German market leaders have registered; high participation from Italy and China; visitor registration now open
The interpack alliance trade fairs pacprocess India, food pex India and indiapack (organized by the Indian Institute of Packaging) are on the road to success: Spread over 19,000 square meters of exhibition space, 350 exhibitors are expected to attend, among them global players and market leaders such as Bizerba, Constantia Flexibles, Hangzhou Youngsun Intelligent Equipment Co., Huthamaki or Pakona Engineers Pvt. Ltd. as well as joint group exhibits from China, Germany and Italy. The trade fair trio will take place at the Bombay Convention and Exhibition Centre (BCEC) in Mumbai from October 24 to 26, 2018. As at last year’s successful premier, this will be augmented by the drink technology India trade fair, organized by Messe München, which will take place in parallel. The success of this trade fair concept is based especially on the the concept of trade fairs that complement one another, in this case for the packaging sector and the related process industry (interpack alliance trade fairs), as well as the topics beverage technology, dairy and liquid food (drink technology India, Messe München). Another important cornerstone of the overall concept is the trade fair location that alternates between New Delhi, where the premier attracted a lot of attention in 2017, and Mumbai.
The Indian subcontinent with its population of over 1.3 billion is an increasingly important market for the entire packaging sector and the related process industry. This trade fair quartet is the ideal platform to enter this new market. Accordingly, the German joint booth of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy has a range of high-ranking participants: Twelve companies will participate on 315 square meters. Among them are market leaders Multivac, Bizerba, Constantia Flexibles, KHS, Krones and Huthamaki. The official participants from China and Italy (supported by the industry association UCIMA) also reflect the economic importance attached to the packaging sector in India and will participate with large joint booths.
