Demand for Booths Set to Outstrip Capacity at SinoCorrugated
Demand for Booths Set to Outstrip Capacity at SinoCorrugated 2013
Following the success of SinoCorrugated South 2012, the local and international corrugated cardboard manufacturing community is turning its attention to SinoCorrugated 2013, which will be held at the Shanghai New International Expo Center from April 8 to April 11.
The biggest global event in the corrugated paperboard and packaging industry next year, SinoCorrugated 2013 will bring world renowned suppliers of corrugated manufacturing equipment and consumables together with important buyers, agents and trade organizations. As it does each year, the event will mark the beginning of a new round of development in corrugated equipment manufacturing.
While SinoCorrugated 2013 steps up its drive to attract exhibitors, the organizers have expanded the exhibition area by 20% over 2011. Nevertheless, estimates are that demand for exhibition space is sure to again exceed supply. To date, already 80% of available booths have been sold. Of these confirmed exhibitors, 12% will be participating in SinoCorrugated for the first time. Over 600 high profile companies are expected to exhibit products at SinoCorrugated, across a record high exhibition area of 61,700 sqm.
In recent years, the Chinese packaging industry has become one of the world’s most important. In 2011, China’s packaging industrial output value reached RMB1.3 billion (USD 20.4 million), making it the world’s second largest packaging producing nation, just behind the United States. During the same period, the corrugated paperboard industry has grown at a rapid rate of between 18 and 20%. With China becoming a global manufacturing hub, the resultant diverse market demand represents a deep pool of opportunity for local suppliers.
As the most advanced exhibition for corrugated equipment, consumables and technology, SinoCorrugated 2013 is expected to attract about 26,000 visitors from across the corrugated cardboard manufacturing industry, 20% of them from abroad. The international visitors will come from countries like Germany, the US, Britain, France, Italy, Russia, Ukraine, Spain, Brazil, Australia, Mexico, India, Vietnam, Indonesia and Malaysia.
A post-exhibition survey of visitors to SinoCorrugated 2011 showed that the majority of the 4,330 international visitors, from 96 countries and regions, had visited the event and were pleased with the results. They pledged to return for SinoCorrugated 2013.
Thanks to its growing international influence, in 2013, SinoCorrugated will work even more closely with foreign and local industry associations and media. The organizers of the event, Reed Exhibitions, will use multiple channels to invite targeted buyers and promote the SinoCorrugated brand. At the 2011 show, many high-end buyers including senior trade delegates, organized by 48 international trade associations, attended. Connecting and communicating with such key industry personnel is vital to market expansion.
SinoCorrugated 2013 will surpass the 2011 event in terms of content and quality. At the same time as running seminars and facilitating numerous opportunities for company representatives and trade association delegates to interact, the organizers will ensure that, while on-site, participants have access to the full range of powerful technical and informational support.
SinoCorrugated 2013 will be a convenient, highly efficient commercial platform for exhibitors, visitors and buyers. The show will also drive international trade, cross-border communication and sustainable development.
