Auspack organiser Exhibitions and Trade Fairs says the show welcomed 6000 people pver its four days,, the biggest display of exhibitors and brands, including the largest contingent of international exhibitors.
Anne-Marie Mina, marketing manager with Exhibition and Trade Fairs, says, “There were so many elements that went into making this show a resounding success. From augmented reality, virtual reality and the customer-service robot AMY all creating interactive and engaging visitor experiences, to the product launches that happened right across the show floor, 2017 was one very memorable show.”
Mark Dingley, chairman of the APPMA says, “The new awards and processing day, held as part of the growing packaging and processing week, were excellent inclusions and added a lot of value for visitors to what was already Australasia’s most innovative event for the packaging and processing industry.
“The inaugural PIDA recognised companies and individuals who are making a significant difference in their field, and the winners were very warmly received at the gala night and afterwards.
“The highly successful processing day – which was a free half-day event – gave attendees the opportunity to hear the latest advanced technologies and developments in the meat-processing industry. Feedback showed attendees found the information valuable, as they also did with the existing and very popular National Technical Forums.
“As always, the APPMA would like to thank our members, exhibitors, National Technical Forum attendees and visitors to Auspack for their support. Besides the opportunities to see the latest technical developments and solutions, the event is always excellent for networking.”
Mina says, “Along with all its other achievements, Auspack was also the biggest in terms of the amount and type of technology. This also included the very popular livestreaming videos on Auspack’s Facebook page, where suppliers showcased the benefits of their solutions. All of these factors contributed to why visitors and exhibitors find Auspack so informative.
“For three consecutive shows, we have continued to grow the event and continued breaking records. I am super excited that everything went so well and that visitors and exhibitors alike gained so much.”
Auspack 2019 will take place at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre
