The converting industry’s leading tradeshow, ICE Europe, will be held from 21 to 23 March 2017 at the Munich Trade Fair Centre in Germany. For its 10th edition the exhibition will, once again, present a large variety of new and enhanced products and services. From innovative systems for drying/curing, coating or laminating, to technical advances in finishing processes, in slitting and rewinding, environmentally-friendly hot melt and glue, the latest rolls, rollers and sleeves, new software solutions, precise control, test and measurement systems as well as innovative printing applications – visitors will be able to get a comprehensive overview of all prevailing trends in converting techniques.

A total of 430 exhibitors from 28 countries will present their innovations on a net floor space of some 11 000m2. Live demonstrations at the exhibition stands are, once again, a special focus of the show. Key exhibitor countries are Germany, Italy, Great Britain, Switzerland, the USA, France and the Netherlands.

Exhibition organiser Mack Brooks Exhibitions celebrates this year’s 10th edition of the leading exhibition for the conversion of flexible, web-based materials, such as paper, film, foil and nonwovens, with a Jubilee Awards Ceremony. Innovation prizes will be awarded to exhibiting companies for their excellence in four categories: Industry 4.0, Green Technology, Converting Solutions for New Materials and Innovative Partnerships. The awards ceremony will be held on Tuesday, 21 March 2017, at 15:00. All visitors, exhibitors and the press are invited to join the ceremony in hall A5, stand 886. At this stand visitors will also be able to learn about the history of the International Converting Exhibition.

“Over the past twenty years ICE Europe has evolved from a small get-together of the converting industry into a renowned specialised industry event. The success of the exhibition reflects the successful development of the converting sector over the past two decades. Initially a niche sector, the converting industry has by now become a high-tech industry driven by innovation and technological expertise,” explains Nicola Hamann, Managing Director of Mack Brooks Exhibitions.
