Thai show uses drupa model
Bangkok show will host 300 international exhibitors from 20 countries

Organisers expect around 15,000 trade visitors from around the world to attend Pack Print International in September.

Joint organisers Messe Düsseldorf Asia, The Thai Packaging Association, and The Thai Printing Association say they have modelled the show after drupa and Interpack.

The show’s One Stop Pack & Print Pavilion will highlight 25 award-winning and creative packaging solutions from Thailand, covering the food & beverage, pharmaceuticals, electronics, cosmetics and personal care sectors. The One Stop Pack & Print Pavilion will serve as a special platform for innovative packaging designers, packaging end users, packaging producers, material suppliers and machinery manufacturers to meet and share best practices for navigating the dynamic packaging and printing network. The focus will be on Packaging and Printing 4.0 conveyed through the three pillars of package, packaging process for manufacturing and packaging production.

Noppadol Krairiksh, president of the Thai Packaging Association, says, “I am positive that the insights exchanged at the exhibition and the Pavilion will be a step forward for strengthening and increasing the competitiveness of Thailand’s packaging and printing industries as well for contributing to the Thai economy.

Pimnara Jiranithitnon, president of the Thai Printing Association, says, “We are pleased to have received the support of key government and industry organisations including the Ministry of Industry, The Federation of Thai Industries which includes 45 industrial clubs as well as the Printing & Packaging Cluster of the Federation of Thai Industries for the One Stop Pack & Print Pavilion.

“With this, packaging and printing trade professionals will be able to reach out to member companies and packaging users, get free professional advice from an alliance of packaging and print related associations, agencies and institutes and also learn from successful case studies by industry leaders.”

“The implementation of “Thailand 4.0” (an economic model that will enable Thailand to transform the country into a value-based and innovation-driven economy, moving from producing commodities to innovative products, focusing on promoting technology, creativity, and innovation and changing from a production-based to a service-based economy) has resulted in  nation- and industry- wide movements across the packaging and printing sectors – with Packaging and Printing 4.0 – to reach the goal of increasing the capabilities of Thai industries through technology and innovation.”

The show will see technology from 300 international exhibitors and suppliers from 20 countries. Exhibiting companies will include Hewlett-Packard, Kurz, Konica Minolta, Ferrostaal, Riso, KBA, Wah Ho Packaging, Harn Engineering, Nakayama Corporation, Pmc Label Material, Rotometrics, Keywell Industrial, BPS United, Ueno Corporation and Zund Asia

Gernot Ringling, managing director of Messe Düsseldorf Asia, says, “As we progress together with Thailand 4.0, there is a greater need for trade fair organizers like us to align our exhibition line-up with present industry shifts and future trends. With a renewed focus on packaging, Pack Print International 2017 – with the launch of the One Stop Pack & Print Pavilion – will present the entire value, bringing to the forefront the full spectrum of the packaging and printing sectors: from developing new products and technology, creating packaging that protects food for a longer shelf life to digital printing’s economic and speed-to-market advantages for mainstream package decoration

“Fundamentally, we want Pack Print International 2017 to be a strategic launch pad for packaging and printing companies to grow their business through drawing critical market insights, gaining invaluable connections and benefiting from the expansive showcase of innovative capabilities and technology.”

A series of conferences, seminars and technical presentations led by industry organisations will complement the show, including an event on Food Loss and Waste in collaboration with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.

The show will also offer a free business matching service to make networking easier as it connects industry professionals from the packaging, printing and related industries prior to their visit.
