AUSPACK 2017 RACKS UP RECORDS IN SYDNEY

AUSPACK 2017 has been heralded as record-breaking Sydney show by organiser Exhibition & Trade Fairs. The 2017 event racked up several records for AUSPACK, including most space occupied, largest number of exhibitors, largest contingent of international exhibitors, and with more than 6000 visitors, the highest attendance at the Sydney Showground.

According to Anne-Marie Mina, Marketing Manager with Exhibition & Trade Fairs (ETF), “There were so many elements that went into making this show a resounding success. From augmented reality, virtual reality and the customer-service robot AMY all creating interactive and engaging visitor experiences, to the product launches that happened right across the show floor, 2017 was one very memorable show.”

Mark Dingley, Chairman of the APPMA commented, “The new awards and processing day, held as part of the growing packaging and processing week, were excellent inclusions and added a lot of value for visitors to what was already Australasia’s most innovative event for the packaging and processing industry.

“As always, the APPMA would like to thank our members, exhibitors, National Technical Forum attendees and visitors to AUSPACK 2017 for their support. Besides the opportunities to see the latest technical developments and solutions, the event is always excellent for networking,” he added.

Anne-Marie Mina concluded, “For three consecutive shows, we have continued to grow the event and continued breaking records. I am super excited that everything went so well and that visitors and exhibitors alike gained so much.”

The next AUSPACK will be held from 26th to 29th March 2019 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.
