ICE Europe 2011 – International Converting Exhibition

World’s leading Exhibition for Paper, Film and Foil Converting is bigger than ever
(PresseBox) (St Albans, ) The biggest ICE Europe ever will open its doors from 8 – 10 November 2011, at its new venue, the Munich Trade Fair Centre, Germany. A total of 370 exhibitors from 21 countries have already booked their stands at the world’s leading exhibition for paper, film and foil converting. With a total exhibition space of 9,500 square metres net, ICE Europe 2011 has grown by some 20% compared with the exhibition space at its old venue, Munich’s M,O,C. A good half of the exhibitors, 58%, are German companies. Second largest exhibitor country is Italy, followed by Great Britain, Switzerland, the USA, the Netherlands and France.

“Over the past years, ICE Europe has developed into the leading international industry event for converting specialists. They value this specialised trade exhibition as the ideal platform to establish global networks and to build new business relations,” says Nicola Hamann, Exhibition Director ICE Europe, on behalf of the organisers, Mack Brooks Exhibitions.

ICE Europe attracts predominantly managing directors, plant managers, design and production engineers, technical managers, purchasers and sales and marketing directors from all key industry sectors. Important visitor industry sectors include packaging, food, pharmaceutical, textiles and nonwovens, paper, package printing as well as product development for the automotive, furniture and electronics industries.

Energy efficient production processes and new materials
Key subjects at this year’s exhibition will be new materials conversion, energy efficient production as well as enhanced process control. The exhibiting companies will present innovative equipment and practical solutions for optimised manufacturing processes and production of top quality goods. Many of the exhibits showcased at ICE Europe 2011 will focus on material reduction, process control, waste reduction, improved production processes with reduced energy consumption and new materials from renewable resources.

Some of these topics will also be the subject of a conference on “Sustainability in packaging – processes and materials”. The conference is organised by Fraunhofer Institut and will be held alongside the exhibition.
