With 235 million printing, packaging and converting machines imported in 2019, Turkey is an increasingly important market for the Graphic Arts sector. In particular for Italy, which is the second foreign supplier, with 56 million goods exported to the country in 2019 and a growth forecast for the next three years.

Acimga’s Streaming Roadshow Future Factory is dedicated to this and other important reference markets: an original format, designed to stimulate contact between suppliers and buyers in the various countries touched, which not only represents an effective window for the promotion of Italian products and technologies, but also provides important information and feedback.

The first event, held this November 4th and dedicated to Turkey, followed by more than 150 members from all over the EMEA area, showed it effectively. It allowed the virtual meeting with the local community, introduced by the top management of ICE-Agency, Italian Embassy, Chamber of Commerce of Istanbul and focused on the key issues of sustainability and industry 4.0.

The top management of OMET, Simec Group, DCT and Ferrarini & Benelli represented the excellence of the Italian industry, followed by the analysis and considerations of a series of important Turkish operators: the packaging producers Erken Ambalaj and Burak Ambalaj, the printer Imak and the brand owners Mask Gida and Tibet Group, followed by two important magazine publishers.

Andrea Briganti, director of Acimga, introduced and concluded the Roadshow, recalling the other appointments of this year’s end:
