ALL4PACK Paris 2018 will take place in Paris Nord Villepinte (north of the French capital) from 26 to 29 November 2018. This year, the trade show will have exciting new features, including an enhanced programme of business meetings, a creative lounge, a start-up hub and an extremely diverse agenda covering ALL4PACK’s four main sectors — packaging, printing, processing and logistics. Among the 1,350 exhibitors and brands, many British companies will be present alongside international participants.
ALL4PACK Paris, previously Emballage & Manutention, is the global market place for the packaging industry, including processing, printing and handling. In 2016, close to 89,000 visitors attended the event. This comforted the trade event as the premier platform for business deals, innovation and exchanges of ideas in the field of packaging, with about 1,500 exhibitors and represented companies. Over 500 business meetings were held in 2016 — a number which is set to increase thanks to this year’s new Meetings Planner.
The trade show will be held from 26 to 29 November 2018 in Paris Villepinte, the exhibition centre located north of Paris (France). It will be organised in four key areas: Packaging, Printing, Processing and Logistics (handling). Many British exhibitors will be present alongside a wide range of international participants.
