In order to more clearly communicate how this Parisian event brings together the entire packaging supply chain, from 2016 on it will be known as “all4pack”, but this year it retains the title of Emballage, held in tandem with Manutention, dedicated to handling, warehousing and logistics. Together, the two events bring to Paris the international offer of materials, products, machinery and technologies for packaging, processing, printing and handling, with an expected attendance of 1500 exhibitors and 100 thousand visitors, predominantly from the EMEA region, as well as a new strategic partner (the fairs of the PackPlus India circuit) that represents a bridge to Asian markets.
