More than
910 pavilions introduce the latest products, technologies, technical solutions
and services for the printing and packing industry, including folding and gluing
machines, die cutting machines, comprehensive printing and packaging services,
and offset printing machines.

The exhibition
will feature seminars on “Smart printing factory and experience in implementing
digital transformation for printing businesses”.

Ngoc Sang, President of the Vietnam Packaging Association (VINPAS), said that
Vietnam’s economy has seen significant progress, and an increase in domestic consumption
and production demand has stimulated growth of printing and packaging services.
However, the industry is facing a big challenge due to the shortage of high quality
material resources.

Over the
past two decades, VietnamPrintPack has played a vital role in supporting the business
community to seek suitable solutions and cutting edge technologies for
development. The event is expected to provide a platform for local and foreign
companies in the field to exchange information and explore business
opportunities, he added.

Judy Wang, Chairwoman of Yorker exhibition
company shared that the industry is forecast to grow more than 13% a year and
there is room for growth. VietnamPrintPack 2023 is expected to
create favourable conditions for the business community both at home and abroad to seize
opportunities and boost cooperation in the coming time./.
