POSITIVE GROWTH FOR PRINTPACK ALGER 2018 – POWERED BY DRUPA

Due to the increasing interest in the North and West African market as well as the high level of satisfaction at the previous event, printpack alger 2018 is showing positive growth. The 6th International Trade Fair for Print Technologies and Packaging for Algeria, the Maghreb and West Africa will take place from March 11 – 13, 2018 at Centre International de Conférences CIC in Algiers, Algeria. printpack alger 2018 is jointly organized by fairtrade and Messe Düsseldorf and supported by drupa – the leading international trade fair for printing technologies held in Düsseldorf, Germany.

The Algerian, Maghreb and West African markets for paper processing, printing technologies, finishing and packaging printing are on the upswing. According to the VDMA (German Mechanical Engineering Industry Association), Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia imported print and paper technology worth Euro 131 million in 2016. In packaging technology, the amount reached Euro 340 million. West Africa imported printing and paper technology worth Euro 122 million and Euro 240 million in packaging technology.
