All4Pack 2016

In a general context characterized by the progressive integration of the entire production chain, the exhibitions Emballage and Manutention affirm their complementary relationship to become All4Pack Paris, “The global marketplace for Packaging, Processing, Printing & Handling”.

Ever since 2010, the joint organization of the two events within the same fair distrct during the same time period had evidenced their synergy, positioning the offer of Manutention as the natural continuation of the end of line sector represented by Emballage. Since then, buyers in this market have oriented themselves towards a policy of vertical procurement, buying packaging, processes, printing systems and intralogistics and order shipment solutions.
The new All4Pack Paris brand lends enhanced clarity to this expanded offer, in line with the evolution of the industry.
This strategic turn responds to buyer expectations and reaffirms the exhibition's exclusive international positioning within the EMEA region.

So far, 40% of companies registered to participate are international, confirming the event's international appeal. Italy, Germany, Turkey, Spain, Belgium and Luxembourg are among the most well-represented countries, but the Netherlands and the UK will also have a strong presence.
Exhibitors will also find major outlets in the eastern European and African markets. The latter will hold a place of honor this year through the presence of major buyers and official delegations. There will also be no dearth of representatives of Asia and China.

The exhibition confirms its dynamism and promises an iteration rich with innovations and business deals for its 1,600 exhibitors and the 98,000 operators expected to attend the event in Paris Nord Villepinte.
The success of the new format is confirmed by the numbers.
Six months before the opening, a number of important indicators have been reported during the presentation conference held in Milan on 19 May in spaces provided by Eataly: 900 exhibitors have already registered, 40% of which international, and 90% of the exhibition space has already been booked.

"Let’s be creative!"
That's the new claim with which the 2016 edition celebrates the innovative power of this sector, which is fundamental to generating value and new tools for growth and doing business in a highly competitive economy.
The event's organizer Comexposium opens the doors to creativity with a new name, expanded offer and a simplified pricing regime that is more transparent for exhibitors. Pavilions 5a, 6 and 7 have been divided by sector in an intuitive and straightforward manner, and the event features an unprecedented calendar of conferences and side events to valorize and examine the hot topics of innovation.
In order to respond to an evolving industry and a market now oriented towards all-round production, the All4Pack offer has been structured around 4 complementary business sectors:
- Packaging and Processing (which bring together the entire pacakging offer from raw materials to the finished product, including processing and converting machinery as well as packaging production).
- Printing (including digital and hybrid printing, 3D printing, labels, packaging printing equipment and graphics).
- Handling (focusing on automation and smart warehousing, now more than ever tied up with packaging's end of line).
