After a compulsory break in 2021, preparations are well underway for the collective of converting paper and print exhibitions. Organizer Mack-Brooks Exhibitions is confident of holding the shows from 15 to 17 March 2022 at the Munich Trade Fair Centre in Germany. Visitor registration is already open.

“Finally, our live events can continue their critical role in bringing the global converting, paper, and print industry together. As of today, a total of 467 exhibitors will be presenting their latest technologies on a combined net exhibition space of more than 13,500 square meters”, explained Patrick Herman, event director of the Converting, Paper and Print Events at Mack-Brooks Exhibitions.

“For the first time, the three shows will take place at the same time and the same venue creating an all-round experience with increased opportunities and synergies for all trade visitors on-site. With InPrint Munich covering the print technology for industrial manufacturing, we are now able to offer an almost comprehensive overview of the value chain”, concluded Patrick Herman.

Line-up and program

Amongst exhibiting companies are – (ICE Europe) Kroenert, Kampf, Polytype, Davis Standard, Erhardt + Leimer, CMC / (CCE International) Lamina System, Baysek Machiners, Solarco Machinery, Kolbus, Bahmüller, Emmepi, Sun Automation / (InPrint Munich) Xaar, Agfa, Seiko Instruments, Inkatronic, Meteor Inkjet, Siegwerk, and Afford Inks.

Furthermore, visitors can expect an extensive and diverse supporting program. At ICE Europe, best practices, excellence, innovation, and extraordinary achievements in the converting industry will be honored with the popular ICE Awards. Four winners, selected by industry professionals, will be presented during an official ceremony in the following categories – Digital Converting Solutions/ Sustainable Products and Manufacturing Processes/ Efficient Production Solutions/ Special Film Innovations. 

The comprehensive and specialized conference program at InPrint Munich offers an exciting insight into market developments and innovative projects. The presentations focus on technology trends, new applications, and the latest print technology solutions for industrial manufacturing, with Q&A sessions after each presentation. The open seminar program at CCE International covers the latest trends and topics in corrugated and folding carton production and processing.

Important visitor information for the events

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
