Dr Andrew Mint, chief executive officer of PPMA Group of Associations said, “PPMA Show 2018 saw the largest ever audience to a PPMA event, surpassing all our expectations. From the incredible range of new products to the vibrancy of debate during the conference, last year’s show reinforced our confidence that the industries we serve never stop developing and looking for new ways to achieve growth.”
Features of PPMA Total Show 2019 will include an Enterprise Zone and a conference programme across all three days of the show, where expert speakers will debate the latest challenges facing the packaging and processing industry. Case studies, panel discussions and presentations will take place.

Dr Mint added, “This is an especially important time for the industries we represent. We’re entering a phase where political changes are set to impact our business dealings internationally and we’re also seeing, now more than ever, our practices and procedures being examined.We’re very confident that this year’s PPMA Total Show will provide visitors with an array of product launches and thought-provoking content to help them drive their business forward.”
