With the value of MENA’s commercial printing sector predicted to reach US$32 billion this year, Gulf Print & Pack is becoming an ever more essential date in the diary.
Ideal for printers, service providers, brand owners, designers and others, the exhibition is the perfect ‘all in one place’ forum for sourcing new technologies, networking with key suppliers, discovering different markets and boosting knowledge: a formula enriched by the fact that the show’s reach encompasses Africa, the Middle East, South Asia and South Eastern Europe.
This year, displays will showcase the latest in solutions such as multi-substrate presses, wide and narrow format digital presses, laser die-cutting, 3D printing, smart labels/packaging and software. Inkjet – which continues to be the region’s fastest growing print technology, delivering CAGR of 12.7% – will be another key focus.
For each technology, visitors will get the chance to experience live demonstrations – not just of hardware, machinery and materials, but of how each can contribute to growing segments including educational and children’s books, photobooks, direct mail, posters, banners, digitally printed textiles and display graphics.
