PL – The Festival Marketing, Printing & Packaging took place on September 10-11, 2014 at the Warsaw Expo XXI. The sixth event of its kind had been expanded with the addition of the exhibition area packaging and was staged in Hall 2 of the exhibition complex – the previous year venue location, Hall 4, no longer offered sufficient space.
The trade fair was therefore divided up into three exhibition zones, the promotional products players, principally reputable Polish companies, including also leading multi-range generalists with their Polish subsidiaries, but also international suppliers and specialists, exhibited their products in the front area of the hall. According to the official figures, around 150 exhibitors participated in the trade fair. According to the organisers, with approx. 3,000 registered visitors, the number of advance registrations was up on the previous year. The official attendance figure was not available at the time of going to press, however the fair seemed to be well-attended and the exhibitors’ comments were also very positive, in their opinion the quality and quantity of the visitors was higher than at last year’s event.
Obviously the expansion of the event’s portfolio was well appreciated, all of the signs indicate that the show is set for further growth.
A further report will follow in the next issue of eppi magazine, No. 101 (September 24, 2014).
