IPACK-IMA 2018: Another Great Success

1,503 exhibitors, 68,802 visitors, 62,000 square metres of floor space.  These were the extremely encouraging figures of the last edition of IPACK-IMA, Italy's largest packaging technology trade show, which took place at the Fiera Milano Rho fairground, (Milano), from May 29 to June 1, 2018.
Noteworthy were the data regarding international attendees: a total of 18,577 foreign visitors from 146 countries, 27% of the total and two and a half times more than in the previous edition (2015).
 
The success of the shows was also reflected in the traffic on the trade show website: 870,000 visits overall and 600,000 views of the interactive catalog page. With regards to social media, IPACK-IMA and MEAT-TECH generated 2.45 million interactions on LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter over the last three months.
 
Another major factor behind the success of the exhibitions was the joint scheduling with other industry shows under The Innovation Alliance banner: Plast, Print4All, Intralogistica Italia, Ipack-Ima, and Meat-Tech.
 
Innovation Alliance reached 150,110 visitors, including 105,770 buyers, showcasing innovation and technologies for the plastic and rubber processing, processing and packaging, converting and printing, and internal logistics.
