Going Global in INDOPRINT 2012

Going Global in INDOPRINT 2012

Since the announcement earlier this year that INDOPACK, INDOPRINT and INDOPLAS will be showcasing on an international stage in 2012, response from potential exhibitors and industry associations has been extremely positive.

Co-organized by Messe D�sseldorf Asia and WAKENI (PT Wahana Kemalaniaga Makmur), the three exhibitions will offer a high-quality platform for exhibitors and industry partners to present latest technologies on machinery, processing solutions, equipment and services.

According to Indonesian-based trade show organizer � WAKENI, Indonesian companies are keen to showcase to a more global audience now particularly with the booming manufacturing sectors. �The successful editions of the three exhibitions over the last decade have seen the exhibitions rapidly expand through the years alongside a growing manufacturing and industrial sector and expanding Indonesian economy.�

�We have received numerous enquiries and support for the internationalization of the shows from both past and potential exhibitors, locally and overseas. There has also been increasing interest and demand from within the ASEAN region, a clear indication of Indonesia�s growth markets in these sectors,� said Rini Sumardi, director, WAKENI. �The exhibitions are also strongly supported by Kementerian Perindustrian (Ministry for Industry) Republic of Indonesia, Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, German-Indonesian Chamber of Industry and Commerce, and other relevant Indonesian bodies,� she added.

Managing Director of Messe D�sseldorf Asia, Gernot Ringling, said the highly positive feedback received from potential exhibitors and industry associations have shown a keen interest in doing business in Indonesia as it is also a strategic springboard to other ASEAN countries. �There is certainly a growing interest in the Indonesian market which is manifested in the support from one of the world�s most important industrial associations; VDMA � German Engineering Federation, and their plastics and rubber machinery, food procession and packaging machinery and printing and paper equipment and supplies divisions, and the timing of the exhibitions in 2012 could not be at a more opportune moment.�

�We are taking a major step forward by taking these exhibitions that are well-established and highly successful events onto a global platform,� he added. Ringling believes that with strong participation by international companies from all sectors of the plastics, packaging and printing industries this will also make it possible to �showcase more new and emerging technologies that will provide a catalyst to further boost the industries in Indonesia.�

�With interest from potential exhibitors already gaining momentum, we are confident that this three-in-one format will attract more exhibiting companies and visitors and boost recognition of INDOPACK, INDOPRINT and INDOPLAS as one of ASEAN�s leading destinations for plastics, packaging and printing solutions,� said Ringling.

Messe D�sseldorf Asia will work closely with the k, interpack and drupa teams at Messe D�sseldorf GmbH as well as the 71 worldwide representative offices to increase and enhance the value and exposure of INDOPACK, INDOPRINT and INDOPLAS on an international scale.

To be held biennially, exhibitor promotions are now in full swing for the 2012 exhibitions that will take up three halls at the Jakarta International Expo Kemayoran. To be included in the initial space assignment for the 2012 shows, applications must be received by the end of 2011. International visitor promotions will begin in the fourth quarter of this year.
