“We are receiving a large number of exhibitor enquiries for the 2015 event; almost all of the total stand space of the previous event has already been reserved.

Major exhibitor countries to date are Germany, Italy, the USA, the Netherlands and Great Britain. “The fact that exhibiting companies are booking larger stand spaces for the coming event proves that they were highly satisfied with last year’s launch show and are now planning to bring even more machines.”
With a total of 110 exhibitors on a net exhibition space of 3,300 m2 and more than 2,000 visitors from all over the world, the launch of CCE International in 2013 was a complete success.
