The trade show aims to develop and promote Thailand as a regional hub for corrugated packing production.
A group of industry associations and a Thai government body has announced the 2nd edition of the CCE South East Asia - Thailand 2018 trade show, which will highlight the Thai Corrugated Packaging industry.
The event runs concurrently with ICE South East Asia from 5-7 September 2018 at the Bangkok International Trade and Exhibition Centre (BITEC), Bangna, and will highlight the latest machines and equipment from leading manufacturers throughout ASEAN, offering a showcase of direct-to-user solutions.
The four organisations comprising the CCE South East Asia partnership are the Thai Corrugated Packaging Association; the Thai Pulp and Paper Industries Association; the Thai Screen Printing & Graphic Imaging Association; and the Thailand Convention & Exhibition Bureau (TCEB).
The CCE - ICE 2018 event is part of the group's broader aim to expand manufacturing capabilities and drive sustainable growth in the Thai Corrugated Packaging Manufacturing industry, in line with government's 'Thailand 4.0' digital-era development plan.
The first edition in 2016 logged over 3,248 trade visitors and over 90 exhibitors present. The growth of ASEAN’s corrugated and folding carton industry has led to a 40% additional floor space in the 2018 edition.
"Nowadays, corrugated packaging industries in ASEAN countries must be able to meet growing local demand and rising customer numbers. With a combined population of 620 million, most of working age, ASEAN countries have experienced a steady rise in consumer demand," said Kanokwara Anutarawatr, senior manager, Mack Brooks Exhibitions Asia Ltd.
"This is a key factor driving national economic growth levels in the region, which has led to expansion of the consumer goods and packaging markets and recent innovations in the corrugated packaging industry.”
