High anticipation reflected in exhibition space sales for CCE International 2017
CCE International 2017 will take place at the Munich Trade Fair Centre, Germany, from 21-23 March 2017. Targeted exclusively to this industry, the show is going to present the latest machinery and accessories for the corrugated and folding carton sector. Despite an increase in the price for raw materials, the market for the production of corrugated and folding carton is expected to increase by more than 4% annually (Smithers Pira: The Future of Corrugated Board Packaging to 2019) and the large variety of innovative production and converting processes offers new business opportunities in many different sectors. In this highly dynamic market, CCE International, the only show in Europe specifically targeted to this industry, offers a comprehensive overview of new applications – in particular in converting, including printing. More than 100 exhibitors have already booked and reserved 3,500 m2 net exhibition space – this constitutes 77% of the total booked space from 2015. Key players from the industry that have confirmed their stand at the show include: Bahmüller GmbH, Mosca GmbH, British Converting Solutions, Baumer hhs GmbH, Signode and Celmacch Group. Companies interested in exhibiting at the event can request their stand offer via the newly designed show website www.cce-international.com.
