Exhibitor applications for Shanghai World of Packaging 2019 (swop) are now available online at www.swop-online.com/en with Early Bird specials. Again jointly organized by Messe Düsseldorf (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. and Adsale Exhibition Services Ltd., the event will take place at the Shanghai New International Expo Center from November 25 - 28, 2019. As a member of Messe Düsseldorf’s interpack alliance, swop 2019 will provide a “supply and demand" platform for the Asia-Pacific packaging market, making full use of interpack’s global network and professional resources. It will cover end use industries such as food, beverage, confectionery, baked goods, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and daily care products as well as non-food consumer goods and industrial goods, providing an encompassing trading platform for manufacturers of processing and packaging machinery and materials.

The upcoming edition of swop will focus on artificial intelligence, printing and labeling, e-commerce and logistics packaging as well as personalized packaging and packaging design in order to provide innovative packaging solutions and intelligent processing and packaging production lines for the entire industry chain. Five special exhibition areas will address current themes in the packaging industry.

"SAVE FOOD" returns to fight food waste and loss in China
The SAVE FOOD initiative of the partners Messe Düsseldorf, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and UN Environment (former UNEP) aims to drive innovations, promote interdisciplinary dialogue and discussions in order to generate solutions across the entire value chain “from field to fork” and make contributions against global food loss. After its successful debut at swop 2017, SAVE FOOD will again be present at swop 2019 with a special area and forum to share innovative concepts and technologies with the public.

“FMCG Future Zone"
The total transaction volume of China’s Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) B2B industry in 2018 is predicted to reach about $ 3.1 billion.
