Show Review 2019

ICE Europe 2019 sets record for exhibition space, exhibitor and visitor numbers

From 12 – 14 March 2019, the international converting industry gathered for the 11th ICE Europe at the Munich Trade Fair Centre in Germany. This time, the World’s Leading Exhibition for the conversion of flexible, web-based materials, such as paper, film, foil and nonwovens, achieved higher numbers of exhibitors and visitors than ever before and also set a record for the exhibition space.

A total of 7,150 visitors from 75 countries came to the Bavarian capital to discover machinery, systems, materials, and accessories. This is an increase of visitors by 4% compared to the previous event. A total of 463 exhibitors from 25 countries presented their latest technologies on a net exhibition space of 11,500 m², setting records with an 8% increase in exhibitor numbers and a 4% increase in net exhibition space compared to the previous event.

For the second time, the organisers honoured four exhibiting companies with the ICE Awards for their outstanding technological achievements.

Diverse challenges and the trend towards individualised products require innovative ideas and technological development in various areas of the converting industry.
