Indonesia's Tri-Sector Trade Show with Outstanding Visitor Turnout
Indonesia’s leading synergistic tri-sector exhibitions closed successfully earlier this month, surpassing expectations with robust exhibitor and visitor participation. Indoplas, Indopack (incorporating Indoprocess) and Indoprint 2014 attracted more than 22,000 quality trade professionals from Indonesia and the region, a 20% increase in visitors from the last edition held in 2012. The three exhibitions showcased an impressive range of technology and innovations that included energy-efficient machinery, the latest equipment and applications, to new solutions and services across the plastics, packaging, processing and printing sectors.
This year also saw the largest line-up of 362 companies from 19 countries, representing a 30% increase from 2012, as well as a huge display of machinery onsite - an indication that the three exhibitions are gaining importance and relevance in the plastics, packaging and printing industries, according to Gernot Ringling, Managing Director, Messe Düsseldorf Asia.
The four-day exhibition which spanned 13,000 sqm at the Jakarta International Expo, Kemayoran, provided a one-stop business platform serving the entire end-to-end supply chain for the plastic, packaging and printing sectors. The exhibitions were also complemented by the value-added conference and seminar programmes from leading industry authorities such as the VDMA from Germany, The Indonesian Packaging Federation, and SML Maschinengesellschaft MBH from Austria, Lubrizol Engineered Polymers, and Exxonmobil Chemical Asia Pacific that were well-attended as they shared best practices and innovations that addressed market trends and technological demands.
International market players made up more than half of the exhibitors and took up 70% of the show floor. Germany, Taiwan, Singapore and Austria were strong crowd pullers alongside country groups from China, Italy and Thailand all of whom were represented by a stellar line-up of repeat exhibitors.
Jointly organized by Messe Düsseldorf Asia and partner PT. Wahana Kemalaniaga Makmur (WAKENI), the exhibitions are poised to continue on its growth path as Indonesia’s leading exhibitions for the plastic, packaging and printing sectors. Indoplas, Indopack (incorporating Indoprocess) and Indoprint will return in 2016 at the Jakarta International Expo Kemayoran from 7 to 10 September.
