The 3rd Plastivision Arabia 2016 and 2nd Print Pack Arabia 2016, which will be held simultaneously in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates (UAE) from February 22 to 25, will offer the latest plastics, printing and packaging technology for the region’s food processors.
“The UAE imports about 85% of its food, and the country is also importing food items, commodities and ingredients and using local resources to repackage and re-export them. The UAE thus becomes not only a trading hub for food but also a place where regional food processors can source their packaging requirements,” said Saif Mohammed Al Midfa, CEO, Expo Centre Sharjah, the shows organizer.
Both Plastivision Arabia and Print Pack Arabia are held in association with Indian partners – All India Plastics Manufacturers Association (AIPMA) and Indian Printing, Packaging and Allied Machinery Manufacturers’ Association (IPAMA), respectively
“The impressive Indian participation and the expanded presence of Taiwanese firms will mostly cater to the processing and packaging sector and thus will be a great opportunity for the regional food industry. The Taiwanese exhibitors will also hold live displays, which will help visitors understand the new technology and decide on their requirements,” added Midfa.
The 3rd Arabia Mold, organized in association with DEMAT, the organizer of EuroMold, one of the world’s leading fairs for mold-making & tooling, design and application development, will also be held alongside Plastivision Arabia and Print Pack Arabia.
