CCE International 2019 indicates future trends to corrugated and folding carton industry

From 12 – 14 March 2019 the corrugated and folding carton industry will gather for the 4th edition of CCE International at the Munich Trade Fair Centre in Germany. More than 150 exhibitors from 23 countries have booked their stand space and occupy a net floor space of 5,000m2. Featuring hundreds of exhibitor profiles and product information, the Show Preview is now available to all visitors in print and online. The printed version also includes the exhibition profile, an excerpt from the seminar programme and a professional article about inkjet in corrugated printing production.

The corrugated and folding carton industry benefits from the booming online trade, and the trend towards recyclable and sustainable packaging is boosting significant growth in the corrugated and folding carton industry. ‘The economic situation of the industry is thoroughly positive, but it is important to catch up with the latest trends, such as the customers’ demand for individualisation and the new opportunities that digitalisation offers’, explains Liljana Goszdziewski, Exhibition Director of CCE International, on behalf of the organisers, Mack Brooks Exhibitions. ‘CCE International indicates future trends to the corrugated and folding carton industry and remains the most important meeting point for industry experts’, says Liljana Goszdziewski.
