Alongside the well-established CHINA PHARM China International Pharmaceutical and Cosmetic Industry Exhibition), PacPro Asia, FoodPex and BulkPex will have their premiere. For all companies interested in the growing Chinese market, SWOP will provide a perfect platform to present their products and solutions to a large audience, to get new business connections and to explore the potential for new partnerships.

The trade show quartet is organized by Messe Düsseldorf and its subsidiary Messe Düsseldorf Shanghai in cooperation with their long-time partner Adsale Exhibition Services and the China Center for Food & Drug International Exchange (CCFDIE). SWOP is supported by the Forum Packaging Materials, newly established by the associations Food Processing Machinery and Packaging Machinery, Plastics and Rubber Machinery as well as Printing and Paper Technology of the German Engineering Federation (VDMA).

FoodPex 2015, International Food Processing and Packaging Exhibition, will concentrate on packaging solutions for the food and beverage industry. It is predicted that in 2015, China will supersede the U.S. as the largest food market in the world, with an anticipated increase of the market volume to more than EUR 1 billion. Consequently, there will be numerous business opportunities for modern packaging technology and materials, processing and bottling systems as well as testing, safety and disposal systems.

BulkPex 2015, International Bulk Packaging Technology and Equipment Exhibition, is the trade show organizers’ response to the specific requirements of the Asian market in general and the Chinese market in particular. As the third-largest nation in the world in terms of land area and with the highest population worldwide, China not only has vast transport routes, but it is also export champion and the second-largest importer of goods in the world. Therefore, external and bulk packaging plays a major role and BulkPex will present technological solutions for this particular segment. In addition, the trade show will feature machinery and equipment as well as labeling and goods tracking systems.
