CCE International 2013 set to be a launch event of substantial size

From 19-21 March 2013 the first CCE International Exhibition for the Corrugated and Folding Carton Industries will be held at the Munich Trade Fair Centre, Germany. Raw material manufacturers and suppliers of machines, accessories and services for the corrugated and cartonboard industries will put a wide range of innovative products and solutions on display.

The exhibition covers raw materials; corrugated equipment; corrugated converting, folding carton converting and printing equipment, pre-production and pre-press, materials handling and warehousing, waste extraction and baling as well as machine and plant controls.

Four months ahead of the exhibition 75 exhibitors from 14 countries have booked a net exhibition space of 4,000 m2.

“For a launch event this is a substantial size. The positive feedback from exhibiting companies proves that there is a definite demand for a specialised trade exhibition for the corrugated and folding carton industries in Europe,” says Nicola Hamann, exhibition director CCE International. “We are delighted to be able to report that so many companies have booked large exhibition stands for live demonstrations of their machines and equipment; as this is what the visitors expect to see at such a show.”

The products and services presented at the show are targeted at corrugated and folding carton manufacturers and converters, rigid carton and honeycomb board manufacturers, core board and core tube manufacturers as well as packaging designers and specifiers.

CCE International will be co-located with ICE Europe 2013, the leading trade exhibition for the paper, film and foil converting industry. Both exhibitions can be accessed via entrance East of the Munich Trade Fair Centre. ICE Europe 2013 will be held in halls A5 and A6 and CCE International will occupy hall B6, directly opposite. The entry tickets are valid for both shows.

“We have decided to organise CCE International at the same time and place as ICE Europe as we expect that there will be a strong synergy effect with regards to the visitors,” continues Hamann. “While both shows have their individual core audience, there will be a large number of visitors who will be interested in both shows. ICE and CCE attract a variety of production specialists and packaging designers across industry sectors including food and beverage, pharmaceutical, cosmetics and tobacco. Converters and packaging professionals will therefore be able to experience sustainable packaging trends first-hand.”

A visitor brochure including key facts about the show, exhibitor list and travel and accommodation information is now available in several languages via the website. A detailed Exhibition Preview with exhibitor profiles and product descriptions will be available in January 2013.

CCE International is open 19 and 20 March 2013 from 9.00-17.00hrs and on 21 March 2013 from 9.00-16.00hrs. Tickets can be purchased on-site and online. The day ticket price on-site is 30€; reduced online price is 20€; season ticket price on-site is 45€, online 30€.
