Gulf Print & Pack 2019 will look at how printers and print service providers can increase efficiency and reduce waste.
The show will be held from April 15 to 18 at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
According to a press release, Gulf Print & Pack 2019 is the leading print technology sourcing show for printers and Print Service Providers (PSPs) from across Africa, the Middle East, South Asia and South Eastern Europe.
Registration for the show is now open, and exhibitors cover all the fastest growing market segments, including educational and children’s books, photobooks, direct mail, posters, banners, digitally-printed textiles and display graphics.
The show will present the latest technologies and products from the entire field of commercial and package printing. Already confirmed to exhibit at the show include: Afra, Bobst, Frimpeks, Green Graphics, Gulf Commercial Group, Heliozid, Konica Minolta, Prestige Graphics, RotoMetrics, SMI Coated Products, UPM Raflatac and Xerox, as well as first-time exhibitors Apex Industries, Arasta Makina Kimya, Jinhang Flexible Packaging, Lemorau, Meteors, Pule Printing Ltd and Roshan Packages.
Lisa Milburn, managing director, Gulf Print and Pack, commented: “The Middle East remains one of the world’s key commercial print growth regions, with huge untapped potential for digital technologies. This is reflected in the continuing growth of our show, which plays a vital role in driving the industry forward. At Gulf Print & Pack 2017, we started to see a trend, with half of our visitors interested in digital printing presses; and this year we expect to see this trend explode, given rising demand for short run digital commercial and package printing, digitally printed labels and smart labels.”
“Although its core audience has typically been Middle Eastern and African, we are seeing the show become more international with each edition, so we anticipate an even greater global representation at this year’s show.”
She added: “This year’s edition of Gulf Print & Pack is especially well timed in the run up to Expo 2020 Dubai, which will create massive opportunities for all type of print including advertising posters, smart label and packaging products and digital textiles. Given this huge print potential, we expect our show to be a key sourcing event and we are extremely excited about the opportunities this will create. We look forward to meeting with exhibitors and visitors onsite.”
