All in Print China 2018 to Focus on Future

CHICAGO, IL | About one year before the start of All in Print China 2018, the China International Exhibition for All Printing Technology and Equipment, approximately 60% of the exhibit space has been booked. The event will take place October 24–28, 2018, at the New International Expo Center in Shanghai and will feature nine halls and some 1 million sq ft of exhibition space. The show is jointly organized by Messe Düsseldorf (Shanghai) Co., the Printing Technology Association of China, and the China Academy of Printing Technology. 

“Since its first event in 2003, All in Print has developed into one of the most important trade fairs for the Asian and, in particular, the Chinese printing sector,” says Sabine Geldermann, global head for printing technologies at Messe Düsseldorf. “Every two years All in Print in Shanghai is the platform for communicating ideas, offering technological trends and developments, and providing key impulses for the Asian sector. Both exhibitors and visitors value the trade fair for its market-oriented, professional, and international atmosphere.”

China is developing into a quality-oriented producer, says Messe Düsseldorf, and the schedule for industrial change has been set by the Chinese government with its “Made in China 2025” strategy which relates to China’s 13th five-year plan for innovation-driven modernization of Chinese industry. The digital change affecting print and packaging companies has already begun with the increased merging of smart manufacturing and production thereby opening up huge market potential for the digital printing industry (cloud computing, big data, mobile Internet technology, etc.).

With its motto “Enter the Era of Intelligent Printing,” All in Print 2018 will focus on intelligent printing and packaging technologies in Asia. The eight exhibit segments will reflect the dynamic market developments: Digital Pre-Press, Comprehensive Printing, Post-Press Converting, Packaging Equipment, Ink & Innovative Materials, Label Industry, Flexo Technology, and Innovation Factory.

Successfully launched in 2016 the Innovation Factory Pavilion will pick up on cutting-edge technologies such as 3D printing, functional printing, green printing, smart factory, as well as virtual and augmented reality technologies. In the Digital Pre-Press Pavilion, visitors can see the latest trends in digital printing and also test new applications and options. A new special area for corrugated cardboard and flexible packaging will promote interaction between the printing and packaging industries. Complementing the exhibits will be what organizers says is a first-class supporting program of conferences and seminars.
