With the packaging industry alone boasting 300 trade shows around the world, ALL4PACK Paris, organised by the COMEXPOSIUM Group, announces the launch of “THE NETWORK”, an international network federating several packaging shows, granting their community access to the market information of its members.
Through this initiative, ALL4PACK Paris, the international benchmark trade show for the EMEA region in the packaging and intralogistics markets, intends to create a high-quality network, facilitate relationships and encourage the sharing of experience among major international events.
Véronique Sestrières, director of ALL4PACK Paris and of the Manufacturing & Transport division of COMEXPOSIUM Group, comments: “We are proud to be behind this initiative which has met with an enthusiastic response from our partners. In the space of a few months, THE NETWORK has already brought together 11 shows in 7 countries and more exhibitions are due to follow! The creation of this packaging-process-printing-handling network underlines the desire of the COMEXPOSIUM Group to contribute added value to its events in terms of content for participants, and to federate the packaging community in its international dimension.”
PACKAGING, A KEY GLOBAL ECONOMIC SECTOR
Valued at US$839 billion in 2015, the worldwide packaging market could account for US$998 billion in 2020 with compound average growth of 5% per year, rising to US$1,100 billion by 2024. With a growing world population, demand has never been so high and the industry is more than ever correlated to countries’ economic development, in particular that of emerging markets, which see packaging as an opportunity to gain a position or emerge on the world industrial market.
With buyers present all around the world and specificities and requirements varying by individual market, international trade shows are showcases for trends and needs on a local level and represent an extremely valuable source of information for trade professionals and manufacturers. To capitalise on this data and promote the internationalisation of the sector, ALL4PACK Paris has decided to bring together several of these events to encourage the sharing of information and experiences.
