NEW interpack alliance EVENT IN TEHRAN: pacprocess Tehran SPECIAL RATES FOR interpack 2017 EXHIBITORS

Messe Düsseldorf‘s interpack alliance will be extended to include a promising market in the Middle East: pacprocess Tehran will take place from October 12 – 15, 2017 at Shahr-e-Aftab (Exhibiran International), Iran’s most modern exhibition center. Held in cooperation with the Iranian organizer BRP, this trade fair is geared towards companies from the packaging sector and related process industries across the entire value chain. The target groups are food and beverage, pharmaceutical and cosmetics, confectionary and pastry, consumer goods and industrial goods manufacturers as well as suppliers of packaging media, materials and the corresponding manufacturing technology. Furthermore, it addresses suppliers of packaging solutions for logistics, packaging designers as well as related service suppliers. The exhibiting companies benefit from the global network and market expertise of Messe Düsseldorf and it’s No.1 international trade fair for the packaging sector - interpack. In addition, companies exhibiting at interpack 2017 can participate in pacprocess Teheran within a joint pavilion at special rates. pacprocess Tehran is supported by the Italian Packaging Machinery Association UCIMA, the Spanish Packaging Machinery and Printing Press Association AMEC envasgraf as well as the Association Flexible Packaging Europe (fpe). Held concurrently will be “components – Special Trade Fair by interpack” that caters to the upstream suppliers to the packaging and process industries. Its exhibits range from drive and control technologies to machinery parts and auxiliaries for packaging materials. Other concurrently held events include the IPAP Printing & Packaging Expo as well as the iFood Expo.

Since international sanctions were eased in early 2016, Iran has been an extremely attractive market because the economy has a back-log of demand in all fields. A well-educated, relatively young population of over 80 million increasingly demands high-quality packaged goods, which cannot be produced in a competitive quality with the existing, outdated technical equipment of the local companies. This creates high investment pressure among local producers. There are big opportunities opening up especially for European investors and partners since these are highly valued by Iranians. In 2015, 16.5 million tons of pre-packed food was sold in Iran – the annual growth rate stood at 3%. The pastry segment was particularly dynamic with a growth rate of 19%.

“The Iranian market holds many opportunities for the packaging sector and related process industries. We now accompany interested companies with our expertise as part of the interpack alliance while helping Iranian companies invest in modern equipment by means of a Financing and Leasing Lounge operated in cooperation with credit institutes at the same time,” stated Bernd Jablonowski, Global Portfolio Director Processing & Packaging at Messe Düsseldorf.

Shahr-e-Aftab (Exhibiran International) is Iran’s latest and biggest exhibition center. Situated between Tehran city and the international airport with access to several highways and also excellent public transportation connections, these fairgrounds offer1.3 million square feet of exhibit space in 16 halls with state-of-the-art technical equipment, traditional Persian landscaping and comprehensive service offerings including food service, hotels, banks and multi- level car parks.

Also involving Messe Düsseldorf and held parallel with pacprocess Tehran and components Tehran 2017 will be IPAP – Printing & Packaging Expo trade fair - with ranges for the print media sector. It is part of the product family of Düsseldorf’s international trade fair drupa, the no.1 event for printing technologies and addresses experts from the printing and packaging industry, the publishing and media sector, marketing and IT, agencies, brand owners and other industry customers from vertical markets..
