The 10th anniversary event of the ICE Europe show will take place from March 21-23, 2017 at the Munich Trade Fair Centre in Germany. The world’s leading exhibition for the conversion of flexible, web-based materials, such as paper, film, foil and nonwovens, targets industry professionals looking for equipment and solutions within the converting sector.
“For two decades now, ICE Europe has been the key platform for converting professionals and experts who seek to advance their business and stay updated on the latest innovations,” said Nicola Hamann, managing director of the organisers, Mack Brooks Exhibitions. “Following the record show of 2015, closing with a visitor increase of seven per cent, the 10th event of ICE Europe 2017 will focus on the rapid technological diversification in converting, which is pushed by the impact of trends and challenges on the industry, such as automation and digitisation. The converting market is a highly dynamic sector in which the production and conversion of high quality flexible materials and the implementation of sustainable production processes are the drivers for innovation.”
Less than a year ahead of the show, 324 exhibitors from 21 countries have already booked and reserved 86 per cent of the exhibition space. In 2015, the show saw 7,040 visitors, 439 exhibitors and a net exhibition space of 11,000 m².
ICE Europe 2017 will be held in halls A5 and A6 of the Munich Trade Fair Centre in Germany.
