SinoFoldingCarton 2011 Marks Another Excellent Folding Carton Showcase by Reed Exhibitions
The biggest event in China's folding carton industry, SinoFoldingCarton, had another successful run at Beijing’s China International Exhibition Center from July 6 to July 8.

By comprehensively showcasing new equipment, materials and manufacturing solutions for the entire folding carton industry, SinoFoldingCarton 2011 offered a perfect channel through which producers and suppliers were able to develop cooperation opportunities.
The show was also the biggest packaging and printing event in North China this year. It attracted the highest profile producers and suppliers of equipment used to make folding cartons, rigid boxes, plastic boxes, cigarette box labels and paper bags. The latest folding carton production and processing solutions were displayed over an exhibition area of 20,000 sqm. About 300 companies featured their new products and innovative technologies, 22 of them for the very first time, at SinoFoldingCarton 2011.

The following day, the Seminar on Electronic Monitoring Code Technology presented a proposal to apply local and international mainstream variable printing systems to drug monitoring codes. The pharmaceutical and printing companies that participated were very enthusiastic in their response. Indeed, there was not a single seat to spare during the presentation.

Rounding off the wide array of activities were the group purchasing events; the showcase for premium quality cigarette box labels for high profile brands and the Packaging Star and World Star winners’ exhibition. These events added an element of fun and vibrancy to the show.

Extensive Influence and Highly Positive Feedback
As China's leading folding carton exhibition, SinoFoldingCarton delivers promising opportunities to explore China's northern market through its comprehensive market research and far-reaching influence.
SinoFoldingCarton 2011 not only provided excellent opportunities for participants to develop the North China market, it also uncovered the great potential of the Bohai Rim Region for the packaging and printing industry.
Sun Fengxian, General Sales Manager of Qingdao Meiguang Machinery, said, “SinoFoldingCarton is a very good platform for suppliers like us to promote our products. We’ve taken part in the show many times because the organizers, Reed Exhibitions, and the calibre of trade professionals they attract to shows, are consistently excellent. That’s also the main reason we choose this event to launch our latest products”.
Manfred Wilke, from German company Kartonagen Radowitz, said, “I’ve been to SinoFoldingCarton several times and am impressed by how the scale of the exhibition continues to grow. Several years ago, Kartonagen Radowitz bought equipment at a SinoFoldingCarton event. That machinery is still in use at our factory today. This is a testament to the quality of the equipment and the cost-effectiveness of this event. It’s why I believe that SinoFoldingCarton is an excellent platform on which I can procure and evaluate high quality manufacturing solutions.”
Organized by Reed Exhibitions, SinoFoldingCarton 2011 was one of the year’s highest profile events for the folding carton industry.
