Trade fair sees increased demand for stand space

CORRUGATED and cartonboard focused trade fair CCE International makes its return to Munich in March 2019, with organisers noting an increased demand for stand space due to the sector’s “positive outlook”.

Europe’s only specialised exhibition for the corrugated and cartonboard manufacturing and conversion industries, CCE International will take place from March 12–14 at the Munich Trade Fair Centre in Germany.

An increased demand in environmentally friendly products, booming online trade and a trend for individualisation and traceability of supply chains are all increasing the production volume for corrugated and folding carton products, organisers said.

“An exhibition such as CCE International is an important platform for providers of raw materials, machines, technologies and accessories to market their products to a targeted audience of buyers and users. The event also provides a valuable setting to drive innovation by expert exchange between manufacturers and users of new applications,” explained Nicola Hamann, managing director of event organisers, Mack Brooks Exhibitions.

“With its unique focus on corrugated and folding carton, CCE International sets itself apart from more general packaging events. This is the main reason why the exhibition has now established itself as Europe’s premier specialised event for this industry sector.

“Exhibitors and visitors know that the exhibition is solely about manufacturing solutions for corrugated and folding carton.”

The 2017 event featured a total of 150 companies from 23 countries covering a net exhibition space of 4,700m2 and attracted 2,130 trade visitors from 67 countries.
