"The continued growth of the world’s leading converting exhibition demonstrates the positive economic outlook of the industry sector and its dynamic development. There is considerable growth potential for the converting industry in the emerging markets where the demand for consumer products and flexible packaging solutions is continuously growing. In the developed markets there is an increasing demand for value-added, individually designed products and smart packaging solutions,” says Nicola Hamann, Managing Director of the organizer Mack Brooks Exhibitions.
For suppliers and users of materials, machines, systems and accessories for the conversion of flexible materials, an international trade show such as ICE Europe is a key driver for innovative production solutions. The exhibiting companies are presenting a comprehensive range of products for the converting industry: materials, coating and laminating, drying/curing, treatment, flexographic and rotogravure printing, control and measurement, accessories, slitting and rewinding, finishing, factory equipment, retrofits, toll coating, converting and slitting as well as specialist software.
A key feature of ICE Europe is the large number of live demonstration of machinery and systems at the individual exhibition stands. Whether biodegradable materials, enhanced coating applications, efficient slitting and rewinding technology, new printing or precise measuring systems – many novelties are presented at ICE Europe to a wider audience for the very first time.
A specialist conference on prevailing trends in converting is held alongside the exhibition. The conference is organised by AIMCAL (Association of International Metallizers, Coaters and Laminators) in cooperation with Fraunhofer Institute for Process Engineering and Packaging.
The 2nd International Exhibition for the Corrugated and Folding Carton Industry is, once again, co-located to ICE Europe, in hall B6, directly opposite the ICE Europe halls. A total of 156 exhibitors from 22 countries will present raw materials, machines, accessories and systems for the production and conversion of corrugated and cartonboard. An open and free seminar with a variety of topics on corrugated and carton production as well as new digital and inkjet print applications will be held on the show floor.
