PackPro Expo 2016 A Success; Markem-Imaje Exhibits

Late in February, the three-day PackPro show hosted at the Chennai Trade Centre in India was a huge success, attracting approximately 5,000 visitors over the three-day span. Markem-Imaje was one of the coding and marking system suppliers to attend the show, the first year the packaging show has included end-of-line packaging solution providers. Prior to this year's show, the event focused solely on the packaging industry and was last held in 2012, according to Aditya Ashok of Intel Trade Fairs & Expositions.

According to news reports, other major players at the show included providers of pouching machines, form-fill-seal machines, gluing systems, labeling machines, and more.

C Ramesh, Business Development Manager at Markem-Imaje India attended PackPro, saying that "In our experience, we believe the decision making in this industry during the exhibition is limited. Thereby we took this opportunity to talk to our existing customers and initiate conversation with our prospective ones." Markem-Imaje has an installation base of more than 2,000 machines in Tamil Nadu, a state located in southeast India.

Other companies in attendance at the trade show included Welbound who showcased their newest hot-melt gluing machine; Automated Packaging Systems, makers of Autobag®, designed for packaging of auto parts; and more.

Numerous exhibitors at the trade show decided to use it as a 'meet and greet' opportunity, restricting their booths to catalogs of their products rather than demonstrations.

Overall, PackPro proved to be a positive experience for exhibitors who desire to build their brands, showcase their newest products, and gain more exposure in the packaging market.

At Markem-Imaje, we provide industrial coding and marking systems to many industries; proven solutions that are reliable, cost-effective, and that integrate seamlessly into existing production lines. As a global leader in industrial printing equipment, we invite you to learn more about our marking solutions.
