Bangkok, 20 September 2017: The sixth edition of PACK PRINT INTERNATIONAL was officially opened by Dr Somchai Harnhirun, Ph.D. Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Industry, with the theme of “Packaging and Printing for the Future” to bring forward latest technological innovations in line with ‘Thailand 4.0’ development plan. The exhibition highlights Thailand’s strength as Southeast Asia’s printing and packaging hub with top-class capabilities. The full spectrum of the pack and print value chain will come to life with in-demand machinery and 4.0-driven solutions presented by 300 exhibitors from 20 countries, including national pavilions and groups from Austria, China, Germany, Malaysia, Taiwan, and for the first-time Singapore.
Held alongside is T-PLAS 2017 – the international trade fair for the plastics and rubber industries. Both exhibitions are exemplary in emphasising the importance of cross-trade partnerships and will pave influential business connections in the synergistic packaging, printing, plastics and rubber industries. Optimizing the attractive opportunities that Thailand and the region offer to international players, a total of 550 companies from more than 24 countries have been gathered across the two exhibitions. A series of concurrent seminars, conferences, technical presentations and product demonstrations centred on the latest market trends and technological advancements will also be held over the four-day show period.
The exhibitions will take place at BITEC, Bangkok from now till 23 September 2017. Admission to the exhibitions is free for all trade visitors. For more information, please visit www.pack-print.de and www.tplas.com
