play our part in propelling Thailand’s influence as the centre for Southeast Asia’s packaging and printing technological transformation,” added Mr Ringling.
PACK PRINT INTERNATIONAL 2017 registered successful machine and equipment sales onsite with companies such as Fujifilm, HP, BPS United, Cyber SM, Wanjin Trading, Guangzhou Yue An Import & Export, Sansin securing business deals at the exhibition. In particular, HP Inc., announced the sealing of six new deals in Thailand across its Indigo and Latex range, including the installations of the first 2 units of Indigo 20000 and 1 unit of Latex 3600 in Southeast Asia.
