(Algiers/Heidelberg/Düsseldorf) Good news about plast & printpack alger 2018: The 5th International Plastics and Composites and the 6th Printing and Packaging Trade Show is growing strongly. Algeria invests heavily in the plastics, printing and packaging industries. This is why more and more international technology leaders are opting for a participation in the leading trade fair in North Africa. Organized by fairtrade and Messe Düsseldorf, the event will take place at the brand new CIC in Algiers on March 11-13, 2018.
Massive investments in the Algerian plastics, printing and packaging industry
“When registering as a visitor to the previous plast & printpack alger in April 2016, 70% of visitors said they intended to invest in the next 12 months” recalls Martin März, fairtrade's founder and Managing Partner. “Figures from the VDMA German Engineering Federation confirm this very impressively: In 2016, Algeria increased its plastics technology imports by a remarkable 40%. While they amounted to EUR 96 million in 2015, they already recorded EUR 135 million for 2016. Imports of packaging technology rose by 9% to EUR 228 million in the same period. This makes Algeria the largest importer of packaging technology and the second largest importer of plastics technology on the African continent."
plast & printpack alger 2018 is growing strongly
“After 166 exhibitors from 22 countries and 4,360 trade visitors participated in the last event in 2016, the plast & printpack alger in 2018 is again showing all signs of growth” outlines Petra Cullmann, Global Portfolio Director Plastics & Rubber at Messe Düsseldorf. “Although it is still too early for definitive figures, strongly grown exhibitor numbers, especially from Algeria, Austria, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Qatar, Spain and Turkey point to a robust growth of the trade fair.”
What’s new in 2018?
For the first time, fairtrade and Messe Düsseldorf are jointly organizing the plast & printpack alger, as Messe Düsseldorf has entered as an equal partner into cooperation with fairtrade. Organizer of the world’s No. 1 trade shows K, drupa and interpack, Messe Düsseldorf is the global leader in professional trade fairs for the plastics, printing and packaging industry. It goes without saying that Messe Düsseldorf can make a valuable contribution to the further development of the plast & printpack alger.
Another remarkable novelty is that the event takes place in the brand new CIC alger, the Centre International de Conférences d’Alger, North Africa’s most sophisticated and best-equipped exhibition ground.
