Returning for its 6th edition, PACK PRINT INTERNATIONAL will present an impressive display of the best in machinery, technologies and solutions from the packaging and printing sectors. Modelled after the world’s leading trade exhibitions in their sectors – drupa and interpack, PACK PRINT INTERNATIONAL is jointly organised by The Thai Packaging Association, The Thai Printing Association and Messe Düsseldorf Asia. This year, on show are 300 leading exhibitors from 20 countries, including national and country groups from Germany – organised by VDMA with approved funding from Germany, Taiwan, China, Thailand, Japan and for the first time, Singapore.

The biannually-held specialist trade fair – quintessentially one that is curated by the industry, for the industry, continues to gain a foothold in the region as seen through its strong participation and representation. Many repeat exhibitors from the packaging and printing industry will be present, including leaders such as Hewlett-Packard, KBA, Konica Minolta, Duplo, BOBST, Ferrostaal, Fuji Xerox, Riso, Cyber SM, BST eltromat, Rotometrics, Kurz, Zund Asia, and many more.

On the back of current market trends, the industry-leading line-up at the 4-day staging of PACK PRINT INTERNATIONAL 2017 will bring to life the synergistic correlation between pack and print, with an emphasis on packaging. One of which is the One Stop Pack & Print Pavilion, which will showcase 25 award-winning and creative packaging solutions from Thailand covering the food & beverage, pharmaceuticals, electronics, cosmetics and personal care sectors and more, and serve as a targeted platform where innovative packaging designs, packaging end users, packaging producers, material suppliers and machine manufacturers, can come together to source and share best practices in navigating the dynamic packaging and printing ecosystem. Framing this setting is a focus on Packaging and Printing 4.0 – where innovation and technological advancements bring new synergies and perspectives to packaging and print.
